The Story of The Governors Club
In 1799, Colonel John Winstead and family first took possession of the rich farmland, which would for the next two centuries be home to them and their descendants.  Here Winstead built a two-story log home, which they lived in until 1854 when a son, John M. Winstead, constructed the elegant, tall-pillared home, which is known today as
Pleasant Hill Mansion. 

The homesteads and over 600 acres remained in the family until 1997, when it was purchased for development of The Governors Club.  Pleasant Hill and the Winstead Log Cabins have been lovingly preserved and both the rustic cabins and the antebellum mansion serve as a stately backdrop for the magnificent Governors Club golf course. 

The Arnold Palmer designed championship course follows the property’s natural rolling hills, and is as challenging as it is beautiful.  Palmer has utilized the property’s historic stonewalls, spring-fed creeks, and scenic waterfalls to create
breathtaking views at every turn. 

Today, The Governors Club welcomes a new generation to celebrate a unique golf experience surrounded by a quiet elegance that only time can endow.
