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.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
