The Venue

Starmount Forest Country Club

The first round was played at Starmount Forest on August 1, 1930. Since then, the course has hosted the United States Women’s Open, the Greater Greensboro Open, the Carolinas Open and numerous amateur championships.

The course covers 155 acres in the esteemed Starmount neighborhood, located just a couple miles from downtown Greensboro and less than 10 minutes from Greensboro’s PTI Airport and all major highways.

Don’t let location fool you… this course might be built close to downtown, but it has some hills. By no means is Starmount Forest a flat track.

And with the club’s extensive history, today the course’s reputation is built on its Champion BermudaGrass greens. One would be challenged to find a truer putting surface. Starmount Forest was one of the first in the region to switch from bent grass to Bermuda. And today, that’s what members and guests rave about when discussing their rounds at Starmount Forest.

Buck and Polly Campbell

Glenn H. ‘Buck’ Campbell was born and raised in Greensboro. He attended Greensboro schools and served in the Marine Corps in WWII. Buck and Carey A. ‘Polly’ Campbell were married in 1948. In 1957, Buck was invited by his good friend Thomas McKnight to join Summit Rotary as its first non-charter member.

Through their involvement with Rotary, Buck and Polly developed many wonderful friendships and traveled the world over. Buck takes great pride in over 60 years of perfect attendance.

Buck and Polly’s generous support for Summit Rotary’s many charitable causes has enabled us to provide college scholarships, fund youth recognition programs, combat hunger and promote literacy in our community and around the world.
