South Shore Golf Club
South Shore Golf Club was formerly a private nine-hole course but now it is part of the Chicago Park District Golf collection, which features five other courses. Although it is seemingly out of the way, tucked in the southeast corner of the Chicago metro area, it is one of the most affordable rounds you'll find in the area. Through the stands of mature trees, golfers can catch glimpses of Lake Michigan. The carefully preserved landscape has earned the golf course recognition as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. The par-33 layout features tree-lined fairways and small greens. It's a golf course that requires accuracy but it's not overly punishing for high handicappers. South Shore Golf Club is a great course if you're looking to get some short game practice or squeeze in a quick round.

Good course for money and location
This is a good fun course. Not many traps and great views.
Good for a quick 9
Conveniently located and fairly easy course with limited traps. Great for beginners to intermediates.
Great course for novice golfers
The course is a great 9 hole course that is well maintained. Very good place for beginners.
Very interesting track that has obviously been of historic value for some time. Incredible views of skyline and Lake Michigan. In its day I suspect it was jewel of a course!!
Friendly and helpful golfers and srtaff
Easy and comfortable.
I enjoyed buying a beer and sipping along the way in he golf cart.
Single players would easily pass us up.with no hesitation from the groups.
Agem of a place
Came here on a Monday at 5pm after some rain. Had the whole course to myself. Place is in great shape sans a couple spots on some fairways. Amazing views of Lake Michigan. I love that 9 hole course.
Thank you so much for your review! We are happy to hear you had a great time on our course and enjoyed the amazing views. We hope to see you back again soon.
Loved that it was right on the lake! Staff was super nice and great vibes. Course itself could be kept up a bit better but overall it was great and I plan to go back!
I worry that the lake is going to destroy this hole. Please dont let this treasure be lost, this is one of the most beautiful holes in our city if not the most beautiful!
A tucked away 9 hole course on the southside of Chicago
First time playing the course. Was a little worried with proximity to the city that it would be pretty busy. And it was, but the pace was actually pretty constant moving for an early tee time on a Sunday. Be warned that the holes bordering the streets are pretty tight. A righty slice and you could find yourself on south lakeshore drive. Lots of couples when we played so wasnt much pressure. A few holes being worked on. Nice view of the skyline on hole 2. Tighter fairways and holes sorta overlapping when walking to next tee areas. Just need to be a lil more alert when walking. I actually think higher handicap/shorter hitting players would enjoy the course more than low handicaps. Enjoyed our round!
9 holes in less then 2 hours
Had a 7 am tee time. Fast rate of play even with work being done on the course by staff. Our two some finished in 1 hour 40 min.
Small but the lake
Small tight city course. It’s super cheap and you get 2 holes on the lake, which is nice. Down side old dudes without tee times jumping in line and bad golfers abound slows it down a bit.
