THIS EDITION OF ZIEHM & SPEARS looks entirely at the recent announcement by the Medinah Country Club that will renovate it’s Course #3 championship venue.

The $18.5 million dollar renovation is likely the largest one in recent years in the Chicago area.

But could be the most significant one as well, looking forward to major championship in the Chicago area. Even beyond the 2026 Presidents Cup that is already scheduled at the club.

CLICK HERE to hear the latest edition of Ziehm and Spears Podcast Series 2021- Volume 36, with discussion on the Medinah Course 3 renovation. By Australian firm OCM, headed up by 2006 U.S. Open Champion Geoff Ogilvy, and architects Mike Cocking and Ashley Mead.

Thanks for listening and Merry Christmas from Len and Rory.
