Since the first fairway drive in 1923, players at Sycamore Golf Club have sent their golf balls cruising down tree-lined chutes blanketed in pristine bentgrass in effort to conquer the course par of 71. The 18-hole course straddles the Kishwaukee River and extends to a total length of 5,817 yards from the back tees and 5,302 yards from the front tees. A meticulous maintenance team keeps the course in excellent condition, meaning golfers will rarely have to hit out of fairway divots or find their golf ball running away with vagabond gangs of crabgrass tumbleweeds.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Total length of 5,817 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 68.2 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 120 from the back tees
  • Two sets of tees per hole

River Heights Golf Course amalgamates traditional and links-style holes for a challenging, varied game enhanced by the Kishwaukee River’s scenic backdrop. Players hop into a cart and dart across the par 72 course, encountering shallow greens, long pars, water hazards, and river bridges built by visit-hungry grandmothers. Many holes are hugged by curvaceous river waters, lending cool breezes to the shady course. Players must take into account the strength of the wind, perilous bunker positions, and unsolicited advice from overeager golf clubs in order to deliver balls to their destination. After matches, golfers can relax at the clubhouse, whose wraparound porch and full bar beckon to players with promises of relaxation and refreshment.
