Providing the serious golfer the opportunity to experience world-class golf has been the driving philosophy of Wolf Run Golf Club since inception. Wolf Run Golf Club was conceived in the early 1980's by the late Dr. Jack Leer, a local dentist and successful amateur golfer, whose dream was to build a demanding, world-class golf club for serious golfers. His vision was to craft a course employing the strength and beauty of the natural landscape while emulating the unique theories of 1920's design. To create his vision, Leer turned to Steve Smyers, an accomplished player and well-traveled student of the legendary architects and the golf courses that they created.Today Wolf Run Golf Club is continually mentioned as one of the best golf courses in the Midwest. Wolf Run Golf Club has been a mainstay on the Golf Digest Top 100 list and listed in the top 25 most difficult and best playing memberships by Golf Digest.
The South Course at NCR Country Club, a par 71 covering 7,055 yards of wooded, rolling terrain, has long been considered a championship caliber golf course. It has often been listed among the "Top 100" Classical Courses (currently 69th) in the nation by Golfweek, and a perennial fixture on Golf Digest’s Top 100 list for many years. The South Course has been the venue for many recognizable national events. It was the site of the 51st PGA Championship in 1969, won by Ray Floyd, the 41st U.S. Women's Open in 1986, won by Jane Geddes, the 1998 U.S. Mid Amateur won by Spider Miller and most recently the site of the 2005 U.S. Senior Open Championship, won by Allen Doyle.
