The Glen Club was built on the former Glenview Naval Air Station in Glenview on 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, but after Fazio added his touch the layout rolls with hilly terrain, mounding, humps and hollows.
It's a parkland style design with development lining the exterior holes and elevation changes of up to 35 feet throughout the course. Hazards include five lakes, a stream, sand along the fairways and greens, and 5,000 trees which were planted as part of the design. Most of the holes offer wide fairways with tall fescue grass rough at the borders and generally a stroke lost to recover. It is a par 72, offering 4 different tee boxes, playing at the max of 7,149 yards, 74.8/140, course/slope ratings with some vantage points where the Chicago skyline is visible in the distance.
