Detailed description of Rolling Green Country Club

Rolling Green Country Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Arlington Heights, Illinois.

The Rolling Green Country Club golf course was preceded by a 9-hole course built by Dr. Oughton in 1923. Amazingly he built a nine-hole course (on that segment of the farm lying east of Rand Road which is now Old Orchard) in what was probably record time - eighteen working days! The doctor later confessed that he and his loyal friend "Wheels (H.B. Wheel Clock), who engineered and surveyed the drainage, worked together from 5a.m. to midnight." He hypnotized the farmers in the area into supplying free labor and horse teams for grading with the assurance of doubling the value of their land when the course was completed.

The good doctor sold the course and farm land on which it was located. The buyers started what we know today as The Rolling Green Country Club. The 18-hole course was built in 1925. The course was designed by William H. Diddel. The Rolling Green Country Club golf course measures 6,401 yards from the longest tees and plays to a pa-72. The course rating is 71.7 with a slope rating of 129.

Fun Course. Great greens.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area
