Aldeen was ranked the best municipal course in Illinois by Golf Digest in 2009 and rated 4-1/2 stars by 2008 Golf Digest Magazine's Places to Play guidebook. GOLF Magazine calls it one of the Thrifty Fifty (top 50 courses in the country under $50). Aldeen is ranked #23. The Aldeen Golf Club has set a new standard for upscale public golf in northern Illinois. Aldeen Golf Club invites you to experience eighteen championship holes with expertly manicured greens, tees and fairways, challenging water hazards on 12 of 18 holes, and 62 sand bunkers including three Dick Nugent-designed "beach bunkers." Keith Creek winds through the front nine past our signature 8th hole with its island green and replica of the Swilcan Bridge at St. Andrews. Subtle elevation changes, along with mogul filled roughs and numerous trees, provide a straightforward, challenging, and beautiful test of golf.
