Olympia Fields Country Club (North course)

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1915

Olympia Fields Country Club, located just south of Chicago, is home to two championship layouts, the North and South courses. As a private club, the courses are generally playable only by members and their invited guests.

The North, formerly the club's No.4 course, is one of the top-rated and finest championship layouts in Illinois. This excellent tree-lined parkland course contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game. The South course was formerly the club's No.1 layout, designed in 1915 by Tom Bendelow.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
