Prairie Bluff Golf Club located in the southwest suburb of Crest Hill is a perfect reason why it’s great to be a Chicago golfer. Designed by Roger Packard and Andy North, Prairie Bluff opened for play in 1998 and is located less than 30 miles south of downtown Chicago. This course is a tremendous example of a Chicago golf facility that has something for everyone.
From the tips, Prairie Bluff plays at just over 7,000 yards and can be a test, especially when the wind whips across this largely open-style course. However, the tee shot landing areas are often wide and forgiving. Even if you’re not a big hitter, keep the ball in the fairway on this course – from any tee – and you have a shot at posting a good score.
In addition to its tough but fair playability, Prairie Bluff Golf Club is always one of the more well manicured courses in the Chicagoland area. Supervisor of Golf Maintenance Luke Strojny has his work at this course down to a science, with the wide fairways always in great shape.
At Prairie Bluff, you’ll come for the golf, but you’ll stay for the food. Food & Beverage Manager Mike Berris(photo right) is a barbeque master who produces some of the most delicious BBQ beef and pork sandwiches this hungry golfer has ever experienced. Even if you’re not playing golf, at trip to Mike’s popular P.B Mulligan’s restaurant at Prairie Bluff is worth the trip.
