Length 1163 yards

Rating N/A

Ever since opening in the mid '90s, Arlington Heights Golf Club has been considered one of the best par-3 golf courses in Chicagoland. It is certainly one of the most unique with three holes that feature vertical-drop tee shots and two holes with uphill tee shots to the green. Although this nine-hole course is only 1,163 yards the large bentgrass tees and greens provide the feel of a full-length course. The layout has nearly 30 bunkers strategically placed throughout and water comes into play on two holes. From the elevated tees you can enjoy a panoramic view of the area, including stunning vistas of the Chicago skyline. Whether you're a beginner looking to get some practice or a scratch golfer who wants to get in a quick round, Arlington Heights Golf Club is a fun and challenging option.

Nice executive track

Course was wide open and in really good shape on a Saturday afternoon after a big storm. Everything nice at this hidden gem executive course that will help you tune up your short game, however disappointing that too many golfers are not repairing their ball marks on the greens!

Great course

Everything about this course is incredible the views, the holes, the fairways, however, the rough areas need to be cut a little shorter. It is way too easy to lose a bar 2 inches off the course

Like The Elevation Changes
