Welcome To Vesper-Country Club
Vesper-Country Club sits on Tyngs Island in the midst of the Merrimack River and was established in 1875 as Vesper Boat Club. In 1894 it merged with Lowell Country Club (founded in 1892) to create Vesper-Country Club.
Vesper has hosted numerous major golf events, including four Massachusetts Open championships, several Massachusetts Amateur Championships, and the New England PGA (held in 1977 and won by the Vesper host pro at the time, Tom McGuirk). The professional course record of 65 was set by Jeff Lewis during the 1990 Massachusetts Open.
Today, Vesper’s golf course is considered one of the finest in New England. In 2008, the membership voted to completely rebuild all 18 greens to U.S.G.A. specifications and to restore the bunkers on the course. This rebuilding project was completed at the end of 2009 and overseen by architect Brian Silva, who attempted to be faithful to the original design and plans of Donald Ross. Vesper has most recently been featured as one of Golf Week Magazine's Top 100 Classic Courses in America in 2011 and again in 2012.
With beautiful views of the Merrimack River, Vesper-Country Club has continued to be the preeminent social venue for the Greater Lowell area since 1875. We specialize in providing a high level of service and hospitality to all of our events, whether they are corporate or family related.
