Detailed description of Ivanhoe Club

Ivanhoe Golf Club is a Private, 27 hole golf facility located in Ivanhoe, Illinois. Ivanhoe Golf Club has three 9-hole golf courses. These courses can be combined in pairs to form three different 18 hole course challenges. The nine-hole courses are The Forest Course, The Prairie Course, and The Marsh Course.

Previously located at another location, the Ivanhoe Golf Club found the Smith Estate in 1985. The estate at that time was a 380-acre undeveloped piece of land with a 9-hole golf course. It was the perfect setting for what was to become Ivanhoe Golf Club as we know it today.

The new course opened in 1991. The course was designed by Dick Nugent.

In 2003, Ivanhoe Club began $4.5 million renovation of the courses by Arthur Hills. The re-creation, resulting in 3 distinct nine holes of golf; Forest, Prairie and Marsh, recognized as one of the Top 25 Championship Courses in Illinois and was coined the "Rebirth of a Champion".

The rolling terrain of the Forest Nine marks the highest topographic point in Lake County and features tight, Oak and Hickory tree lined fairways, offering the stiffest test of golf. Its two landmark 80-foot high windmills with the distinctive Ivanhoe logo can be seen for miles around.

The Prairie Nine, with its grassy hillocks and beautiful waves of native Prairie grass, offer golfers a traditional links style challenge. Deep greenside bunkers, test abilities to their limits, but are balanced by the profusion of wildflowers that frame each hole like a Picasso painting.

The Marsh Nine embraces wetland wildlife; Herons, Red-winged Blackbirds, Terns and Turtles can be seen at close distance. The nine closes with a spectacular Par Four hole that features an elevated tee over Lake Ivanhoe, requiring a long, accurate shot to an island fairway, followed by a second shot over water to a heavily guarded green. Golf Magazine has named this, and Ivanhoe Club's Forest Hole number 9, two of the prettiest finishing holes in golf.

Ivanhoe offers a thoughtfully developed facility to accommodate play at any level. Five sets of tees offer a variety of options. Course lengths measure from 5,700 yards from the silver tees to just over 7,200 yards from the gold tees.
