Glen Arven Country Club

Est. 1892

About Us

Founded in 1892, Glen Arven is one of the oldest clubs in America. Its 120 year history is right and fascinating: Ben Hogan, Gene Sarazen, Byron Nelson and many other golf legends walked its fairways during the last 1930s when Glen Arven was a stop on the fledgling PGA tour. U.S. Women’s Amateur champions Beatrix Hoyt (1896, 1897, 1898), Frances Griscom (1900), and Thomasville native Mary Lena Faulk (1953) were all members of Glen Arven. The club has hosted many important golf championships over the years including three Georgia Women’s Amateurs and one Georgia Men’s Amateur. It was on the 18th hole of Glen Arven in 1956 that then president Dwight D. Eisenhower deemed himself fit enough to run for another term as President of the United States.
Today, Glen Arven’s attractions include a beautiful clubhouse with gourmet dining, a challenging historic golf course re-designed in 2013 by highly renown golf course architect Bob Cupp, and one of the finest tennis and pickleball facilities in the area. In 2019 our tennis and pickleball facilites received the USTA Outstanding Private Facility Award.
