About Glenview Park Golf Club
The Glenview Park Golf Club is an 18-hole public golf course located in the north shore of Chicago in the Glenview community. The club was originally named Chesterfield Golf Course and was designed by Joseph A. Roseman in 1920. In 1955, the Glenview Park District purchased the course and began operating it as the Glenview Park Golf Club. In 2015, the club completed a major course renovation lead by Rick Jacobson along with major renovations to the clubhouse. The entire property is 110 acres, the course sees roughly 38,000 rounds annually. Greens, Tees, and Fairways are all bentgrass playing surfaces. Although we are a public facility, the course conditions are maintained to private club standards.
