Dunedin Golf Club

The Dunedin Golf Club was designed by the world-renowned golf course architect Donald Ross and opened on January 1, 1927. From 1945 through 1962, Dunedin Golf Club was the home of the PGA of America. During that time, the Dunedin Golf Club hosted 18 Senior Tour Championships, marking the beginning of the Senior PGA Tour. 

The Dunedin Golf Club property is owned by the City of Dunedin and has had a long-standing agreement with Dunedin Country Club Inc., a non-profit organization, to operate and manage the Club. The latest agreement was renewed in May 2023, extending the partnership through the end of February 2024 at which time, the City assumed the management of the Dunedin Golf Club. 

The City of Dunedin is now making improvements and renovations to the golf club operations. The Course Restoration Project will restore the style characteristics of esteemed architect Donald Ross while also making clubhouse improvements. Both the clubhouse and course remain closed to the public while under construction. Join us for a grand celebration when the course and clubhouse reopen to the public in late fall 2024. Stay tuned for updates!
