The Concession Golf Club
During the 1969 Ryder Cup while playing the last hole, Jack Nicklaus astonished the golfing world by surrendering a short two foot putt to Tony Jacklin, establishing only the second tie in the history of the Ryder Cup. That humbling gesture was the inspiration for the founding of The Concession, one of America's finest residential country clubs. The Concession is an extraordinary private community and an admirable complement to the distinct experience offered by the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course and The Concession Golf Club.
Set among towering oaks, tradition continues to thrive as the distinguished clubhouse is the focus and social center for The Concession. Spacious verandas and ample windows provide sweeping golf course and shimmering lake views. Honoring the history and traditional values of golf lore, the clubhouse is filled with the memorabilia of renowned golf luminaries. Tournaments and events are also showcased including the Ryder Cup match in 1969 that provides The Concession with its distinctive character.

The Concession Golf Course
Heralded as the “Best New Private Course of 2006” by distinguished Golf Digest magazine, The Concession Golf Course was designed by Jack Nicklaus in association with Tony Jacklin. This 18 hole, par 72 course is set on 520 acres of ruggedly pristine land dotted with majestic pines and massive oaks. It totals 7,470 yards from the longest tees and measures three miles from end to end. The course rating is 77.6 with a slope rating of 155.
Particular attention is paid to detail from moving mature trees to strategic scenic locations along the course to the sand that was brought in from Northern Ohio for the bunkers which are hand raked each day.
Complementing the championship golf course is one of the largest private practice areas in the world where members can easily refine their skills. The expansive 23 acre practice facility boasts a driving range, an elevated tee area, a 14,000 square foot chipping green and a 10,000 square foot putting green.
The Concession is one of the few clubs in the country using the Advanced Aer system under all 18 greens thereby guaranteeing tournament quality play conditions and Titleist Pro V1 balls are used throughout the entire facility. It’s no wonder our practice area was recently selected by Golf Digest Magazine as one of the top ranked practice facilities in America.The Concession Real Estate for Sale
