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.

great conditions late season, super firendly staff
beautiful course! still very green in late fall. maintenance staff out and keeping course conditions very great! they're always blowing leaves off greens, fairways, etc. Course...is excellent links test! Lots of hills/undulations and large greens. I really wanted to leave a review because all staff was so kind and welcoming! we were 2 of maybe 5 "dedicated" golfers on the course today and staff was really really welcoming, supportive, funny, kind and went above/beyond with helping golfers. It was 50 degrees out with 20-30 mph winds. Let's just say cold!!!
Our wonderful staff experience: when we were about to make the turn it started to drizzle. One of Prairie Landing staff members drove out to meet us around the 9th green to ask if we needed dry towels or anything else to deal with slow drizzling rain and windy cold conditions!! Just crazy great hospitality!!! Again, there were only 2-4 people on entire golf course at the time and they are out there still helping us! super super hospitality! thank you thank you and it's sometimes little things like this that makes for an above excellent experience!
Great Course & Practice Facility
This is a fantastic course that can play to all skill levels. The course is challenging without being absurd and is very consistent through all 18 holes. Jones has put in several risk reward holes that will test your skill and nerves if you decide to take the risk. The grounds keeping staff keeps the course in great shape all the time and the staff are fantastic and very helpful! The practice facility is unsurpassed in the area (including private courses) and will help you hone your game in all areas.
Challenging, but fair
My home course. Never gets boring. Plenty of risk reward, and nice scenery.
Great links style course (mostly on the front nine). Well maintained. You can usually get a good deal for a round on Golf Now.
The course was in excellent condition and challenging when it needed to be. Would definitely recommend for anyone.
Great deal at a superb course
Love love love this course! Only problem was pace of play. Got stuck behind a 3some that I just couldn’t pass. 4 hour round as a single? Anyway beautiful day and very nicely laid out course. Greens were in great shape and bunkers full. Highly recommended.
Course in great shape
Prairie Landing was in as good a shape as I have ever seen it. Hats off to the grounds keepers!
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!!
Excellent track ,Greens in great shape
I would recommend this course. Greens and fairways in excellent shape. Must hit your targets or else you will find the hazard.
Beautiful course and layout! Well maintained! I love it and would surely play again
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!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We will inform the entire team, so they know their hard work is paying off. We look forward to having you 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.
