Since the 1950s, Firestone and its famed South Course have annually hosted the biggest names in professional golf. In addition to being the site of three PGA Championships, the club was the long-time venue for the PGA TOUR’s World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and its predecessor, the World Series of Golf. It currently hosts the Kaulig Companies Championship on the PGA TOUR Champions.
The North Course is a splendid Robert Trent Jones design that opened for member play in 1969. Marked by numerous lakes and streams, the North Course has played host to both the American Golf Classic and the World Series of Golf. Formerly known as the West Course, the Fazio Course continues to shine after a recent bunker renovation project that included the removal of 30 bunkers and the renovation of the remaining 41.
Along with the Kaulig Companies Championship, Firestone played host to a Senior British Open qualifier on July 10 on the Fazio Course. The 2023 event marked the second Senior British Open qualifier for the Fazio Course – it also hosted the qualifier in 2021.
Non-members of Firestone can reserve a limited number of stay-and-play packages this season and experience the club’s celebrated offerings. Opened last fall, the Firestone golf experience now includes BigShots Golf Firestone, a 22,500‐square‐foot innovative golf, dining and entertainment venue that is open year-round and includes a two-story tee-line with 44 interactive tee boxes. Situated alongside the Raymond C. Firestone Public 9 Golf Course, BigShots Golf Firestone is open to the public.
