Sign at the entrance to Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course
Named Waveland Golf Course until 1991, Sydney R. Marovitz offers Chicagoans a convenient and fun place to play 9 holes by the lake. With two par-5s and two par-3s, it's a conventional 9 hole layout that stretches 3,265 yards. Technically, water is in play only on one hole, the par-3 6th. However, on the longest hole, the par-5 5th, Lake Michigan looms large on the right. The course has developed a reputation for slow play, as its popularity has perhaps become its Achilles heel. Over the years, I've definitely played some excruciatingly slow rounds here, especially on weekends. However, in my most recent round here, we finished in a reasonable 2 hours and 15 minutes. The greens at Marovitz, while slow, are generally in good shape. Unfortunately the fairways aren't as well groomed. Regardless, the course's advantageous location will keep golfers returning. Important note on parking: the lot here is a pay lot run by ParkMobile, which charges anywhere from $1.50 to $3/hour. However, the pro shop will give you a special parking pass that provides all-day parking for $2. Make sure to take advantage.
