Mid - Iron Golf Club, is a Public, 9 hole golf course located in Lemont, Illinois, approximately 25 miles southwest of downtown Chicago.
Mid - Iron Golf Club first opened for play in 1988. The course was designed by Buzz Diddier.
The course sits on rolling terrain. Water hazards come into play on four of the nine holes.
This executive course has six par-3 and no par-5 holes for a total par of 30 at a length of 1,597 yards. There is only one set of tees, but there is an alternate tee box on the 3rd hole (a 260 yard par-4) that drops length of that hole to 220 yards and the overall length to 1,557 yards.
The course is named “Mid-Iron” for a reson, you’ll be hitting with your middle irons quite often. The fairways are mostly straight, with the exception of the #4 (a 266 yard par-4) which doglegs left before the green. #4 is the longest hole on the course. The par-3 holes range from 115 yards to 170 yards.
Water touches four of the holes, but you’ll only need to carry over the water if you play from the longer tee box on the 3rd hole. There are no bunkers on the course, though it looked like there could have been at some time. The greens are generally large and flat; nothing overly complicated or challenging.
Blue tees: par-30, 1,597 yards
Red tees: par-31, 1,557 yards

What makes this course great is that you cannot beat it for young kids learning the game. Or anyone learning how to play. It is reasonably priced and the condition of the fairways and greens is outstanding. Rarely do you find a 9-hole with fairways this good.
