challenging 18 hole layout features narrow,
tree-lined fairways. The small greens put a
premium on shot-making and short game skills.
At just over 6,000 yards, the course is short
and very playable, but has brought some of the
best players to their knees.
hazards come into play on 13 of the 18 holes. In
addition, sand bunkers have been well-positioned
on some fairways are around most greens.
With a par of 71, course rating of 69.6 and a
slope of 119, the course plays differently each
day depending on wind and conditions due to the
elevation changes and pin locations.
Great care should be given
to keep the ball in the well maintained blue
grass fairways, as the course was well designed
to benefit those who keep the ball in scoring
positions. Our greens are regarded as some
of the best in Chicagoland. Fast, true
putting surfaces that hold a well struck shot
keep our members shooting for the flag.
Our traditional fall
event, the Men’s Charity Invitational, named
after former MCC Board President and current
member Marvin Rude, is a testament to our great
conditions, as well over 100 of the state’s
great players gather to compete on our fantastic
layout for a 2-day event.
