Cantigny Golf - Woodside/Lakeside
Located in Wheaton, Cantigny Golf offers 27 holes of championship golf that plays across a beautiful landscape of rolling hills covered with hardwood trees and mature oaks. There are also 12 lakes and two wandering creeks that come into play throughout all of the golf courses. The holes are divided into three nines appropriately named the Lakeside, Hillside, and Woodside. They provide three very different 18-hole combinations. The Woodside/Lakeside Course is a tight course that plays through trees. The many water hazards also demand accuracy. There are interesting elevation changes as well as numerous strategically placed bunkers. All of the Cantigny golf courses are challenging yet playable, making it a great place for tournaments. In the past it has hosted the Illinois Amateur Championship and several USGA qualifiers.

Always a challenge to play.
Previous rounds always started the Lakeside course and the Hillside for the back 9. Today we started at the Woodside course which I have not played previously. Played with my son who’s playing Cantigny for the first time. Some surprises but it’s always fun when you are challenged to play your best. Enjoyed the round as usual and looking forward for the next one.
Course was in pristine condition. The greens and overall course was well kept. Course is not too long but still challenging and fun. Can’t wait to come back and play here’s again.
I totally agree! Cantigny is a must play, OFTEN!
My first time playing this course and was it worth the wait. I think they had their club championship before my round. If that wasn’t the case, the pin placements were in places that would make you think the superintendent was angry off or something. LOL The greens were hard and rolled beautifully. I would have to say it’s one of the best greens I’ve played on.
Great course but poor pace of play
Cantigny is one of the premier courses in the Chicago area and I was excited to play. The starter, Lynn, was very friendly. Unfortunately, a 4 hour 45 round took much away from the round and the golf experience. Waiting on every shot and waiting at each tee box disrupted the round. Never saw a ranger.
Never get to finish
I’ve played this course many times and only finished twice. The pace of play is always remarkably slow. Today was an exceptionally slow one (relative to many others in the past). After 3 holes, I was done. The staff was very accommodating with a rain check.
Just know that on weekends, you might be in for a 5hr+ round.
The course was in great shape and the greens were the best greens I played this year.
The course has some very challenging holes.
The staff was very friendly.
Not enough bang for your buck
I never get a wow effect when playing this course. $120.00 to play... personally I think they are a $75.00 golf course tops... several other courses in the area charging way less with better or same course conditions... I'd take my money down the road to Arrowhead or Schaumburg Golf Club before giving these guys $120.00 again... course was over watered, mud balls all day... bunkers are below average... greens shaggy and slow... they need to verdicut and groom the greens.
very nice layout but it ends there for me...
Beautiful course, great staff!!
We dont play here very often as price is high when 2 people play frequently. The staff is super friendly, amenities are nice (even though didnt take much advantage due to COVID 19), pro shop has nice quality merchandise. Will play again.
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!
