Detailed description of Sportsmans Country Club - Nine Hole

Sportsmans Country Club is a Public 27 hole golf facility located in Northbrook, Illinois. Sportsman has two courses, The Eighteen Hole Course and The Nine Hole Course.

Sportsman's Country Club opened in 1931 and was designed and built by Edward Dearie Jr. Dearie had been head construction foreman for Donald Ross.

You can see the Ross influence in many of Dearie's holes at Sportsman's.

Sportsman's Country Club was privately owned, though still open to the public, for most of its history, until it was sold to a developer in the late 1970s. In an outstanding display of civic pride and effort, citizens of Northbrook voted to allow the Park District to buy the course. Today, all 215 acres are proudly owned and operated by the Northbrook Park District!

Sportsman's classic roots continue with the new redesign by Jacobson Golf Course Design of Libertyville. Owner Rick Jacobson and lead designer Doug Myslinski followed the groundwork laid by Dearie, and carefully re-worked Sportsman's green surfaces, bunkers, and fairway contours to modernize the course for todays game while paying homage to the classic roots of this fine golf course.

In addition to reshaping Sportsman's bunkers in more of a Donald Ross style, some of the bunkers were realigned and repositioned to accommodate today's golfers.

Par for The Nine Hole Course at Sportsman is 35. From the back tees the course plays to 3,010 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 2,661 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 5, a par-5 that plays to 522 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 8, a par-3 that plays to 139 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 5, the 522 yard par-5 challenge is the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at The Nine Hole Course at Sportsman is # 8, a 139 yard par-3.
