Club History

In 1913 the club was born out of a split in the membership of the exclusive Euclid Golf Club, which was located on property owned by John D. Rockefeller at the top of Cedar Hill. Euclid members, J.B. Zerbe and Judge Dwane E. Tilden approached O.P. and M.J. Van Sweringen seeking to build a golf course and clubhouse in the Village of Shaker Heights. Both of the Van Sweringen brothers became founding members and served on the original House Committee.

Shaker Fun Fair Event Review
"Thank you for an awesome event - I heard from so many members who were impressed and had a great time."
- Dominic Valentino, Member Since 2018
Ralph & I love having dinner at the bar on Friday nights with Stevie for a ridiculously easy night. No reservation is needed, although the spots fill up quickly! Always someone to talk to & always a delicious meal.

We have been members of the club since 2006. We love the beautiful neighborhood setting and the gem of a golf course designed by Donald Ross. Being an avid golfer, I appreciate that the course is very challenging and always in great shape, plus it is one you can play over and over and never get tired of. Our kids (now teenagers) have grown up in the club and over the years have enjoyed the kids' camps, junior golf, and hanging out at the swimming pool with their friends. The family-oriented atmosphere is fun, warm, and inviting and we've developed many close relationships throughout the years. The facilities are very nice with various indoor and outdoor dining options, a fitness center, tennis and paddle courts, and who doesn't like the outdoor bar!

Since joining Shaker Heights Country club in 2003, I have found it to be a key part of my life. Rarely will you have a chance to make new great friends after retirement, but that's just what the Club has given me while playing golf at one of the finest courses in Ohio. My kids and grandkids also use the golf, tennis, and swimming facilities in summer. All these facilities are family-oriented and the staff is always friendly and welcoming. My wife and I go for dinner or use the bar frequently, and are always pleased with the quality of service we receive. It's become our home away from home.

This summer my goal was to "throw myself out there" and play golf. I'm a school teacher in Cleveland Heights, so I started with the lessons in May on Wednesday nights. Then I joined the Ladies of Shaker on Wednesday nights in June and July. The new format was really fun and challenged us to "graduate" each week. Through this group, I have met so many new golfers who have become friends. We eat dinner after the lessons and it has been so much fun socially as well! One of these friends encouraged me to play 9-holes on Tuesday mornings. I was pretty nervous the first week, since this was a big jump for me as a golfer - counting every stroke and keeping score has at times been frustrating to say the least. 🥺 This week I had a lesson with Debi and also attended her Saturday morning golf clinic, which was great. Our group was much smaller and we got a lot more one-on-one attention. I recruited two friends at the clinic(also from the Ladies of Shaker) to play with the 9-holers this Tuesday morning. They told me they have never played 9-holes at Shaker and were a bit hesitant. I reassured them, as I was reassured when my friend recruited me, that we could have Jason set us up to play together to ease their anxiety. Overall, I have been playing a lot of golf weekly including: lessons, playing with the 9-holers, my husband, and various family members. We also played in the Nine & Dine in July. I have enjoyed meeting new golfers and working on my game this summer. I would like to thank everyone for being so welcoming, especially the golf pros and regular golfers - for all of your kind words of encouragement and support.  As a new golfer, this has made all the difference! ⛳️
