Type Public
Par 70
Length 6371 yards
Slope 127
Rating 71.1

White Pines Golf Club is ideally situated for both locals and visitors with a convenient location that is just 30 minutes from downtown Chicago and only 10 minutes from O'Hare International Airport. The club has two 18-hole courses, the East and the West. The East is the shorter and more player friendly of the two at 6,371 yards from the back tees. The fairways are seemingly narrow but there is some room for recovery if you have an errant shot. There aren't as many bunkers or water as on the West Course, but there is enough to provide a fun round. In addition to 36 holes of golf, White Pines G.C. also offers the Golf Dome, one of the world's largest indoor golf facilities. It features five target greens surrounded by bunkers, 50 hitting tees on two levels, and six suspended hitting targets for practicing your accuracy.

Great value 30 min from downtown

Small greens make this an interesting course for anyone. Planes taking off in the background is actually fun, and not a distraction.

Best Course of the Year

We played 20-25 times this year with 5-6 times at White Pines. Saved our last of the year play at our favorite course with the great weather at White Pines on November 20! The conditions at most courses we played during Covid this year were average to poor with only a couple that continued to keep course conditions excellent during these tough times! We had the second tee time of the morning and were pleased to see the multiple course maintenance crew taking care of the course in front of us! While other courses made excuses for their maintenance blaming Covid, that fell on deaf ears with us, since a few courses, to include White Pines, continue with proper maintenance and still continue to follow necessary Covid protocols. We look forward to next season at White Pines and hope for a miracle warm day between now and then...White Pines will be our 1st choice!!

Great round

Was paired with three others and had a great time.. Course was in great shape leaves are all picked up. No trouble finding your ball in the rough, grass was cut close. Staff was friendly pace of play was really good, finished our round in under 3 1/2 hours. No complaints enjoyed the unseasonably warm weather and hit the ball pretty well for the most part. I used to work at this golf course many many years ago on the ground crew. Cool to see how the course is doing now. Would recommendThis course to anyone who wants to play a challenging layout but not so challenging that you can't score well.
