Chicago, IL 60649-1054, United States

This historic 18-hole golf course is the pride of the Chicago Park District. Mature hardwood trees protect the fairways and greens putting emphasis on accurate shots. Par 5’s reaching 560 yards and par 3’s extending to 200 yards require golfers to utilize every club in the bag. The renovated Cecil A. Partee Clubhouse now makes Jackson Park the perfect location for your golf outing.

This is a great old course...I'm a tough grader. It's set on the site of the 1890-something Chicago World's Fair a.k.a. Columbian Exposition. It was originally designed by Tom Bendelow who also did significant work at more famous Chicago courses like Medinah and Olympia Fields. It's tight with big, mature hardwoods, small greens and the scenery along the lake is lovely. It is on the South Side so there's always a chance of a "situation"...but I've never actually heard of one. The regulars are great's not remotely a "crack house course" like Franklin Park in Boston. It's cheap and close for those of us that live in the city. The four stars for value I've awarded isn't just for the's a real treat.

Overall great value. Close to Chicago and with the new management, the course is really improving. They greens now actually break! Love playing here when the pace of play isn't ridiculously slow.
