Cantigny Golf Club Overview
The wonderful golf playground known as Cantigny is home to three formidable 9-hole golf courses, each with its own signature vibe. The beautiful property has the feel of a private club in many respects, with its attention to detail and focus on the overall golf experience. When it opened in 1989, it won various awards for best new course, and the place hasn’t lost any luster in the years since. The club is owned by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, whose namesake was not only editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune, but a World War I vet who wanted his land to be used for public recreation purposes upon his passing. Cantigny has hosted the Illinois State Amateur Championship numerous times, the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship, and a number of other notable tournaments throughout the years. This is one of the top golf clubs in Illinois, and has a premium price point to match.

As you drive along the long entrance road to the property, you pass by the Cantigny Golf Academy building on the right. Of course the club has the fundamentals, like a grass-tee driving range and a number of practice greens with bunkers. The range is open year-round, lit at night, and is now integrated with Trackman technology. There’s an indoor putting green too. The instruction program caters to both juniors and adults and has 8 teaching pros on staff. There’s a 9-hole youth golf course down the road for kids to work on their game.

As you’d expect, the pro shop here is top notch and stocks a ton of gear, both of the logo and non-logo variety. Cantigny’s main restaurant is called the Fareways Grill and overlooks the golf course. The property is also an Audubon International Sanctuary, meaning it is committed to preserving and enhancing wildlife habitats and protecting natural resources.

Woodside Course
Cantigny’s Woodside course is the longest and most challenging of the three 9-hole courses at the club. Clocking in at 3,618 yards, it winds through the most densely wooded areas of the property. The toughest hole is the 553-yard par-5 second hole which crosses over tributaries of Winfield Creek into a tiny green. Right after that, you’re greeted with a 227-yard par-3. With a rating of 37.7 from the championship tees, it’s the hardest course here by over a stroke, and has a diabolical slope rating of 146. You’ll need your entire bag of tricks to score well here.

Miscellaneous photo of Cantigny Woodside Course in Wheaton, Illinois. The plaque reads: “Welcome to Cantigny, the historic estate of the late Colonel Robert R. McCormick, longtime editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune. McCormick was an Illinois National Guardsman and an artillery officer with the First Division during World War I. He renamed this estate “Cantigny” for a small village in France where he fought in America’s first battle and victory in Europe, May 28-31, 1918. McCormick was so proud of his military service that he became a lifelong advocate for our soldiers and veterans. He often hosted events at Cantigny for American Legionnaires and, especially, veterans of his beloved First Division. In 1937, he helped dedicate the federal monument in Cantigny, France. The memory of the First Division’s deeds, he said, would “march on... to everlasting glory!” Today Cantigny is part of the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, which honors McCormick’s legacy by advancing the ideals of a free, democratic society.”
