Inverness has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. and the World by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.
Byron Nelson, Hall of fame golfer and winner of 11 consecutive PGA tournaments, served as the golf professional at this historic club outside Toledo.
Characterized by tree-lined, narrow fairways and fast greens, this course is a ball-striker's paradise. The five finishing holes -- known as "Murderers' Row" -- ensure that no lead is safe down the stretch.
Inverness hosted the PGA Championship in 1986 and 1993, which was won by Paul Azinger. The U.S. Open was played at the club in 1920, 1931, 1957, and 1979, which was won by Hale Irwin. For more information, go to invernessclub.com.
GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teacher Dr. Gary Wiren wrote that Inverness was one of his favorite courses in his article, My Fab 5. Here's what he said:
"Inverness became the first major club to invite the professionals into the clubhouse, and it doesn't take you long to become immersed in the history and tradition of this marvelous place. It's hosted eight major championships, including four U.S. Opens. The greens are small and quick, and the course has been stretched to almost 7,300 yards, so you will need long irons or hybrids to reach some of the par 4s."Design - Golf Course at Inverness Club
