Milwaukee Country Club is currently seeking Golf Course Maintenance Interns for the 2021 golf season.
Established in 1894, Milwaukee Country Club is Wisconsin’s oldest golf club and one of the oldest clubs in the Midwest. Originally located on Milwaukee’s East Side, the Country Club moved north to its present site in 1911.After several redesigns, the present golf course was officially opened on July 4, 1929. The course was designed by famed architects Harry S. Colt and Charles H. Alison.
In 2005, noted golf course architect Tom Doak of Renaissance Golf Design, Inc. agreed to develop a long-range plan for the club. Many of Mr. Doak’s recommended changes have been incorporated in today’s course. The club’s long-range plan will serve to confirm, preserve and restore the traditional Colt and Alison heritage which makes Milwaukee Country Club’s course a truly distinguished venue.
In the summer of 2020, the club continued the restoration of the golf course to the original Colt and Alison design. The project included tee and fairway redesign, bunker conversion to The Better Billy Bunker system, drainage installation, and rough renovation.
Milwaukee Country Club is annually ranked among the Top 100 golf courses in the United States. Golf Magazine currently ranks Milwaukee Country Club as the #71 golf course on their Greatest in America list.
