Detailed description of Golf Club Of Illinois

Golf Club of Illinois is a Public 18 hole golf course located in Algonquin, Illinois.

Golf Club of Illinois first opened for play in 1987. The course was designed by Dick Nugent.

Par for the course is 71. From the back tees the course plays to 7,041 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,645 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 11, a par-5 that plays to 678 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 4, a par-3 that plays to 175 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 11, the 678 yard par-5 challenge is the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 4, the 175 yard par-3.

The Golf Club of Illinois is a classic links-style course featuring high fescue grasses, treacherous sand bunkers, and strategically placed mounds on each hole. The course has no trees in play, plus plenty of barren-land winds and only 3 holes involving water.

In 1990, the Golf Club of Illinois hosted the Illinois Open Championship which was won by Gary Pinns, the only player to break par in the tournament. This is a tough course.

This is not a destination spot per se, which is why I note not vacation worthy; however, given I played on 12/16 in Chicago and perhaps the last decent day of the year, it did take on that blustery links quality that a trip to Scotland (or New Zealand) puts into play. Not knowing the course, I was not prepared for the hidden challenges with some of the deceptive deep bunkers that armed every green, greens that were somewhat calloused by the cold, but nonetheless true in their rolls. Don't know what time a mid-summer's round would play to on a Sunday, but given the spare numbers of brave souls who worked in a round a week before Christmas, this unrushed outing was especially pleasing to the pace as it clocked in at 3 hrs. 20 mins.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

Links style course with some interesting holes. Layout was pretty good and conditions were better than average. A little overpriced in my opinion. There are a lot of homes along some holes on this course. Gets to feel a little tight. Overall a good experience. I would play it again, just keep an eye out for some discounts.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
