Best Golf Courses in Chicago, IL

Creating a list of top-rated courses in Chicago is about as difficult as hitting a driver off the deck, so before you jump into ‘Where is ___ on this list?’, know that we love too many Chicago golf courses to mention even 10% of them here. Chicago and its surrounding suburbs (North, Northwest, South, Southwest and West) are truly unique in their collective offering of world-class tracks. With a mix of parkland, links and resort courses, one could play 36 holes every day during the summer and never encounter the same golf course twice. And while each layout differs considerably from the next one, the best courses in Chicago are perfectly consistent in their offering of perfect bentgrass greens, aesthetically pleasing prairie grasses and stately Oaks.
