Detailed description

Capital City Country Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Tallahassee, Florida.

Capital City Country Club first opened for play in 1920. The 18-hole course expansion was designed by A. W. Tillinghast in the 1930s. In 2009, Roy Albert Anderson, Gene Bates and Fred Couples redesigned/rennovated the Capital City golf course.

Capital City Country Club traces its' beginnings to 1908 when the Tallahassee Country Club was organized. The an initiation fee was $1.00 and dues were $1.00 per year. The golf course consisted of a few holes with sand greens was built on the site of the present eighteen hole course of the Capital City Country Club.

Before the end of the twenties, the course had been enlarged to nine (9) holes and a new club-house was constructed on the north side of the present thirteenth hole.The Tallahassee Country Club remained under private ownership until August 1935, when the Club gave the property to the City of Tallahassee, with the provision that the course would revert back to the original members of the Tallahassee Country Club should the City become unable continue to maintain it.

The City expanded the course to the regulation 18-hole layout designed by A. W. Tillinghast. For a little more than twenty years, the course was operated as a municipal facility.

In February 1956, the City, faced with deficits in its operation of the golf course and the need for capital improvements of the clubhouse, leased back to the Club for 99 years most of the property it had received as a gift two decades earlier. In May 1956, the Tallahassee Country Club assigned its lease to the newly chartered Capital City Country Club, whose membership included many of the original members of the Tallahassee Country Club. Continuious upgrades to the Club facilities have been made over the years.

The rolling, tree-llined 6,502 yardage 18-hole golf course is both challenging and beautiful.
