About The Concession Golf Club
The Concession Golf Club was founded to commemorate the extraordinary gesture of sportsmanship that Jack Nicklaus made at the 1969 Ryder Cup at Royal Birkdale when he conceded a two-foot putt to Britain's Tony Jacklin to halve their match, which resulted in the first-ever tie in the history of the matches. The moment became known as "the concession." Jacklin collaborated with Nicklaus on the course design and in 2006 the club was voted by Golf Digest as the Best New Private Course in the U.S.
