About

Holes 18
Type Public/Municipal
Par 68
Length 5432 yards
Slope 122
Rating 66.0

Arlington Lakes Golf Club is situated amid the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Locals treasure the course as one of the area's hidden gems. At 5,331 yards from the back tees, this par-68 layout is on the shorter side but don't underestimate its level of difficulty. Besides the mature trees that frame many of the holes and 14 lakes that come into play, there are more than 100 strategically placed bunkers lurking throughout. The layout also features small, sloped greens that demand accuracy but you can take comfort in the fact that there are no doglegs. With strategic shot-placement and a bit of luck, there are some birdie opportunities available. The shorter length of the golf course will appeal to beginners but it's versatile for more advanced players to enjoy as well.

Great round

My friend and I really enjoyed this golf course today. We did not have to wait at any holes. This allowed us to finish our round in well under four hours. Course is in good shape for November. I would recommend this course, and will definitely be back. Thank you.

Take some of the sand out of the bunkers, pleae

This has become my go to course, I live a few miles away. Even in November the course is in good condition. My only issue is the bunkers have way too much sand, and it’s the heavy beach sand. But overall a gem of a golf course

Outstanding value.

I played today for $22.00 with a cart. A GolfNow " Hot Deal".

The course was in great condition, the pace of play was good and although I wish I had played the front better, I had a great time.

Fun course. Worth the play.

Good course to play. Greens do test you a little bit but nothing too demeaning for new golfers. Definitely a shorter course but still a good time. No doubt will play again .

Consistent , solid

Great course, shorter but hazards make it a challenge. A decent golfer should break 80 here. Beer deals in the clubhouse. Friendly staff always ready to help and serve.

Classy Course and Staff

Beautiful course that is well kept. This course is a short course but challenging if you do not hit it straight. Course is very well kept. Pace of play is normal not slow. Marshalls on the course to keep it moving. Starter Bill very friendly and good at his job. He notifies you in advance who you will be playing with and makes sure your off on time. Brian in pro shop very professional and friendly. Knows the course well and provided some good tips. Very friendly staff. Must have good management staff to run a course so well. Thank You!

Overall course not bad. There's a lot of water and very difficult pin placement. #2 is especially difficult with a very narrow fairway at an angle from the tee box and water on both sides. The par 3's were reasonable. 10-18 opened up and was much less frustrating to play.
