Here’s a little blurb from the club’s website: Established in 1890, Plainfield is a world-renowned country club steeped in tradition and history. For over 125 years, its goal has been to give its members an array of club sports and social activities, all within a warm and inviting atmosphere. Plainfield Country Club is home to a timeless and nationally-ranked, Donald Ross golf course. Gil Hanse has supervised the renovation and restoration of this spectacular layout that presents a modern challenge while maintaining its traditional feel. Plainfield is much more than a world-class golf experience, it’s also a welcoming country club community that offers tennis, paddle, squash, and swimming, along with a comfortable setting for dining and social activities.
The Plainfield Country Club golf course, brought to life by famed course architect Donald Ross, has been celebrated as a consistently top-ranked course in the U.S. by Golf Digest and Golfweek magazines, and has been enjoyed by Club members and guests for nearly 100 years.
Over the decades, the Club has proudly hosted two U.S. National Championships – the 1978 U.S. Amateur (won by John Cook), the 1987 U.S. Women’s Open (won by Laura Davies), the 2011 Barclays (won by Dustin Johnson), 2015 Barclays (won by Jason Day) and numerous State and Regional Championships.
Plainfield Country Club is currently ranked 24th on Golfweek's roster of America's Greatest Classic courses, 50th in the country by Golf Magazine and 78th in the country by Golf Digest on their list of America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses.
