Muirfield Village GC, Dublin, Ohio
Located north of Columbus, Ohio, Muirfield Village is nestled in an upscale golf community. Its namesake originates from a Scottish town and was founded by Jack Nicklaus, who earned his first golf grand slam in 1966 in the original Muirfield. The village has hosted the Memorial Tournament every year since the mid-1970s.
Muirfield Village Golf Club also hosted the 1987 Ryder Cup and the 2013 Presidents Cup. The course is under constant supervision by Nicklaus, a golf legend who keeps it up to date and current. He believes in shaping the course to meet new-age golf trends and technology. From the pro tees, this par-72 stretches 7,352 yards.
The Memorial Tournament is unique for its honorary ceremony that inducts golfers to a memorial. It is also one of five Invitational tournaments in the PGA Tour, meaning its playing field is reduced to 120 from 156 golfers.
