Just over 40 minutes north of Chicago, Lake Bluff Golf Club was established in 1968 and in its 45-year history the course has become a "must-play" destination for golfers. Located on the scenic North Shore, the golf course is one of only a few public facilities offering private club caliber amenities. The course measures 6,589 yards from the back tees with three additional sets of tees to accommodate the full gamut of golfers. Tree-lined fairways provide a beautiful yet challenging setting for all players, many of whom enjoy the fact it is an "easy to walk" golf course. For those who prefer to ride, top-of-the-line electric golf carts are available. Whether an individual opts to walk or ride, an average pace of play per round of 4 hours is a virtually unrivaled in the area. In 2014, the club will be celebrating the 43rd year as host of the Lake County Amateur, a premier amateur golf tournament providing a wonderful opportunity for all golfers to experience competitive golf under championship conditions. Lake Bluff Golf Club is also proud to be the home course for the 2010 and 2011 Illinois State Champion Lake Forest High School Boy's Golf Team.
