The Sahalee Country Club was incorporated in September of 1967. August 9, 1969, was opening day for the golf course, although the clubhouse was not completed until January of 1970. The first members of the club joined as partners and their investment included the golf club membership as well as a fairway lot. By opening day, Sahalee had 500 members. Although you no longer have to join the Sahalee Country Club in order to purchase a home in Sahalee, many residents enjoy membership in both communities.
Since its incorporation in 1967, through boom and bust times, the Sahalee neighborhood and Sahalee Country Club have flourished. The Sahalee Country Club hosted the 1998 PGA Championship, the 2002 World Golf Championship-NEC Invitational, and the 2010 U.S. Senior Open.
