Wayne Stiles and John Van Kleek of Boston, Mass. designed the original Starmount Forest golf course and it was completed with consultation from Perry Maxwell. The course formally opened for play on August 1, 1930. The course was renovated in 1971 with consultation from George Cobb, and totally rebuilt in 1999 by Architect, Lester George. During our seventy-five plus years of existence, Starmount Forest has hosted many professional and amateur tournaments. We are the only championship golf course in the city limits of Greensboro, North Carolina.
Starmount Forest was the inaugural host for the Greater Greensboro Open held in 1938. Sam Snead won that event at the ripe age of 24. Starmount Forest continued its involvement with the GGO (now formally known as the Wyndham Championship) until 1960. Starmount Forest hosted the 1947 Women's U.S. Open. Betty Jameson won with a score of 295, marking the first female golfer to score below 300 in a 72~hole tournament. Recently, Starmount Forest hosted the 2001 N.C. Senior Amateur Championship, the 2004 N.C. Mid-Am Championship, the 2004 Southern Conference Women's Golf Championships, and the 2007 N.C. Amateur Championship.
The course covers 155 acres and offers a tremendous test for the most avid golfer. Four tees are available for play: Black, White, Blue and Green.
Starmount Forest offers a complete Golf Professional Shop, club storage, lockers, individual and family range memberships, lessons and unlimited golf cart access.
The Golf Staff, headed by PGA Professional Bill Hall, is available six days a week for both private and group instruction. Programs for Women and Junior Golfers are available throughout the season, providing everyone an opportunity to try their hand at the "game of golf". Starmount Forest also features various tournaments from February to late October such as Opening/Closing Breakfast Tournaments, Spring and Fall Member/Member, Member/Guest Invitational, Club Championship, Ryder Cup and Couples Mixers.
