Welcome to Maketewah Country Club

Everyone aspires to have at least a little fun and play in their life.  At Maketewah, our members have a place that lets them do just that
- play through life.

Maketewah is one of the premiere private country clubs in the Midwest. Our stately and elegant clubhouse was completed in 1930 and serves as the social center for Maketewah´s outgoing and supportive membership.

Our championship golf course was originally designed by Tom Bendelow and later redesigned and refined by Donald Ross and is rated among the very finest in the area. The beautifully manicured, tree lined layout winds through hills and valleys and features bent-grass tees, fairways and greens.  We also boast the largest number of single digit handicaps in Ohio as well as a full practice range and two bunker putting/chipping greens.

In addition to golf, Maketewah helps its members play through life in other ways thanks to our state-of-the art dining, tennis courts, Olympic-sized swimming pool and even a bowling alley.  Not to mention, we host several events each month that are perfect for socializing with fellow members.  So, no matter how you choose to play through life, we’ve got you covered.
