Wolf Hollow Golf Club
Wolf Hollow Golf Club originally opened in 1928 as Lena Golf Club. The course tumbles across northwest Illinois' gently rolling hills, incorporating quite a few elevation changes into the layout. The golf course has a true risk-reward design that will thoroughly test your shot-making abilities. With proper course management and a bit of luck, there are several birdie opportunities to be had. Measuring in at just over 6,400 yards from the back tees, the course manages to give you a few lengthy holes but it will also put your short-game skills to the test. The 16th is one of Wolf Hollow Golf Club's most intimidating holes because this par 4 has trouble everywhere. A creek and tall grasses guard the left of the fairway and the small green requires a nearly perfect approach shot.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Illinois
I had a long time friend move here last year, a former Riviera CC (LA) and Oakridge CC (Utah) member that hosts an annual Korn Ferry event, and this is his favorite course locally. Great country setting with challenging greens and plenty of elevation changes. You can tell management takes pride in this property!
Shot a 71 today under very nice conditions. Course in very good shape. Traps were caked, but everything else was perfect. Will return!
Course in good condition, staff very friendly. Would recommend playing
need to shorten up red tees length not fair on some holes
Surprising Small Town Gem
What an enjoyable day at Wolf Hollow on this day as C-19 conscious golf is just ramping up in Illinois. The grasses and setting are just beautiful here. Elevation changes and sloping terrain keep the golf interesting from start to finish and with the multiple tee options available you can customize the challenge to your enjoyment/ability level. I love what the community and caretakers are doing with this course in Lena, and I thank them and GolfNow for making me aware of it with a ridiculously low $17 Hot Deal (walking) that tipped the scales in my decision to make the nearly 2-hour trip from my home from Cook County’s NW Suburbs. I will definitely be back here—deals or no deal.
Well maintained course, nice layout and great manager ... at a really good price. Highly recommend.
Awesome, course, have played many times, will play many more times Fantastic, course, fantastic specials
Nice course in very nice condition. Liked the holes and the way they looked. Slow play but not horrible.
Make sure to go!
We make sure we get here at least once a year even though it over an hour drive for us. Great lay out. Great challenges. Unique holes. Make sure you go to “The Rafters” restaurant after. Good food with very reasonable prices!
