The layouts are tree lined over a rolling terrain, with deeply sculpted sand bunkers and imposing water hazards that will challenge the shot making abilities of all levels of players. Recognized as the "home of the shotgun start", Gleneagles has become the premier property for hosting tournaments in the Chicago area.
