This country club goes back to 1958. It hosted hundreds of fairly major events over the years, if not necessarily major tournaments. I believe it was considered a fairly high-end course for its time, which ended in 2012. I will say the reviews at the end of its life were not great. I found dozens of articles on events and banquets and such being held here from the 60's through the 90's.
There is a banquet hall called Elly's and a restaurant called Eljoe's Restaurant and Bar adjacent to the club. I will consider these part of the overall facility. I am not sure if they were owned and operated by the club itself. As of 2023, the the entire complex sits empty and for sale. I am diligently trying to get some photos of the interior of the golf course as it is blocked off at this time.
Here is the information from Golf Course Ranking, a great site.
Romeo Golf Course & Country Club is a public 36 hole golf facility located in Washington, Michigan. The course has two regulation eighteen holes courses. They are The North Course and The South Course. The South Course opened for play in 1994. The South Course was designed by Joseph Karam.
The South Course is the more challenging of the two Romeo Golf Courses because of its tight fairways and numerous trees that can affect your shots. The greens are large and fast, and lakes and streams come into play on many holes.
The North Course is the older of the two courses and first opened for play in 1958. The North Course is the more forgiving of the two courses because the fairways are open, and its small greens are medium speed. The terrain on both courses is flat and easy to walk. Both of these courses are very scenic, having been built through wooded areas.
