Congress Lake Club's golf course was originally established in 1919 and was designed by Wille Park Jr. His design was located along the current golf course's holes eight through eighteen, eighteen being the only hole unchanged by our course's second designer, Donald Ross.

Ross designed the current layout in 1926, and used the natural contours of the land to dictate how the championship course should be played. Large oak trees line the lush bentgrass fairways and small undulating greens that are signature features of a Donald Ross course. Occasional views of the lake can also be enjoyed when playing the front nine holes. It is playable for the novice, yet challenging for the advanced player, making it unique and memorable.

The Club's golf outings are second to none. Congress Lake regularly hosts corporate outings, charity fundraisers, and private tournaments. Our impecaably conditioned Donald Ross course and serene lakeside setting regularly draw large groups of golfers. Our PGA professionals and veteran event planners do everything possible to make your golf event memorable.

The options are endless when you host an event at the Club!

The Congress Lake Club is a private, member-only social club organized as an IRS 501 c 7 not-for-profit corporation. All non-member events require sponsorship by a current Club member.
