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.

5 Hours - What a Shame

Was happy to have caught a Hot Deal. Pace of play was brutally slow on a hot day. Called the clubhouse on the 7th hole after waiting on every tee. They were responsive and sent out a marshal to deal with what turned out to be an off work employee and three other players who were slowing down the whole course. It improved for a few holes but then reverted back to the slow pace when the marshals lost interest. Slow play killed my experience at this otherwise excellent golf course.

Great target golf course.

Course was a fun course to play. You have to place the ball in the right spots to score well. Greens were fast and rolled true. Will definitely play it again. Staff was very friendly.

Tough but fair

Course was in pretty good shape. Interesting course and makes you think as opposed to just grip it and rip it. Course management important. More important choose the proper tee for your game. We played the blue tees (6100 yds) and although many holes play shorter at those tees you had to pick your lines carefully. Greens rolled out pretty good. I like this course cause it always make me think. Always enjoy playing this course.
