The History of Hanover Country Club

As we get ready to celebrate the 100th Year Celebration of the Hanover Country Club, we’d like to take a moment to share a part of our history for our members to truly appreciate and understand the excellence that we’re so excited to celebrate.

Built in 1923, the Hanover Country Club golf course was built during the golden era of American golf, cementing its place within our community and evolving into the pristine golf club we all know and love today.

HCC was founded by members of some of the most legendary clubs of the time, including Augusta, Pinehurst, Pine Valley, and Oakmonth. The land started as a humble horse farm. The founders, though, had bigger intentions- inspired by these still-prestigious institutions. 

With tight tree-lined fairways, lush greens, and intentionally placed greenside bunkers and moguls throughout the course, we have truly grown into a club to be proud of. Later adding many new amenities, including the pool and tennis courts in the 1940s, our club continued to innovate and expand to accommodate its growing membership.

Today, not only are we a well-maintained club, we have an abundance of activities and opportunities for our members, including our dining room and kitchen run by James Beard-Nominated Chef Robert McGrattan, who hosts chef nights, creates our always-evolving menus and will be providing us with many delicious offerings throughout our centennial celebration!

And throughout the years, Hanover Country Club has not only served as a social hub but a central part of the community where we can come together to eat, drink, laugh, and play the great game of golf.

Look out for upcoming announcements of the awesome events we are so excited to experience with you, starting with our April Shooting Event and Croquet Events
