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.

Played the Glen Club yesterday. Outstanding conditioning, greens, tees and fairways, the rough thick and penal. While routed through a residential development, most of the distraction of homes along the course is minimized, a true oasis of sorts in the middle of the city. Great facilities, NXT Titleists on the range, full practice are with chipping and putting area. Excellent customer service, we were never lacking anything, very attentive. The routing is a thinking man's layout, where there's a lot of choices to make par, long and short holes, some forced carries so make sure you're playing from the best tee for your game. Lots of trouble, so accuracy off the tee and on approach is required. Overall, great experience and first class golf course, just on the expensive side.

The Glen Club is a very novel course. It was a naval air base just a bit ago, and was completely flat. They built a very nice looking course that challenges golfers at all skill levels. The caddie program there is really good. I like the course - but I won't ever pay $200+ of my money to play there again. If someone wants to bring me as a guest, I will be happy to play it. The biggest drawback to me is that you can tell it is a young course....has a few trees, but not many.
