Chicago Golf Course Review

05-Highland Park Golf Club

Highland Park Golf Club

Highland Park Country Club located 20 miles north of Chicago, is a traditional Ted Lockie design that was originally a private course. The clubhouse features some of the best locker room facilities in the state, with spacious changing areas, multiple showers and wooden lockers. There is a pro shop and renovation plans - to be completed in the fall of 2005, include a new restaurant/lounge. Banquet/outing facilities are on property, and currently the food options are provided through an outdoor snack area and grill.

The golf course is a player friendly layout, though water hazards are quite formidable on several holes. Mature trees line most of the fairways, and though relatively flat in topography, there are a few holes that present elevation changes from tee to green. Some of the best and most challenging holes are the par threes, with three of the four presenting ponds that rest perilously close to the green complexes. Number eleven is especially demanding for a # 12 handicap, as a creek runs along the left and a lake runs the length of the hole, squeezing the playing surface along the right.

Three sets of tees play to distances measuring 6475, 6019 and 4909 yards with slopes ranging from 128 to 116. There is a grass range located a few hundred yards from the clubhouse, and a putting a chipping green are close by. On course golfers will find sprinkler heads measured to the center of the green, yardage blocks posted at 100, 150 and 200 yards, plus 150 yard stakes that double as directional devices on all par fours and fives.

On our August 2005 visit the bent grass fairways and greens, which are mildly undulating and range from small to large in diameter, were in great shape. Landing areas are frequently bordered by trees and dotted with bunkers, with over 50 sand traps located along the fairways or greenside. Natural areas come into play often, and provide sanctuary for the native wildlife as well.

Highland Park is an interesting layout, and is a favorite among locals. The new facilities being constructed will make an experience here even more attractive.
