The Glen Club was built on the former Glenview Naval Air Station in Glenview, the north side of Chicago, 30 minutes from O'Hare. It was designed by Tom Fazio in 2001, on a rather flat, motionless piece of ground. After Fazio got through with it, the course rolls with some hilly terrain, mounding, humps and hollows.
It is a par 72, offering 4 different tee boxes, playing at the max of 7,149 yards with a 138 slope. It's a parkland style course, but with some open holes with elevation changes of up to 35 feet throughout the course. Course management is really at a premium here as you make your way around. Hazards here include five lakes which come into play, a stream, and 5,000 trees. Most of the holes offer wide fairways, but for the really errant shot there's tall fescue grass rough which will cost you a stroke. From some vantage points you can see the Chicago skyline in the distance.
