Carriage Greens Country Club

CARRIAGE_GREENS_COUNTRY_CLULocated right off I-55 in west suburban Darien is Carriage Greens Country Club. This wonderful golf course offers 18 magnificent holes of pristine beauty. They are challenging yet fun to play for everyone, the beginner and experienced alike.

Carriage Greens Country Club features a number of interesting doglegs carved through dense trees, placing a premium on ball position. What’s unique about this layout is you’re forced to hit both draws and fades on a number of holes if you expect to attack the greens.

The 384-yard par 4 ninth hole is a perfect example of the premium placed on shot-shaping at Carriage Greens. Hit a strong draw off the tee and you have a great shot at a favorable green. However, if you come up short or get caught in the woods, your options become extremely limited and bogey now becomes your friend.

Carriage Greens Country Club offers the Sandtrap Grill with brunches, lunches and dinners. It has some fine wine and cocktails to also partake of. This is also a great place for a wedding reception or business meeting.

Makray Memorial Golf Club Vandalized

MAKRAY_MEMORIAL_GOLF

Makray Memorial Golf Club in Barrington has confirmed that all 18 flags from their pins were stolen recently. Makray officials have estimated that the flags were stolen sometime Friday evening, November 25, 2011.

Makray Memorial Golf Club is open throughout the year, making the course an inviting target for vandals during the Chicago golf offseason. Mild temperatures probably added to the opportunity for the thieves.

“We’ve never had anything like this happen before,” Assistant Golf Professional Brad Ray said. “We’ve had one or two of them go missing, but not all 18. That takes a lot of work.”

Barrington police have no leads, and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the incident can call 847-304-3300.
