River Heights Golf Course blends traditional and links-style holes that straddle the banks of the Kishwaukee River and bring water into play on every hole after the first. The course’s wicked 10th hole sports two aquatic hazards—the river, which guards the the green, and a pond on the right side—in addition to a bunker on the left side. Many consider this the hardest hole, but the third rivals it with a pond-guarded green at the end of a fairway bordered by the river and a copse of trees. The fairway's length can make or break a golfer’s game, especially when wind kicks up or a golfing buddy lets out an ill-timed sneeze. The DeKalb Park District manages the course, ensuring that its carpets of bluegrass flourish. The clubhouse gives players a place to lounge on a wraparound patio and deck, sipping drinks and telling tales of the time they saw Tiger Woods bend a 9-iron into a pretzel. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 6,528 yards * Course rating of 70.8 * Slope rating of 118 * See the scorecard and hole details * Three tee options

Unlike most activities, bowling rewards you for knocking things over. Guests knock things over nightly at these indoor recreation centers in the south suburbs and DeKalb. Bowling lanes at all three locations facilitate relaxed family nights with automatic scoring and bumper options for groups playing with small children. Friday and Saturday nights, the lights dim for more glamorous glow bowling. Fog machines billow mist across the ground as laser and disco lights cast colorful patterns through the air. Every night after close, Kegel Kustodian machines brush over each lane to ensure consistent conditions for the next day of playing.

Each spot also keeps famished players satisfied with sandwiches, pizzas, and appetizers served at an onsite restaurant. The Burr Oak location entertains numerous galas at a 100-guest banquet hall, and in Oak Forest, the goods times move outdoors for summertime volleyball and bean-bag tossing at The Park.

During visits to Chicago Golf and Tiki Tees, players find themselves enveloped by a serene and lush framework of Dekalb's sprawling landscapes and trails. Challenging as it is beautiful, the course's nine-hole layout invites golfers to squeeze in quick games while away from the office or after briefly abandoning their car in rush-hour traffic. The course opens with four consecutive par-four holes, and it really threatens scores at hole six. Here, players encounter a par five with 566 yards between them and the pin. Away from the fairways, though, visitors can enjoy much shorter distances on the facility's miniature golf course. In addition to its pair of courses, Chicago Golf also features a clubhouse and a tiki bar for hosting outdoor events.
