The Marlborough Country Club building in Marlborough, Massachusetts.

Marlborough Country Club is a private country club open to the public on Mondays and Tuesdays located in Marlborough, Massachusetts, United States. The club formally opened on June 3, 1922. The feature event was a four-ball best-ball match in which Francis Ouimet and his partner Larry Paton defeated Ed Childs and Parker Schofield. Ouimet played a round in 78.[1]

The current back nine at Marlborough was designed by Wayne E. Stiles in 1921. Other courses designed by Stiles include Woodland, Haverhill, Nashua, Laconia, Marshfield, Duxbury Yacht Club, Taconic Country Clubs, as well as the remodeled Wellesley, Oak Hill, Woods Hole, Thorny Lea, and Pittsfield Country Clubs. Three holes at Marlborough Country Club were selected to a list of "The Most Outstanding 18 Holes" in the region by professionals in the area in 1992. They selected the 12th, 14th, and 16th holes. Especially the 16th hole because it is the hardest hole on the back nine. The front nine was designed by the team of Geoffrey Cornish and William G. Robinson in 1968.

Marlborough Country Club was host of Senior PGA Tour Event The Marlborough Classic from 1981-1983. Bob Goalby won the event in 1981, with Arnold Palmer winning in 1982 and Don January winning in 1983. The event has since changed locations to the Nashawtuc Country Club in Concord, Massachusetts and is now called Bank of America Championship.

The current Marlborough Country Club champion (2013) is Jason Short of Marlborough, Massachusetts.[2]
