Our Course

Our picturesque 18-hole golf course designed by renowned course architect Bill Diddel is the heart of Meridian Hills Country Club. Since the first ball was hit off Hole #1 in 1923, the well-manicured greens have worked in concert with the subtle contour of the landscaping to create some of the most challenging and beautiful putting surfaces in the Midwest. Mature, tree-lined fairways put a premium on accurately driving the golf ball, a feature that has been emphasized by the renovations of legendary course designers George Fazio, Pete and Alice Dye, and Bob Lohmann. Our course is open 10 months out of the year and 7 days a week (Mondays after 2:00 pm during the Summer months).
