Johnson City Country Club History

The tradition began in 1913, when local leaders founded the club as a nine-hole private golf course with 200 charter members. In 1919, the members solicited the services of golf course architect AW Tillinghast, who developed the existing golf course design. 100 years laters, his designs are still ranked in the top 100 best list in the United States. His designs include Pine Valley, Philadelphia Cricket Club, Baltusrol, Winged Foot, and Bethpage, of which multiple have been home to numerous US Open's and PGA Championships.

The layout at JCCC is a classic, golden era of golf design with amazing views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Easily walkable with short loops of holes, golfers and familes can spend time playing all 18 or any version of holes to suit your lifesyle and available free time. 

Johnson City Country Club hosts high-level amateur tournaments such as our own Tillinghast Invitational, as well as Tennessee Golf Association championships and intercollegiate team events.
