Moraine Country Club
Moraine Country Club was founded in 1930 when Alex “Nipper” Campbell – an accomplished player from Scotland and longtime professional at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts – was hired to design a golf course on Colonel Edward A. Deeds’ expansive Moraine Farms property in the Miami Valley.
Embodying design principles of his native land’s famed courses, Campbell used the natural topography and glacier-carved hills to construct a difficult test that attracted the 1945 PGA Championship, where Byron Nelson won his fifth major and ninth of 11 consecutive professional tournaments.
Moraine enlisted world-renowned architect Keith Foster to undertake a restoration of the golf course back to its original Scottish links-style roots in 2016. Foster’s reworking of the course’s bunkering and trees has earned Moraine a perennial place on Golfweek’s list of the Top 100 Classic Courses.
