The Glen Club was built on the former Glenview Naval Air Station in Glenview, the north side of Chicago, 30 minutes from O'Hare, and from some vantage points you can see the Chicago skyline in the distance. It was designed by Tom Fazio in 2001 on a rather flat, motionless piece of ground, but 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, 74.8/140, course/slope ratings. 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 which come into play, a stream, and 5,000 trees which were planted as part of the design. Most of the holes offer wide fairways, but there's tall fescue grass rough lining the fairways, which is generally a stroke lost to recover.
