ARCHITECT – The Country Club of Waterbury was originally founded in 1899 with a nine hole course constructed by Waterbury, Conn. Native Arthur Fenn. In 1927, the club hired noted golf architect Donald Ross to develop a first-class 18-hole layout on a combination of existing and newly acquired land. The new Ross course opened for play on Saturday, September 15, 1928, and has become a cornerstone for the tradition of this club.
