There are so many iconic courses in the area, we should talk about them. Maybe even play them when it stops Polar Vortexing in April.
I’ve golfed here most my life and never knew the gem that is the Skokie Country Club, I mostly stayed a bit more north but last year I had a chance play it and wow. If you have the chance, do it.
On the more public side of things I really like Foster’s Shepard’s Crook up by Zion, GolfNow usually has some good deals for it which doesn’t hurt but the course always seems to be in decent shape and is a lot of fun to play, I like it better than neighboring Thunderhawk tbh.
Any hidden gems that we need to check out?
On a side note: I was researching the Chicago Golf Club and it mentions its early roots in Lake Forest, I assume it’s covered with houses now but does anyone know where that original track was?
