Built in the late 1920’s, Silver Lake Country Club in south suburban Orland Park boasts 3 golf courses and 45 holes of golf. In 1958, the original Silver Lake clubhouse was lost to fire and subsequently rebuilt. Despite all of its history over the past 80+ years, the one thing Silver Lake Country Club always lacked was a driving range… until now.
On Monday, May 7th, the course proudly anounced the opening of their highly anticipated golf driving range with a ribbon cutting celebration scheduled for Friday, May 11. The festivities were scheduled to include representatives from TaylorMade and Aldila along with former World Long Drive Champion Joe Hajduch.
Silver Lake Country Club features two 18-hole golf courses in Orland Park and one nine-hole course. The North Course plays close to 7,000 yards from the back tees and the tree-lined fairways require both distance and accuracy off the tee.
The South Course at Silver Lake is significantly shorter in distance but offers many more hazards – both sand and water. Groundskeepers recently refurbished the greens and fairways while renovating many bunkers on the course as well.
The executive nine-hole golf course at Silver Lake is called Rolling Hills for obvious reasons. Elevation changes are the norm on this beautiful design that features seven par 3’s and two par 4s. This course is a great place to learn the game or sharpen your short-game skills.
