Among all the world-renowned courses in Illinois, Itasca Country Club remains a hidden gem. If you love a classic parkland-style course, it will surely earn your admiration, and for good reasons. It is a marvelous creation of legendary golf architect James Foulis Jr. Opened long ago in 1925, the course has been undergone several reconstructions, and the outcome is simply stunning. Located in Itasca, the 6815 yards of 18-hole layout is a delight to play on.

The lush, tree-lined fairways are tight, consistent, and perfectly maintained while the greens are fast. The course features undulating greens sloping from back to front tees. There are also strategic hazards and sand traps that make the layout even more interesting. However, Itasca Country Club has also been rated a good layout for young golfers, especially for kids. The scenic beauty is also mesmerizing. You can find this beautiful 18-hole Lidar course on The Golf Club 2019 (designed by friendBOMBER) as well.
