July 9, 2016 – Olympia Country Club
Famed golfer, Byron Nelson, once scored a 59 playing these links. He later returned for a nostalgic visit where he played such a fantastic game. When asked why he was back, he replied, “It was the only course I’ve shot 59 on!” Bud Ward, many time state and national amateur champion, started his golf career on our course.
Established in 1914, and moved to its current location in 1926, it started as a nine-hole course. Additional property was purchased in 1957 and the course was expanded to 18-holes. A pro shop, swimming pool and deep water dock were built at that time. The grounds are continuously upgraded with new drainage and irrigation to provide good year-round playing conditions.
The Club house was completely remodeled in 1989 and is listed on the National Registry of Historical Buildings. Read about its early history: Early History of Olympia C&GC.
