Chicago Golf Courses

Chicago Golf

The "Windy City" offers golfers plenty of calm days to enjoy an array of golf courses designed by the world's best designers. From Midway to O'Hare, Chicago tee time seekers can choose from links style courses on the shores of Lake Michigan, parkland tracks lined by massive oak trees, prairie style courses chock full of native grasses and a few properties that seamlessly blend all of these elements together. Throw in pristine, bent grass greens and the "Second City" quickly jumps to the top of the list of metro areas with amazing options for discount tee times. And when Chicago area golfers resign to a few moments away from the course, they can head out to North Avenue Beach, take a picture at Cloud Gate (aka The Bean), watch the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field or see for miles from the Willis Tower Observation Deck.
