Calendar Of Events
In 1921, business and railroad executives established the Franklin County Country Club for holiday outings with important guests and family. As golf became more popular, the membership expanded and a larger clubhouse, restaurant, and additional needed facilities were built including a banquet hall, locker rooms, pro shop, and a swimming pool.
Golf at "The Country Club of Southern Illinois" requires contemplation and thought because of the placement of water hazards, the maturation of hardwood trees, tall pines lining the fairways, and the presence of earth berms and bunkers. Zoysia Fairways on rolling terrain were the final touch.
Leisure golfers aren't abused by the course and experienced players don't feel like they have just taken an easy stroll through the park. Franklin County Country Club looks, feels, and plays like a true resort golf course.
