About

Holes 18
Type Public/Municipal
Par 68
Length 5432 yards
Slope 122
Rating 66.0

Arlington Lakes Golf Club is situated amid the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Locals treasure the course as one of the area's hidden gems. At 5,331 yards from the back tees, this par-68 layout is on the shorter side but don't underestimate its level of difficulty. Besides the mature trees that frame many of the holes and 14 lakes that come into play, there are more than 100 strategically placed bunkers lurking throughout. The layout also features small, sloped greens that demand accuracy but you can take comfort in the fact that there are no doglegs. With strategic shot-placement and a bit of luck, there are some birdie opportunities available. The shorter length of the golf course will appeal to beginners but it's versatile for more advanced players to enjoy as well.

Arlington Lakes

Overall course not bad. There's a lot of water and very difficult pin placement. #2 is especially difficult with a very narrow fairway at an angle from the tee box and water on both sides. The par 3's were reasonable. 10-18 opened up and was much less frustrating to play.

Nice course

Well kept course. Pretty short course. Greens have lots of ball marks. Not the course's fault just most people don't repair their marks anymore.

Good Course and in Great Shape

I played here 3 years ago and was glad I came back. The course was in great shape and well maintained. Our foursome had to wait to tee off on only one hole, a par 3, so we were able to walk 18 in 4 hours. Not the longest or most difficult course, but some fairways are narrow, there's lots of water and most greens are tricky, so it can be cahllenging.
