Cantigny Golf in Wheaton offers 27 holes of championship golf. It is also a great place for juniors with an academy and nine-hole youth links course. The holes are divided into the Lakeside, Hillside, and Woodside nines, names that connote the characteristics of the beautiful landscape. There are two meandering creeks as well as 12 lakes interspersed throughout the golf courses. The nines are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Lakeside/Hillside Course, as the name would imply, takes advantage of the many lakes and elevation changes. Mature hardwood trees frame the holes and more than 100,000 flowers provide a colorful accent. In addition to water hazards, there are also strategically placed bunkers along the greensides. All of the golf courses are enjoyable challenging without being overly difficult.

I love this place

What a gorgeous piece of land. Conditions were fantastic. This place has tons of staff comprised mostly of high school kids. Everyone one of them was cheery and eager to help. Also, one of the few courses that actually monitors pace of play which I deeply appreciate. I will return often!

Beautiful Layout

I loved the golf facilities the range, pro shop, and halfway house were all amazing. The course was well kept besides the Bunkers they were very subpar most of the time it felt like you were hitting in clay. For the amount you spend on the course its worth playing it once. I wouldn’t return until they fix the bunkers.

Cantigny - Lakeside

Just beautiful this October day. They had aerated the greens just a week prior and they still were already in good shape. Challenging and stunning course.

A Top Course in the Midwest

I played 15 rounds at Cantigny Golf Club this past season with 10 rounds with the Friday Night Men's Competitive League.

The layouts are different, challeging and top notch conditions well maintained.

The staff are all friendly, accomodating and helpful.

Not worth the money

Not sure if my expectations are too high. Club goes for a country club feel as so as you drive down the stretch of road heading to the clubhouse. As soon as you set foot on the course that country club feel immediately goes away. The amount paid for 18 at this course 120 per person (believe it or not was the hot deal price) is extremely high for the actual quality of experience. I expected a well kept course, like I assumed anyone spending 120 for 18 holes would. Some holes were decent. But others had greens that looked like they've been neglected for months, tons of ballmarks, diseased chewed up areas, and overall neglect. Huge divots in the fairways left unfilled. I really wish this course was maintained properly. Especially for the steep tee time price. This course has so much potential but I feel like its completely wasted. The driving range is also very underwhelming and tight.

Cantigny - A Great Walk in Wheaton IL

Schedule a caddy for your Golf experience at Cantigny to enjoy the golf experience. Why rush? Great golf afternoon with my sons. The fairways and greens need much more Cantigny love as they appeared pretty beat up yet the overall golf experience was very good.

Play Cantigny, It's Worth It

Two weeks in a row for me playing Cantigny. After last week I didn't think it could get much better but was I ever wrong. Coming off of the Club Championship, the course was in immaculate condition, and the greens were lightning fast. Cantigny is such a joy to play. We played Woodside to Lakeside again, but the course is amazing regardless of which nines you play. The property is full of wildlife and beautiful scenery it's a joy to be there even if you're not playing golf. I highly recommend that you play Cantigny, and not just once per year!

Always a good time!

This is the second year in a row that I visited Cantigny for my bday! Always a great overall experience. Amazing facility and friendly staff. Few things to note this time around. 1, the greens were a little beat up. People, repair your ball marks. Seriously. 2, there was very little to no sand in the base of the bunkers. Lost a few strokes there as my ball cruised past the hole 20-30 feet further than expected. 3 we saw two beverage carts the 1st hole, one a few after that, then nothing. We even requested with 5-6 holes to play and nothing. This has become standard issue with many courses where on a weekend after 4-5pm, no beverage carts. C'MON! It's the weekend. And my bday :)

One of my favorite

Excellent golf course to test your game fast greens but fair. If you spread the ball left and right this will be a very difficult course it demands to hit good shots it keeps you focus.

Great Facility

Course conditions, staff, and amenities were all top notch. My only suggestion would be improved GPS on the carts. You only get a number to the middle of the green, and being unfamiliar with the course, I would have benefited from the full screen display to be able to determine yardages to hazards / doglegs / etc... Regardless, it was still a great day of golf.
