Worcester Country Club was opened at this location in 1914 and subsequently hosted the U.S. Open in 1925, the Ryder Cup in 1927, and the U.S. Women's Open in 1960. As noted on the face of the card, and rightly so, this was "One of the Finest Tournament Courses in the East."

The golf course itself is a Donald Ross design, one of 413 by him in the United States, and is listed by the Donald Ross Society as being among his best. The photograph below shows that the clubhouse looks much the same today as it did in his time.
