Links-Style On The Prairie

Prairie Landing Golf Club
2325 Longest Drive
West Chicago, IL 60185
(630) 208-7600

About an hour west of the city of Chicago, between the soaring cornstalks and a propeller's-hum earshot from the DuPage County Municipal Airport is Prairie Landing Golf Club.

This Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed Scottish-links style 18-hole gem has a full practice area as well as two par-four ‘practice’ holes, making it not only a challenge for the seasoned golfer, but a well-integrated facility for the hacker trying to learn how to shake the jitters and break 100.

The nearby air-traffic, namely single-props, puddle jumpers and the occasional WWII fighter can be a little nerve-racking, but pleasant to the eyes nonetheless. The course can and will get windy over the links, with plenty of shaggy rough and fescue surrounding the wide, negotiable fairways. There are 5 sets of tees to choose from, with the forward-most tee boxes (Red) measuring at a distance of less than 5,000 yards, an un-intimidating distance for those beginners who are just learning how to play the game.

City dwellers may balk at the long drive from the city, but Prairie Landing is well worth it.
