Carriage Greens Country Club maintains sprawling fairways and deviously designed hazards on a pristine, par 70 course to create a challenging round for all levels of golfer. Take to the links solo or with a gaggle of other golfers and launch drives from a trio of tee boxes staggered to accommodate different handicaps or synchronized chipping demonstrations. All 18 holes sit atop manicured greens at the end of emerald alleys lined with lush forestry, sprinkled with sand traps, and snaked by cattail-lined waterways. Club staffers strive to make an enjoyable day on the links; cart managers ensure each electric ride is clean, and player assistants monitor the speed of play to hustle sluggish parties or cool off foursomes about to break the sound barrier between strokes.
After conquering the course, maneuver golf carts back to Carriage Greens’ clubhouse. Inside, Chicago District Golf Association members can chart round scores and calculate overall handicaps on the pro shop’s computer, and accompanying linksfolk can stock back up on balls, tees, and fuzzy socks in the shape of Lee Trevino’s head.
Carriage Greens Country Club’s rates vary throughout the week, as well as for seniors and juniors.

Carriage Greens Country Club’s 18-hole course stretches across 6,395 yards of pristine fairways hemmed by native wetlands and mature trees. Cattail-lined water hazards loom on the edges of 10 holes, testing golfers' course management and sustaining a sophisticated underwater civilization that uses golf balls as currency. Golfers can refuel with a hearty nosh at the Sandtrap Grill such as their popular burgers, and recapitulate flush drives and pinpoint approaches with a classic martini at the 8700 Club & Lounge, open Friday and Saturday evenings.
