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.

Excellent Links style course

The course is in excellent condition. Very large greens but roll true. It's important to keep your tee shots in the fairway. Par 5's are long and challenging from back tees. I really like this course and will definitely play it again! Number 18 is a signature Par 5! Great Course!

Great course and worth the drive from downtown

First time playing here, and I understand why it's on the short list of best Chicago public courses. Lots of risk/reward holes, with a tough layout, but all par 3s were accessible. Greens rolled great and bunkers were pristine. A bit different was the constant buzz of private planes taking off overhead, and even a train rolled adjacent to our tee box. But if that kind of background noise bothers you, you were gonna slice anyway - get over it.

One tip - Neither the check in employee nor the cart girl were wearing their masks properly. Doesn't work when it's around your neck guys!

Great Course BUT

Thursday afternoon golf with my 19 year old son and cart fee was $40. !! Really nice course but overpriced compared to other really good courses that include cart.

Silly mask rules to enter pro shop ! I mean you can’t just social distance ?! Please !! Now when Governor Pigsly says no more masks I guess will all be safe!
