Chicago Golf Course Review

Old Orchard Golf Club

Old Orchard is a traditional 4-star (Golf Digest Places to Play) championship course designed by Al Wickersham in 1952 with periodic updates, and is recognized as a tight and challenging layout with consistently high quality conditioning and service. Golfers will encounter many parallel fairways along a tight and fairly level terrain that features well maintained landscaping.

Most of the holes feature ample landing areas, but mature hardwoods, pines and willows - along with some fairway and greenside mounding can make this a challenging experience. There are some interesting doglegs, and some beautiful par threes, including the two featured in the photos below, which demand carries over water hazards. The medium to large size green complexes are slightly raised creating a back to front slope, but are only mildly undulating.

Water is in play on 11 holes - with some precise placements necessary off the tee or on the second shot, as golfers attempt to set their approaches up for carries over these hazards, while maintaining positioning away from the tree lines. Yardage guide booklets with hole diagrams are standard on all carts, providing the necessary info to play each hole efficiently. Yardage blocks are also positioned on the fairways - though the color coding is not the usual standard...on this course the 200 marker is red, 150 is yellow and 100 is white.
