The County Club of Buffalo built the clubhouse on this site in 1901. The 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, and a polo field were added in 1902. George Cary was the local architect and also built the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society, a National Historic Landmark. In 1910, A.L. Pfitzner, a pilot from Curtiss, made the first airplane flight in Western New York from the Bailey Avenue site. The C.C.B. was host to the 1912 U.S. Open won by John J. McDermott with a score of 283. The city purchased the club in 1925 for $800,000.00.The site was renamed Grover Cleveland Park to honor the former Mayor of Buffalo, Governor of New York State and President of the United States Of America. The County of Erie now owns and operates the challenging 18-Hole golf course.
Grover Cleveland Golf Course was designed to put a premium on accuracy not distance. The course plays over 5600 yards with par being 34-35-69. The smaller, well bunkered greens reward those with a pinpoint iron game. In honor of the 100th year anniversary of the golf course, the Erie County Parks Department has initiated a county wide amateur golf championships.
