Rating 70.9

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.

Excellent Course

Beautiful course with great conditions. A lot of variety with no two holes the same. Greens in wonderful shape, rolling true with good pace. Great views everywhere on the course. Definitely worth the 1 1/2 hour drive! Will play here again.

Nice track

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!

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.
