About

General Information

Welcome to the Chicago chapter of the MGA. We have been around since the fall of 2009. We currently are on hiatus until a once and future king comes to claim the chapter presidency or until the current chapter president has more time to manage the events and a small child, who will, eventually, be less demanding. Or so he hopes.

If you'd like to take this chapter over, click the 'Contact Leader' in the top right of the page to learn more. The current chapter leader would be more than happy to assist you in that endeavor and even help run the first event.

Where We Like to Play

Course City Description
Ravisloe CC Homewood, IL This is the lone Donald Ross course open to the public in Chicagoland. An absolutely gorgeous course, tough but fair greens, and plenty of sand you'd best avoid.
Highlands of Elgin Elgin, IL A absolutely stunning, links style, course toward the farther reaches of NW Chicago suburbs. Tough but fair, each hole seems to offer a risk/reward scenario, making this course a really fun play.
George Dunne National Oak Forest, IL This is a solid track for a reasonable rate. Pretty wide fairways but some difficult approaches to the greens due to protection from bunkers and water.
Big Run Lockport, IL Also known as Big Fun because this course is circus like with its length and elevation changes. Extremely well maintained, this is a track to try your hand at, especially if you can bomb it.
Highland Park CC Highland Park, IL A quick 40 min trip from downtown and you'll arrive at Highland Park CC. The folks running the operation will treat you right and don't forget to snag bloody mary's before teeing off. The course is straightforward with some tight chutes to navigate in order to keep your score low. Great operation for some no-nonsense golf close to downtown.
Midlane Zion, IL Midlane is located just south of the WI border and hosted our Sausage Cup event against the Madison chapter. It was an extremely wet day and the course (greens inparticular) held up remarkably well. The greens played so fast despite the rain, that I shudder to think what we would have done if it had been dry.
