Put another one the board for Chicago Golf! A recent article in Golf World magazine included two public Chicago golf clubs among the 25 Best Nine-Hole Courses in America.
Chosen to represent Chicago Golf in this list are Pottawatomie Golf Club in St. Charles and Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Club in Chicago. Pottawatomie was ranked 15th and Marovitz was chosen 18th.
Pottawatomie was originally designed in 1939 by legendary golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones, Sr., who capitalized on the course’s location along the banks of the Fox River. The course is now owned and operated by the St. Charles Park District and it offers some of the most scenic views of any nine-hole course in America.
Pottawatomie Golf Course was also the first 9-hole golf course internationally to become a fully-certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. To keep this prestigious standing, the course goes through an extensive recertification procedure every three years, concentrating its efforts on the preservation of bird and wildlife native habitats. Pottawatomie Golf Course is one of only 234 courses in the world to receive the honor.
Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Club is managed by the Chicago Park District and is usually quite popular due to its central location for many city dwellers. Marovitz features stunning skyline views of the lakefront and the beautiful city of Chicago. It is truly a Chicago Golf landmark.
