Chicago golf course review

Highlands of Elgin - Chicago Golf Course

Highlands of Elgin features a Prairie style clubhouse, an 18 hole championship course, and a practice facility for every aspect of a players game. The course has been through some exciting development with a new quarry nine. The new nine reclaims an old stone quarry, and is routed to take maximum advantage of the unique and dramatic landscape that was left behind, including a twelve acre quarry lake. The original nine holes flow over beautiful rolling terrain, creating a diverse collection of holes. The variety of design in this layout will provide golfers with an adventure of unique golf holes in a beautiful setting.

The Highlands is a links style course with wide fairways, long natural prairie grasses, numerous bunkers, and large putting surfaces. in total, 90 sand bunkers come into play greenside, and in the middle or sides near the fairway landing zones, and ten holes feature water hazards in the form of lakes off to the sides of the fairways. The front of the large sloping greens are not well guarded by bunkering so golfers can take advantage of bump and run approaches on may holes.
