Welcome to the historic Inverness Club!

Inverness established its reputation, not to mention its place in American golf lore, beginning with the 1920 United States Open. At that event, Inverness members ushered in a new era by being the first private golf club to open their clubhouse doors to tournament participants. Since our inception, the club and its members have extended this hospitality to tens of thousands of guests. Whether you are attending a major championship at Inverness, a wedding or joining a member for a round of golf, we hope you enjoy our Midwest hospitality and treasured amenities.

Golf Bag Drop

Upon arrival, guests should drive directly toward the golf course, follow directions, turning right at the retainer wall, toward the Golf Shop. There will be an attendant on duty who will take your golf bags and assist you.  Upon departure, golf bags will be picked up in the same area.

On occasion, you may not have clubs in your possession.  Please let us know, and we will be happy to provide you a set of our rental clubs for a nominal fee.  We have invested in quality, name-brand clubs to serve your needs.

Pace of Play

Even though our course is more difficult than most, slow play is frowned upon.  Please be prepared to play in 4 hours or less.  Play Assistants will monitor the pace of play and assist members and guests throughout the round, as needed.

To improve your pace of play, please be prepared to play at all times. Always carry an extra ball. Be ready to hit when it is your turn and feel free to play ready golf. Play from the tee box that fits your skill level. If uncertain of club selection, please take two or three clubs with you to the ball.
