Opened in 1926, in the "Classical ERA" of U.S. course development, St. Andrews Golf & Country Club has been recognized as the oldest family owned-operated golf course in Illinois.
St. Andrews Golf & Country Club was originally built in 1926 as a rival to the Chicago Golf Club. Since then, the club has built its own reputation and stands out for its two championship golf courses and top-ranked practice center. The St. Andrews Course is the club's original layout before the Joe Jemsek Course was added in 1929. It is also the longer of the two golf courses. The club and course draw their name from the famous Scottish club known as the "home of golf," but the course is far from being a seaside links. Instead, the mostly flat layout weaves through mature trees. The golf course offers a challenge with tight, tree-lined doglegs and large, contoured greens framed with sand bunkers. It has a memorable finish with a par 4 that features a water hazard along the entire right side of the fairway.

Awesome Winter Golf

I’m really not a fan of golf below 50 degrees. That noted, this was the best day of winter golf in Chicagoland ever! A little snow on the fairways and greens but that made it interesting. And nothing better that snow bunkers! It’s like the playing out of really soft sand. Anyway, I walked 18 in 2hrs 30mins. Love that pace and had a really good scorecard. It was a really great day!

I have played both courses here, and I have to tell you that both sides are great! The greens are hilly and challenging and the trees are abundant, but they don’t crowd the holes so there is room for your balls to wander to either side. You really get the sense of being outdoors when playing here. There are some holes where you need to walk/drive a bit through “the woods” to get to the next hole. This experience really disconnects you from the modern world and lets you really get in touch with being away from it all.

Fall golf

Played Monday Oct 2nd. Very cheap golf now rate.
I thought maybe greens were aerated. I was told that occurred a few days earlier. Greens were great. Maybe the best ever at this course.
Played in under 4 hours. Felt like we were at a private course
