Prairie Landing Golf Club
With meticulously maintained greens and fairways, Prairie Landing is designed with the player in mind. From wide open par 5’s to narrow par 3’s, the course is a fair challenge with a rewarding landscape. Peppered with various wetlands, mounds, and bunkers, Prairie Landing is no walk in the park. The alluring landscape could be considered a hazard itself. Prairie Landing Golf Course is a prairie links style 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. The course has been rated 4.5 Stars by Golf Digest for “Best Places to Play”, one of only 25 Illinois courses to receive such a rating. The Prairie Landing Practice Center, arguably the finest of its kind in the Chicago area, includes grass and artificial tees, two putting greens, chipping area, and two regulation par fours.
Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
"LOVED LOVED LOVED IT! Even though I grew up with a family of avid golfers, my son was a bit young and had had no experience with golf prior to the camp. Everyone made him feel welcomed and was eager to teach him not just golf but safety! At the end of each day, he was able to tell me exactly what they had worked on and what he had learned. I couldn't thank the staff enough for the patience they had shown him and the motivation to keep learning. Thank you!"
