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.

Had to quit after 12 Holes in 3-1/2 hours. Would've been well over 5 hours. Ridiculously slow paced.

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.
