MAYFIELD COUNTRY CLUB

MAYFIELD COUNTRY CLUB

The MAYFIELD COUNTRY CLUB, an invitational golf club located on approx. 211 acres at 1545 Sheridan Rd., LYNDHURST, was originally part of the EUCLID CLUB (1901). In 1908 some members withdrew from the Euclid Club and, under the leadership of Benjamin F. Bourne and Malcolm B. Johnson, organized the Mayfield Country Club (June 1909). W. H. (Bertie) Way, a former professional at the Euclid Club, searched for, selected, and designed the golf course. The original clubhouse, designed by architect FRANK B. MEADE, was opened 1 July 1911, and destroyed by fire on 10 Mar. 1914. Rebuilt and reopened on Labor Day, 1914, it was destroyed by fire a second time, 18 Apr. 1948, but was rebuilt on the same location and reopened in May 1949. In addition to GOLF, club activities include TENNIS, swimming, curling, paddle tennis, and social events for members such as receptions, dances, teas, and parties.
