The Aronimink Golf Club is one of America’s early golf clubs and has provided the sport with many famous American golfers including John Shippen and Johnny McDermott. Aronimink was one of four founding members of the Gold Association of Philadelphia, established in 1897. The club, itself, was originally called the Belmont Golf Association but its name soon changed to Aronimink Country Club in 1900 only to finally become the Aronimink Golf Club in 1920. Its fairways were designed by the famous golf architect, David Ross, and the course is considered to be some of his best work. The golf course, once owning this beautiful pitcher, has hosted several PGA Championships and remains a major American golf course today.
