Old Country Club

Old Country Club – Meridian, MS

Photographer's note:
This old Country Club is located just north of Meridian, Mississippi.

According to the present owner – who has had the property since the course closed – the club house was built in 1917, around the same time that the course opened. It remained open until sometime during World War II when the lack of people playing golf forced it to shut down. The property was purchased, and has been privately held, since 1946. Today it’s used for storage and as a shed for equipment.

I know nothing more about this place than what he wrote. Maybe one of you can tell us more.

I really can't add to this, but I remember driving past with my parents, and Daddy talking about its past as a country club.
