Chicago Golf Club [TGCT]

Designer: Justin Smedley

Course Description:

"The Chicago Golf Club was founded by Charles Blair Macdonald and opened for play in the summer of 1892 in Belmont, Illinois. In the spring of 1894, the club moved to its present site in Wheaton where Macdonald designed the first 18-hole golf course in the United States. Chicago Golf Club is also one of the five founding member clubs of the United States Golf Association. During the early years of the club, it was honored to play host to several USGA Championships. However, Macdonald felt that his original design would not hold up to the advances in the game, and at his suggestion, Seth Raynor redesigned the course in 1923. The present day course includes many of the wonderful holes that Macdonald and Raynor have become famous for: the “Road” 2nd, “Biarritz” 3rd, “Redan” 7th, “Short” 10th, “Punchbowl” 12th, “Eden” 13th, and “Cape” 4th and 14th." - Golf Digest
