This club consists of two eighteen hole courses that are a miracle of enlightened politics, environmental engineering and the imagination of Dick Nugent. The story behind the courses involves capping a fourteen-year-old landfill with two feet of solid clay. Add two public courses to the 450-acre space, a clubhouse, a golf academy, a first-class practice facility, and landmarks from Chicago history to play beside, and let her rip. The two courses located at the club are the Port and the Starboard. Both courses are links-style. There is water that comes into play and many very deep sand bunkers in keeping with the links tradition. "GOLFWEEK" selected the Port Course 100th among "America's 100 Best Modern Courses" for 1999. The signature hole is #15 on the Port Course, a 216-yard, par 3, which is in the shape of an anchor. The Starboard has two par 3 holes in which you hit over water. The nine hole rates are available after 4 PM. The John Jacobs Golf Academy is located at the club, for additional information call the pro shop.

Great conditions - shot makers course., Jul 26, 2006
from NY NJ PA
|I just played the Starboard course with my friend. The conditions were excellent. Greens were slick and well protected by a blanket of sand bunkers. Wind plays a major factor in every shot. The wind coupled with the well placed fairway bunkers (and the smart use of the water on the par 3s) provides golfers with the fun of double checking their club selection. Good luck!|
