Located in Wheaton, Illinois, Chicago Golf Club is the oldest 18-hole course in North America, and was one of the five founding clubs of the United States Golf Association.

The club has hosted multiple U.S. Opens and Walker Cups. It was founded by renowned course designer and World Golf Hall of Fame member Charles Blair Macdonald. In July 2018, the club hosted the inaugural U.S. Senior Women’s Open.

On July 13, 1893, the Chicago Golf Club was incorporated with a 2,800-yard 9-hole course on 60 acres of land in Downers Grove. A year later, Macdonald purchased 200 acres of land in nearby Wheaton and built the country’s first 18-hole course.

The original length of Chicago Golf Club was 5,877 yards, but was expanded to 6,032 yards by 1900. The official distance from the black tees is now 6,877 yards.
