Detailed description of Family Golf Center, Closed 2003

Family Golf Center is a public, 9-hole, par-3, golf couse located in down-town Chicago, Illinois, between North Columbus and Lake Shore Drive. The course is located in the heart of downtown Chicago, in a carved-out oasis bordered by Lake Shore Drive on the east, Wacker Drive to the north, and skyscrapers to the west and south.

Family Golf Center opened in 1994, The course was designed by Pete Dye Jr.

This par-3, nine-hole facility provides a convenient and inexpensive venue work on your short game.

Most players can play Family Golf Center with only an eight or nine iron, a wedge, and a putter. The average hole measures less than 110 yards from tee to pin, ranging in length from 57 yards to 145 yards. #9, a 142-yard par-3, features an island green.

The best views on this very urban course are at the fifth and sixth tees, which are adjacent to each other and face northwest. From there, golfers look directly at two of Chicago's most enduring landmarks and architectural treasures - the Wrigley Building and the Tribune Tower, which are both located just off of the Chicago River on Michigan Avenue.

In addition to the course, the Family Golf Center offers a driving range (with both mat and grass tees), and a short game area with two sand bunkers and pitching, chipping, and putting areas.

Family Golf Center closed in 2003. It was sitting on very valuable property!
