Club History:

Over one hundred and twenty years ago, a group of industrial leaders founded the Manufacturers' Club of

Philadelphia. The membership was made up largely of textile manufacturing executives from the area,

hence the club's unique name. The original Clubhouse was a magnificent structure erected at Broad and

Walnut Streets in the heart of Center City. As a reminder of this time, Manufacturers' original charter,

signed May 19, 1887, is displayed in today's Clubhouse located in Fort Washington.

Desiring a country club and golf course, the membership would relocate to a beautiful location in the nearby suburbs. The Board of Directors, led by then President John Fisler, appointed a committee on February 1, 1923, to secure an option to purchase Ridgewood Farm, located in Upper Dublin Township. This is where William Flynn was hired. William Flynn had space to spare when designing this course. It is said the Flynn did much of his original planning simply by sitting atop the clubhouse hill with a sketch pad in his lap, routing

the holes over the terrain spread out far below. The course that finally emerged was reportedly little

changed from what he had envisioned as he commanded the entire sweep of the tract from this aerie.
