Illinois has a wealth of great public golf courses. Take a golfing holiday and discover the best places to golf in Illinois.

Harborside International’s quirky city golf courses were designed by Dick Nugent to bring the great Scottish tradition of seaside links golf to Chicago. This fascinating course, built on a former landfill and scoured by the winds from Lake Michigan, is often compared to the iconic public golf courses of Scotland. Minutes from Chicago’s Loop, Harborside offers two courses, Port and Starboard, a driving range and practice facility.

Set amid the rolling hills of north-western Illinois, Eagle Ridge has four golf courses. Their jewel is the multi award-winning General, an 18-hole, par 72 course with over 250 feet of elevation changes throughout.  Eagle Ridge offers a wide range of places to stay, three restaurants, a spa and fitness centre with indoor/outdoor pool, sauna and steam room.
