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.
