Golfing in The Glen

It’s spring, and that means golf.  Here in The Glen we are fortunate to have two – count them TWO – wonderful golf courses, both within walking distance of any Glen home.

A wonderful thing about living in The Glen is the availability of  The Glen Club and Glenview Prairie Club.  Both courses are of high quality and they are open to the public. The Glen is a Chicago area north shore residential and retail development.  There are over 2,000 luxury homes of all types, and home prices range from the $300’s to over $2 million.

The Glen Club is well known and highly regarded. It’s an 18 hole championship course designed by the legendary Tom Fazio. The course is beautiful to look at and challenging to play. Golf Magazine has rated it the fourth best courses you can play in Illinois and among the Top 100 in the United States. When it opened in 2001 Sports Illustrated listed it as a top 10 new course. A stately 48,000 square feet clubhouse provides overnight lodging and first class dining. The club offers private corporate memberships, but it is also available to non-member individual golfers.

The Glenview Prairie Club offers Paddle Tennis courts as well as golf. The course is meticulously maintained (by The Glen Club!), and it is beloved by Glen residents who prefer a shorter round of golf.

Many Glen homes have great views of these picturesque golf courses. Fifty-five magnificent “estate” single family homes in the Southgate subdivision border The Glen Club’s course as do nine stunning townhomes in Tower Crossing. Several homes in the lovely Westgate and Patriot Commons neighborhoods also have great views.
