The Midwest is a hot spot for golf and Illinois is no exception. Chicago Golf Club was one of the five founding members of the USGA, in 1894, and the state of Illinois has been considered golf royalty ever since. When thinking about golf in Illinois images come to mind like Mike Ditka and Michael Jordan teeing it up or Bill Murray caddying at Indian Hill. Just about every great player from Jones to Hogan, Palmer to Nicklaus, and Woods to McIlroy have all won Illinois-based U.S. Opens, PGA Championships, Western Opens, Ryder Cups and Walker Cups. Chicago, one of the biggest cities in America also has the greatest collection of private and public courses of any city in the U.S.

Just outside of Chicago, Tom Fazio managed to transform a former military airport into a nicely contoured arena for golf, The Glen Club. What were once runways are now fairways, and towers and cargo hangars have been replaced by prairie grass and small lakes. The Glen Club is a must play, the feeling of walking off the 18th green will leave a lasting impression of a spectacular test of skill in an environment that offers an array of memorable golf holes. Almost exactly between Chicago and Milwaukee along the shores of Lake Michigan lies ThunderHawk Golf Club. Since opening in 1999, ThunderHawk Golf Club has been recognized as one of the finest public golf courses in the Midwest. This Robert Trent Jones Jr. masterpiece is a must-play for any golfer who demands the best. The city of Peoria is located in the middle of Illinois and is home to WeaverRidge Golf Club. One of Illinois' most spectacular Championship golf courses the club is masterfully designed in rolling hills and forested valleys created by Hurdzan-Fry to balance nature with design. WeaverRidge features multiple bent grass tees and fairways, fast and true greens, challenging and dramatic elevations and excellent practice facilities. Forty-two minutes inland from the Chicago shores of Lake Michigan is Prairie Landing Golf Course. A prairie links style 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., it’s peppered with various wetlands, mounds, and bunkers. Prairie Landing is no walk in the park.

A golfer’s oasis in the Midwest, Illinois has a wide range of high quality courses for you to play. Compliment this with Lake Michigan and the iconic city of Chicago and you have a great golf trip waiting for you!!
