Visit the locker room at Merion Golf Club, one of the coolest places in golf

Merion’s dressing room has a classic look.

History is everywhere at the Merion Golf Club, especially in the locker rooms. The two-story space in the stone pavilion features hundreds of lockers to accommodate its members and guests, all in a classic atmosphere.

Rows of mint green lockers line the room’s exterior, while raised ceilings with windows above allow light to filter into the room. Calling it celestial might be a bit of a stretch, but there is something about the space that feels sacred.

Ahead of this year’s Curtis Cup, we took a step inside Merion to experience all it has to offer. Check out below for a look at one of the coolest places in golf.

Stairs lead to the second floor cloakroom. After being greeted by a locker room attendant, you enter this open space with high ceilings.

The first locker alcove has a small window at the far end overlooking the practice green and, beyond, the 18th green. Not a bad place to change shoes after the tour.

Historic club artifacts adorn the poles separating the lockers.

The lockers aren’t flashy, but their age is part of the charm.

Merion’s dressing room comprises two floors, with an opening in the middle to look down to the ground floor below.

A shower after the round is a must, and towels are provided in neatly stacked pyramids.
