The course is 30 miles west of downtown Chicago in Cantigny Park in Wheaton. The park is very nice and has gardens, nature trails, and an art museum. The real attraction for me is the Roger Packard designed Cantigny Golf Club with the three nines, Lakeside, Woodside, and Hillside. It's a classic parkland setting with rolling hills, lakes, and forests. with wonderful design features and challenges throughout. The course has been host to the 2007 U.S. Amateur Public Links, the 1998 and 2002 Illinois Amateur Championship and a number USGA qualifiers. All of the courses play to 3350-3400 yards from the tips, but with 4 sets of tees, all well maintained, with a high level of customer service. Water comes into play on a number of holes, as does as fair mix of tight driving holes, as well as more open holes, and a good selection of doglegs. . The slope ratings range between 132 and 138 from the back tees depending on the nines. The greens are fast, mildly undulating, and very well conditioned.
