Recently, Eustis Chair provided 75 Claremont stacking chairs and 2 transporters to The Country Club at Pepper Pike. These chairs will assist in their current 300-chair replacement project.
About The Club
Founded in 1889, The Country Club is a family-orientated club with excellent facilities and first-class service. Eustis is honored that our chairs will be at a place that plays such an important part in Cleveland’s history as well as the history of golf.
Haskell and The Modern Golf Ball
One of the club’s members, Coburn Haskell, invented the first rubber-cored, rubber-wound ball—widely regarded as the first modern golf ball. The first experiments with this new rubber-containing ball were carried out at The Country Club by several of the members. Eventually, Haskell patented the balls were in 1899 and marketed them commercially.
The invention of the Haskell ball revolutionized golf and, in time, made many of the small, early golf courses in the countryside obsolete. Rumor has it Walter Travis first used this ball in an important championship when he won the British Amateur Championship in 1904.
The Country Club’s New Design
As the game of golf grew and improved, so did The Country Club at Pepper Pike. In 1928, the club moved to its current location. Prominent Cleveland architect Philip L. Small designed the new clubhouse. William Flynn, a famous golf course architect and member of “Philadelphia School of Design”, designed the golf course. The new clubhouse opened in 1930. In 1935, The Country Club’s still youthful course was the scene of the National Amateur Tournament.
The Claremont chair by Eustis Chair is perfectly matched for The Country Club. This beautiful hardwood chair looks great in any club room. And with its ability to stack 6-8 chairs high and save tons of storage space, the Claremont is functional as well as elegant.
