ODN Item of the Week: The Norwester and Scioto Country Club

The September 1919 issue of the Norwester includes a feature article on the newly-opened Scioto Country Club. Located at the intersection of Riverside Drive and Lane Avenue in Upper Arlington, the Club was originally accessible by two of the city’s trolley lines.

Designed as a community and recreation hub, the Club is still going strong today. Its golf course is still regarded as one of the best in the country, and was the first 18-hole course in central Ohio. Not only have they hosted many major tournaments over the years, but it’s also the course where golf legend Jack Nicklaus learned to play!
