Judy Greenberg Group- Real Results: Wheeling Illinois- Let's go golfing....

Wheeling Illinois- Let's go golfing....

Although Wheeling Illinois has only one golf course, Chevy Chase, I have a compiled a list of nearby wonderful  golf courses.

Besides Real Estate, I can honestly say that golf is my passion.    When you work 12 hours a day like I do, the phone constantly ringing, it's necessary to give yourself time for a hobby or an outlet. Outlet malls are good... but for me golf is my favorite kind of outlet.     

Golf is the time that I'm able to spend time as close to nature as possible. I can experience lush green grass, beautiful flowers, trees, and wildlife.  While golfing, I have seen everything from herons to  llamas, and coyotes as well as a goose giving birth on the golf course.   Golf is the time I can laugh with my friends, and spend quality time  with my husband.  Golf is  also the time I can be without a phone, Lastly, golf is the time I even get some level of  exercise and have fun doing it.

The game is both challenging and frustrating at the same time.  If you get to know me, you will know that I love challenges.  Just like I enjoy finding the perfect home for each of my clients or selling a home in the shortest amount of time for the highest price, I love the challenge to develop the perfect, consistent swing. Unfortunately I'm far from that level now.  

For those of us who live in Buffalo Grove, Long Grove or a contiguous suburb, there are so many excellent courses to play golf within a 15 minute drive.     Although we have such a short golf season, its fun while it lasts.  Golfers from Chicago appreciate  every day  the sun is shining and the temperature is greater than 62 degrees.

I have a compiled a list of golf courses in the Northwest Suburbs within 30 minutes from Buffalo Grove. 

Public Golf Clubs

The Arboretum Club   is located at 401 Half Day Road in Buffalo Grove.  The course is lushly landscaped.  It is approximately 100 acres of rolling fairways, large varieties of trees and wildflowers.  My only advice when you play this course is to bring a lot of balls- there are a lot of water holes.

Arlington Lakes Golf Club is located at 1211 New Wilke Rd. in Arlington Heights  This course also has a lot of lakes and sand traps.  Their excellent design and manicured greens make for a quality golf course.

Buffalo Grove Golf Club   is located at 48 Raupp Blvd in Buffalo Grove is one of the finest municipal facilities in the area.  The course features bent grass greens and bluegrass fairways and tees.

The Traditional Course, with bent grass tees and tree-lined fairways, offers golfers scenic and challenging rounds of play.

 Nickol Knoll Golf Course This golf course is located at 3800 N. Kennicott Ave in Arlington Heights.    If your kids need a place to play or you working on your short game, this is the place to visit in town.  All holes are par 3, but it is one of the most unique par-3 courses you will ever play. 

Old Orchard Country Club is located at 700 West Rand Road in  Mount Prospect.  It is one of the best-conditioned and challenging courses in the Chicago area. Old Orchard Country Club is a mature and challenging course with narrow fairways. The terrain is slightly rolling, and water hazards come into play on at least nine different occasions.

 Steeple Chase Golf Course is located at 200 N. Lavista in  Mundelein.   Steeple Chase is a wonderful Ken Killian design in a beautiful setting amid natural hills, lakes, woods, and wetlands. Scenic beauty, outstanding course conditions, and challenging greens will keep you coming back.

 Vernon Hills Golf Course  is located at    in Vernon Hills .  This golf course has been ranked as one of the Top Ten Best nine whole courses in the Chicago land area. The golf course features narrow fairways and small greens. The terrain is rolling with a creek that meanders into play on seven holes.
