From the club website:
Established in 1908, The Beverly Country Club is a mainstay in the Chicagoland golf community.
From its inception, Beverly was recognized as a championship course, a distinction that still resonates almost one century later. George O’Neil, the club’s first golf professional, is credited with laying out Beverly’s original golf course, reportedly with the assistance of well-known golf course architect Tom Bendelow.
Beverly’s mark on American golf was firmly made when club officials decided to ask legendary architect Donald Ross to create a master plan to renovate the course and bring it back up to major championship standards. Over the course of nearly a decade, the entire Ross plan was adopted, again putting Beverly among the very finest golf courses in the country. In a fitting touch of déja vu, a dedicated group of Beverly Members recently led the club through a restoration of the golf course that reclaimed many of the Donald Ross features that had been lost over the decades. The result is a stunning test of golf that awaits the game’s best players.
