Midlothian Country Club, a private club founded in 1898 by prominent Chicago businessmen looking for a summer retreat for their families. They came "way out to the country" (147th Street) and found a piece of property with rolling hills that reminded them of the Midlothian described in Sir Walter Scott's book "The Heart of Midlothian". That Midlothian is in Scotland where golf was first played and so it was chosen as a fitting name for the new club. The club was one of the first golf clubs in the country and remains a prestigious course. The mayor's annual charity golf classic is held every summer at the Midlothian Country Club. The club also played host to the 1914 U.S. Open.
