Cantigny Golf - Woodside/Lakeside
Located in Wheaton, Cantigny Golf offers 27 holes of championship golf that plays across a beautiful landscape of rolling hills covered with hardwood trees and mature oaks. There are also 12 lakes and two wandering creeks that come into play throughout all of the golf courses. The holes are divided into three nines appropriately named the Lakeside, Hillside, and Woodside. They provide three very different 18-hole combinations. The Woodside/Lakeside Course is a tight course that plays through trees. The many water hazards also demand accuracy. There are interesting elevation changes as well as numerous strategically placed bunkers. All of the Cantigny golf courses are challenging yet playable, making it a great place for tournaments. In the past it has hosted the Illinois Amateur Championship and several USGA qualifiers.

Full tee sheet with a twenty five minute frost delay. Still managed to get in 18 in 4.5 hours. Greens were decent and staff was friendly. Challenging course. Loved it.
Course gave coupon for reduced rate golf. While appreciated, the coupon was for limited use until April 30th (2019). Not much golf is played in April ( weather) -in chicagoland. Hoping for warmer fall days & an early spring! Coupon should have been through May at least.
One of the Best Public Golf Courses in the US
Cantigny Golf lives up to its billing as one of the best public golf courses not only in Chicagoland but throughout the whole USA. Service excellence from the bag drop area, the pro shop and the starter area. Really enjoyed the game and the picture perfect sceneries along the fairways. Looking forward to my next round with friends.
The course was in perfect condition with a very friendly staff. We played 36 for a fairly reasonable rate that included lunch. I haven't played Cog Hill but have played the General in Galena and this is just as scenic and challenging as the General, This is a memorable course
Making Chicken Salad out of Chicken ****.
Trying to get a round in under iffy weather conditions. Mon ster downpour after 6 holes. Called off course and the people at Cantigny could not hjave been nicer. Sheltered opur cart, offered a raincheck if we couldn't get basck out. Adfter 1/2 hour rain stopped , the sun came oput, and we had a tremendoius back nine. Kudos to the entire staff for making it a great day.
High quality course, nice staff, and the prices are fair.
Golf and more
Played and got what I had expected from Cantigny...wonderful day.
went back for parent/child event...what a great experience....
putting green course was the best...thank you to the staff for a wonderful tme.
Excellent course. Country Club experience. This is one of the better golf courses in the Chicago area.
Course was immaculate! Played on the 4th of July and we were on the back9 all alone! Greens are true and fairways are awesome!
Awesome Course Great shape
Cantigny is a wonderful course. Played Lakeside Woodside.. Usually wet but we played it the day after rain and it is draining well. Course renovations are underway but the greens and fairways are in great shape. If you can play it for $80 or less jump on it. $110 it a bit much even for this gem. Staff is super friendly.
Very rewarding experience
I love the course. Beautiful, very good paced, good weather. The course is well maintained and surrendered by the trees.
Excellent as Always
Just the best course/facilities in the area. Well manicured, fast & smooth greens - everything is literally 5 stars. Have been playing here for years and have over 100 rounds in the books.
The course was wonderfully maintained. The staff was friendly and outgoing. The pace was great. 4 players finished in 4:10. Challenging enough for intermediate golfers while not being too difficult for beginners.
My only issue is that it is expensive and there are 2/18 (11.1%) holes of the course that are heavily under construction. I think while that is going on, there should be an 11.1% discount.
We loved this course. Can’t wait to return. It’s a true championship course!
Course in terrific shape
Always a pleasure to play Cantigny. The course as usual was in great shape, the tees, fairways and greens all very well manicured, and the rough and natural areas are starting to turn to fall colors making it the course visually appealing. Service slow in the restaurant but the food was quite good, overall a great experience. Hard to go wrong with Cantigny.
