Blue Mound Golf & Country Club is a country club located in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA. The golf course was designed by noted course architect Seth Raynor. The club hosted the PGA Championship in 1933, won by Gene Sarazen, 5 and 4, over Willie Goggin. It was Sarazen's third and final PGA Championship win. He earned $1,000 for the victory.

The course also hosted the 1940 Women's Western Open where Babe Zaharias defeated Mrs. Russell Mann by a score of 5 and 4.[1]

In the late 1990s, the course was restored to its original glory by Tom Doak's Renaissance Design under the supervision of architect Bruce Hepner.

Blue Mound hosted the 2010 Western Junior, won by Patrick Rogers. It was also the alternating course for the first two rounds of the 2011 U.S. Amateur, along with Erin Hills, site of the 2017 U.S. Open.
