Did You Know?
Firestone Country Club was established in 1929, with the South Course designed by Bert Way. Robert Trent Jones Sr. extensively redesigned it prior to the 1960 PGA Championship – the first of three times that Firestone held that event.
The layout is known for a collection of long and rugged par 4s and for the 667-yard par-5 16th hole, known as “The Monster.”
The course has hosted various PGA TOUR events over the years, including a World Golf Championship event in 1999-2001 and 2003-2018 before transitioning to hosting PGA TOUR Champions in 2019.
