was originally

the Sunningdale Golf Course located on Alexis

Road. In 1972 Anthony Fuhrman’s father, a

prominent Toledo attorney and avid golfer,

purchased the property and renamed it.

Tony Fuhrman remembers one of his first jobs

as a young boy was using a hand sickle to chop

weeds at the club. Now, 43 years later, Fuhrman

is still involved in the day-to-day operation of

the historic golf club as its owner and general


Golf was expanding in popularity in Toledo, as

well as, across the country in the 1920’s. Private

clubs, like the Inverness Club, had sprung up in

the early 1900’s, but with the exploits of Bobby

Jones and the great Walter Hagen, golf became

more appealing to the working-class.

With demand on the upswing additional pay-

for-play courses were built in the Toledo area

to meet consumer needs. The original nine

holes at Ottawa Park, the first public golf course

west of New York, was opened in 1898 and the

second nine was completed for play in 1922.

Still more courses were needed to satisfy public

demand and in 1926, Sunningdale Golf Club

opened for play.

The club survived the economic downturn and a

financial crisis of its own in 2009. It is currently

enjoying a reawakening and has renewed its

commitment to Toledo-area golfers to provide

an enjoyable round of golf for its patrons.

Like any vintage wine or piece of art, Tamaron

has survived the test of time and is committed to

continuous improvement in the future to satisfy

area golfers.
