If you love golf you’ll love living in The Glen

Name another community like the Glen that has two quality golf courses within walking distance of every home.  (I’m waiting.  Still waiting.  Yup, still here…and still waiting.)

One of the great things about living in the Glen is the easy access to The Glen Club and Glenview Prairie Club…two courses of very high quality and open to the public. The Glen, as you may know, is a Chicago north shore residential and retail development on the grounds of the former Glenview Naval Air Station. There are 2,000+ luxury homes of all varieties; and home prices range from the $300’s to over $2 million.

The Glen Club is well known and highly regarded locally and throughout the country. 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 currently rates it as 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 offers overnight lodging and first class dining. The club offers private corporate memberships, but it is also available to non-member individual golfers.

Located just across West Lake Avenue you’ll discover a jewel of a public course, the Glenview Prairie Club which 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, and several are currently for sale. 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 townhomes and villas in the lovely Regency and Patriot Commons neighborhoods also have great views. A new housing development in the Glen (Westgate, still under construction) will have views of one or both courses.

If you are a golfer who may be interested in living in the Glen please contact me for additional information. I am a long time Glen resident and an award winning Realtor with Coldwell Banker.
