Sedgefield Country Club is a country club in the eastern United States, located in Greensboro, North Carolina, southwest of the city center. Established in 1925, it is primarily known for its golf course and the PGA Tour event it has held since 2008: the Wyndham Championship, formerly the Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic, and the Greater Greensboro Open (GGO), it also hosted the tournament from 1938 to 1976 (alternating some years with Starmount Country Club).

The course was designed by Donald Ross and opened for play in 1926, it is currently the only Ross-designed course hosting a regular event on the PGA Tour. A second 18-hole course, originally Cardinal Golf and Country Club and opened in 1975, was renovated by Pete Dye in 2007.
