Sedgefield Country Club — Hole No. 7
Donald Ross is considered the preeminent architect of golf courses in the United States. And while countless tournaments — many of them major championships — have been contested on his designs through the years, Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., is one of only two to currently host a regular PGA Tour event. (Photo: McConnell Golf)
Sedgefield Country Club — Hole No. 8
Opened in 1926, Sedgefield Country Club is the current home to the Wyndham Championship. Sedgefield has had an on-off relationship with the Wyndham, formerly best known as the Greater Greensboro Open, since the tournament’s inception in 1938.  (Photo: McConnell Golf)
Sedgefield Country Club — Hole No. 10
The first four Greater Greensboro Opens were co-hosted by Sedgefield Country Club and Starmount Forest Country Club. Beginning in 1945, after a break for World War II, the two clubs alternated hosting the tournament for a period of 16 years. After winning at Starmount in 1960, Sam Snead jokingly suggested to Starmount owner Edward Benjamin that he improve his beleaguered course. Benjamin took exception to Snead’s humor and banned the tour star for life. That led to Sedgefield taking over as the lone host. (Photo: McConnell Golf)
Greater Greensboro Open Program — 1973
The Greater Greensboro Open was played at Sedgefield Country Club uninterrupted from 1961 through 1976. In 1965, Snead won the tournament for a tour-record eighth time in his career. The win made Snead the PGA Tour’s older winner at age 52. During that 16-year run at Sedgefield, nine major champions combined to win 11 of the tournaments — Snead, George Archer, Julius Boros, Billy Casper, Bob Charles, Al Geiberger, Gene Littler, Gary Player, and Tom Weiskopf. For a number of years, the tournament served as the lead-up to the Masters the following week.  (Photo: Morning Read )

Sedgefield Country Club — Hole No. 16
One of the defining characteristics of Sedgefield Country Club is the small, undulating greens averaging 6,500 square feet that help give the course its bite.  (Photo: McConnell Golf)
