Kenwood Country Club

Cincinnati OH

Men from the Cincinnati Club formed plans in 1929 for this new club opened in 1932 with an English Tudor clubhouse. In 1967, the first of three “Hope House” Exhibition Tournaments was held at Kenwood, hosting golfers like Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, and celebrities Perry Como and Bob Hope. Anderson, with architects from Chicago, started renovations in 1998 of the Ballroom, Lobby into a two-story Grand Foyer and design of expansion spaces including the Mixed Grille. In keeping with the original character, the expansion incorporated English antiques and reproductions, a giant stone fireplace, rich woods, and adding gabled arched windows for natural light to the architecture with arched beams doubling as light fixtures into the Mixed Grill’s design.
