I had the priveledge to play this course as a guest and was in golf heaven. Great course, very challenging and superbly maintained. The staff was top notch! Truly a terrific course to play.

Private club courses dating from the 1920's are precious gems. They are perhaps underappreciated in Chicagoland because the area has so many of them.
