When European golf fans hear the words Medinah Country Club, images of Ian Poulter holing putts on Saturday and that magnificent come back on the Sunday come to mind, those Ryder Cup matches will live long in the memory and I am sure the European Tour players teeing it up here this week will have an extra bounce in their step.

The club was founded in 1924 by the Medinah Shriners (The Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine) and by the late 1920s had approximately 1,500 golfing and social members. The first golf course was opened for play in September 1925, this was followed by Course 2 in 1926, and finally Course 3 in 1928. All three courses were originally designed by Scotsman Tom Bendelow, but American golf course designers A.W. Tillinghast and Harry Collis played a major role in the redesign changes in the 1930s when they were commissioned to toughen up the number 3 course.
