Fox Lake Country Club

Sign at the entrance to Fox Lake Country Club
Fox Lake Country Club was a private club from its founding in 1925 until 1983, when it was purchased by a local family and converted to public use. The thing that stands out right away from the first tee box is the elevation changes you'll be working with throughout the round. Most Chicagoland golf courses are flat, but that's not the case here.

The course is well maintained and the striped mowing pattern on the fairways is a nice touch. Almost every green has an apron area too, adding to the eye candy. Water comes into play on 4 holes, so that's not a major concern throughout the round. The course is 6,359 yards, so you don't need to bring a lot of firepower to play well here -- it's very playable. There are lots of mature trees here, but they don't encroach on every inch of every single fairway like in many Chicago area tracks. When you hit errant shots, there's breathing room between holes to get back on track.

There's no driving range here, but there are two practice greens. One for putting and one for short game practice. The restaurant here has a full menu to fuel your round. Unfortunately the pro shop is a bit of an afterthought, without a lot to offer. Perhaps I just happened to catch it during a transitional period. Finally, there's a gambling area with slot machines and such next to the pro shop.
