Muirfield Village Golf Club History

Address: 5750 Memorial Drive
Dublin, OH 43017

Muirfield Village is an upscale golf-oriented community located in Dublin, Ohio, a suburb north of Columbus . Founded by Jack Nicklaus, it is named after Muirfield, Scotland, where he won the first of his three British Open titles in 1966 to complete the first of his three career grand slams. The village contains an eponymous golf course that hosts the Memorial Tournament, a PGA Tour event played each spring since its inception in 1976. A statue of the founder can be found along Muirfield Drive.

Two golf courses are located within Muirfield Village: The Country Club at Muirfield, which also has tennis and swimming, and the signature Muirfield Village Golf Club, where the Memorial Tournament is held annually. MVGC has also hosted several national championships and international team competitions, including the 1992 U.S. Amateur, 1987 Ryder Cup, the 1998 Solheim Cup and the 1986 U.S. Junior Amateur. It and The Greenbrier in West Virginia are the only two places to have hosted both the Ryder and Solheim Cups. Muirfield Village has also been selected to host the President’s Cup in 2013. When asked whether he would be interested in captaining the U.S. squad in the matches on his home course, Jack Nicklaus responded that although he would enjoy it, he believes captains should be more “current” with the players on the team.

Muirfield Village is controlled by Nicklaus, and each fall he makes changes to the course in order to accommodate new technology, make the course more enjoyable for members and tournament spectators, or simply offer a tougher test for the pros. In recent years changes have included lengthening several holes, including the first, tenth, twelfth, and seventeenth, adding bunkers, particularly at the tenth and seventeenth, and re routing a stream on the eighteenth hole. In 2005, Golf Digest rated Muirfield Village as the top golf course in Ohio, an honor which it retained for the next two years. It has also consistently been among the top 25 courses in the United States.
