Prairie Landing Golf Club has received acclaim ever since first opening in 1995, including a four-and-a-half-star rating from Golf Digest. This West Chicago course will make you feel as though you've been transported to a seaside links course in Ireland. The prairie-style layout closely follows the tradition of classic links golf courses. Robert Trent Jones II designed the course, fully utilizing the rolling terrain. He incorporated large, undulating greens and rolling bent grass fairways. Vast swaths of native grasses stretch along the fairways and strategically placed bunkers frame the greens. There is also contoured mounding to contend with. The golf course finishes with a memorable par 5 that features fairway bunkers on the left followed by a carry over a lake to a well protected, high bowled green. Prairie Landing also boasts a practice facility that includes a driving range with target greens, four practice holes, and a nine-hole chipping and short-game area.

Delayed Start

1:50PM scheduled tee time assuming we could finish 18 in 4.5 hours. Our start was delayed 25-30 minutes only allowing us to get through 14. Asked for a refund or to be compensated and they refused. Not worth $80.

beautiful

had not played there before but wanted to play there. a bucket list course. beautiful layout. i booked a twosome and got paired with a single who played there and was a great help navigating the course. took almost an hour to get there, but glad i went. it is on dupage airport property so there is jet and helicopter traffic. i saw carts in the parking lot but could not figure how to get the cart there. would definitely play again.

Beautiful course, great layout!

I recently moved to the western suburbs and will look forward to playing this course in the future. It is a beautiful course in a great location. The course conditions were outstanding and the greens rolled true and smooth. There were a great mix of shorter and longer holes that make a golfer deliberate and think about shot placement while also providing opportunities for mid-range handicappers like myself.

Beautiful Links Layout

While I don't normally like Links style courses, this one is outstanding. It is always in excellent condition from tee to green. It is a challenging target golf course. I really like that there are NO homes along the course so that you get a true feeling for being "away from civilization" while being on the course, even though there are some signs of life along the outer perimeter. A definite return to destination.

Exceptional Course - A Must Play in Dupage County

This course is a definite must play. Exception condition and very scenic and challenging holes. Pace was a bit slow due to Foursome that did not see to have any incident to play at a faster pace.

No Customer Focus

We drive 55 minutes to play this place that we hadn’t been to for couple of years. Our excitement quickly turned to sadness as we saw the sign “Cart Paths Only today’. The cashier quickly informed us of the 3/4 inch of rain the day before (we hadn’t had rain for the preceding week). What we were NOT told by neither the cashier nor starter was that the greens had been ‘lightly’ sanded; nor were we told that the white fairway stake was 125 yards out….not 150 (you think maybe something good to know during CPO conditions?). Much of this course was not deserving of CPO; the low lying areas were already marked to stay out. There were a few rangers out there (something rarely seen at any course this year), but they were worthless. CPO probably adds 30 minutes to the round, but the rangers did nothing to relieve the rest of the almost 5 hour round. Every time we asked about the possibility of CPO relief, they would quickly blew us off with ‘it’s the superintendent’s call and he never changes it’; thanks for being so customer focused. The carts and the GPS had problems; a ‘governor-induced’ slowdown and GPS beeping occurred SEVERAL times on EVERY hole….for no reason. Given the fact that we were blown-off when asking about our CPO concern, we didn’t waste our time mentioning this cart/GPS issue to anyone.

Public golf with private course feel

I really enjoyed our round at Prairie Landing, despite my worst score in a decade. It is a tough track and a thinkers course. As an older guy I just need to stop thinking I can hit it as far as I used to!

Typically I do not like government entity golf courses. This one is owned by a municipal airport authority and there is a constant stream of airplanes taking off and landing right over your head. I feel that taxpayers should not be subsidizing golf, but this is a good use of open space that is required for an airport, and if the course operation expenses, including the clubhouse bar/restaurant, are covered by golfers, it’s a win win. Usually, this is not the case. Not sure of the financials but typically places like Cantigny, Mistwood, Saint Andrews etc. I support as there are Capitalists behind the course and they deserve consumer support.

The greens were quite slow but to be expected with heavy play, and the yardage from the blacks was reasonable yet challenging. Tips would be TOUGH and the high school team that played behind us noted the challenge.

I will play it again soon as I feel I can do better with a more cerebral and more risk averse approach. #KeepItUp !
