Rating 73.2

Prairie Landing Golf Club has received acclaim ever since first opening in 1995, including a four-and-a-half-star rating from Golf Digest. This West Chicago course will make you feel as though you've been transported to a seaside links course in Ireland. The prairie-style layout closely follows the tradition of classic links golf courses. Robert Trent Jones II designed the course, fully utilizing the rolling terrain. He incorporated large, undulating greens and rolling bent grass fairways. Vast swaths of native grasses stretch along the fairways and strategically placed bunkers frame the greens. There is also contoured mounding to contend with. The golf course finishes with a memorable par 5 that features fairway bunkers on the left followed by a carry over a lake to a well protected, high bowled green. Prairie Landing also boasts a practice facility that includes a driving range with target greens, four practice holes, and a nine-hole chipping and short-game area.

Optimal Conditions!

Having played this course since it opened, I have to say it is in the best shape that I have seen it in years!! Considering all the rain other courses can’t compare to the shape the course is in.
The staff was great and very accommodating and friendly!
Pace was great considering we teed off at 900 and finished in 4:30 by no fault of the course.
Miss playing this gem I would highly recommend getting out and playing it!!

Great condition

One of the top public courses in the area. Unfortunately there are some long distances in between holes so walking is slow. Good layout for golfers of various skill levels. I’ll be back!

Hidden Gem in West Chicago

Prairie Landing is a wonderful course, providing a fair test for golfers of all skill levels. The layout combines elements of both links and parkland-style golf, requiring players think their way around. The course is well-maintained and in great condition, especially considering the wet Spring. The staff and facilities are top notch - I highly recommend you put this course on your rotation.

Good April Round at Prairie Landing

My partner and I were pleased with the course condition on April 13th. There were some wet areas and several GUR areas, but overall the course was in good playable condition. Unfortunately playing conditions on this day were difficult due to cold and winds. I look forward to playing this course when there is more grass in the fairways and on the greens.

Can’t wait until next time.

Golf course was in great shape for an April 6 round. After we played we found out it was ranked number two in Illinois. We will be back in June or July to play again. Absolutely love the course. Worth every penny.

UNREAL

Prairie landing was fantastic. The layout and design of this course is second to none, and the greens were rolling exceptionally well for this early in the season. Fairways were in great shape, and the staff could not have been more friendly. The practice facilities were incredible as well. It’s a tough course and it will punish you, but you won’t get bad breaks off good shots. Diabolical pin locations make you really think about going at the flag. Each hole is in general absolutely beautiful. One of the best munis in the Chicagoland area, no doubt.
