In the late summer of 1978, Mayfield opened its first 6 holes. We humbly began with open fairways and trees sparsely scattered over the terrain. What stood out then is still our pride: our greens are always receptive. By the fall of 1979, our first 9 holes were completed, and by the summer of 1986 we were ready to open our 18-hole course. I vividly remember the day we opened the completed course. My father stood proudly on the front steps of the clubhouse, as much as to say he had accomplished his dream. The picture on our scorecard recreates that moment in time. If you look closely at the front rail, when you visit our clubhouse, you will see the years of wear from Dad’s arm.
