Lake Bluff Golf Club was established in 1968 and in its 47-year history the course has become a “must-play” destination for golfers. Located on the scenic North Shore of Chicago, the golf course is one of only a few public facilities offering private club caliber amenities.
We take pride in the conditioning and playability of the course with features such as a million dollar state-of-the art irrigation system which allows us to keep the bent grass fairways and greens in pristine condition year-round. Our facility also includes an expansive practice facility with grass tee driving range, practice putting green, and bunker, short-game area. We offer a professionally stocked Pro Shop and the facility also houses the Village Grill which serves delicious food and a wide selection of beverages.
The course measures 6,589 yards from the back tees with three additional sets of tees to accommodate the full gamut of golfers. The tree -lined fairways provide a beautiful yet challenging setting for our players, many of whom enjoy the fact it is an “easy to walk” golf course. For those who prefer to ride, we offer top-of-the-line electric golf carts. Whether you opt to walk or ride, our average pace of play per round of 4 hours is a virtually unrivaled in the area.
Every year, Lake Bluff host's the Lake County Amateur, a premier amateur golf tournament providing a wonderful opportunity for all golfers to experience competitive golf under championship conditions. We are also proud to be the home course for the 2010 and 2011 Illinois State Champion Lake Forest High School Boys golf team.
Lake Bluff Golf Club is located 45 minutes north of downtown Chicago and is only a five minute walk west from the Lake Bluff Metra Train station located on the Union Pacific North Line. Our entire staff invites you to join us and experience golf at its absolute best the next time you wish to enjoy golf for a great price, unequaled pace of play, amid the beautiful surroundings only found here at Lake Bluff Golf Club.
