Diversey Driving Range is a state of the art modern golf experience. These modern day conveniences include a synthetic turf range, two synthetic putting greens, eighteen holes of miniature golf, and multiple covered heated hitting mat areas.
Originally 9-hole golf course when it was built in 1916, Diversey Golf Course was almost expanded into an 18-hole course. A proposal would have expanded the course to the other side of present day Lake Shore Drive, and would have taken up all of the shoreline from Diversey to Belmont.
Eventually, the golf course was downsized due to a growing surrounding community, and road construction that took place in order to accommodate the popularity of the north side neighborhoods. By the late 1940s the property was converted from a golf course to a driving range.
Diversey Driving Range is open year-around and the second deck offers spectacular views of Lake Michigan, Diversey Harbor, Lincoln Park Zoo and downtown Chicago. During the warm weather months the facility opens before sunrise and closes after sunset seven days a week.
Bunkers at 50, 100, 150 and 175 yards provide yardage guidelines for golfers who pay $10 for a small bucket (50 balls) or $16 for a large bucket (100 balls). Discount cards are available for regulars, seniors and juniors.
