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.

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!

Fun layout, good condition

Course is well maintained. Fun layout. Good-sized greens. Some tough holes, but the course is very score-able. Definitely worth the trip.

loved the challenging holes

for the amount of rain recently the course was in very good shape. A few traps had water in them but didn't bother us. We loved it. And, we will be coming back. Food was good also with a bargain price!

Great course

We always enjoy playing at Wolf Hallow. It’s an hour plus drive for us but try to play it a couple of times a year. Course is in good shape and greens are fast and true. Never disappoints us. Will play it again.

An enjoyable outing

Played mid Friday morning in a threesome. Good pace. Foursome ahead of us encouraged us to play through on #10. Tee, fairway, & greens in very good shape. Gladly play there again.

Great day at Wolf Hollow

The course is in excellent shape. The greens are the equalizer for all golfers. The price is right and the staff is very friendly all the time. It doesn't matter who is working they are all very nice and helpful.
