Penfield Country Club was founded in 1958 by a group of local businessmen with the dream of developing a top quality golf course experience for the membership.
Penfield Country Club is a private 18-pole championship golf course which opened its first nine holes in 1959 and the second nine (today’s back nine) in 1965. The four-tee placements per hole make the course enjoyable and challenging for all levels of play. Pete Craig’s design of Penfield Country Club (his first) was created on the idea of “Starting with a piece of rugged terrain and coming up with a real plush finished course.” Unlike many courses you’ll see in the area, Craig wanted to design a course that was walkable for golfers of all ages, so much so that he preferred to walk the grounds frequently to have the perfect idea of how he wanted Penfield Country Club to play.
Other special features of the golf course are two par five dog legs, two ponds that give added risk/reward for all levels of golfer and the greens. Designed with special contours and maintained by a fantastic grounds crew, Penfield Country Club has some of the best greens you will find in the Rochester area; providing a challenging, yet rewarding experience for all those who play.
