Where2Golf says: 

Medinah Country Club offers its members and their guests 54 holes of excellent quality golf.

The revered No. 3 layout is widely recognised as a golf course that ranks alongside the world's best. It is one of the USA's most admired tree-lined parkland layouts, with an outstanding array of excellently crafted and challenging holes. Golf courses don't get any better than this.

Tom Bendelow originally designed the No.3 course back in the late 1920s; it was updated by Rees Jones in 2003. Bendelow also designed the No.1 course, which is regarded as another Illinois gem. However, Medinah is a private club, with its courses generally playable only by members and their guests.

Did you know?

Medinah's No.3 course has hosted many top level national championships and professional tour events, including the 2012 Ryder Cup matches, US Opens, PGA Championships and several Western Opens. For more details see Major Golf Tournaments at Medinah CC.
Medinah's No.3 course, originally designed for Medinah’s ladies, was completed in 1928. The original Tom Bendelow layout only lasted three years before a major redesign took place in the early 1930s. | While the golf courses were being constructed, Richard Schmid was hired to design the clubhouse. Schmid had a flair for blending the classic lines of Byzantine, Oriental, Louis XIV and Italian architecture characteristic of many Masonic structures. His design gave Medinah’s clubhouse the taste, style and elegance still evident today.
