Twin Lakes Golf Club Overview
The longest hole is 200 yards at this 9-hole executive golf course owned by the Westmont Park District. That would be the opening hole, which is the only par-4 on the property. The rest are par-3’s, the longest of which is 185 yards from the back tees. And although they share the same name and are both short 9-hole courses, don’t confuse this course with the Twin Lakes golf course in Palatine, which is about 30 minutes north of here.
Strictly speaking, it’s not clear to me which two lakes are referred to in the name of this course. The property has two small ponds, but the park to the east also has ponds, one of which is named Twin Lakes Park Pond. More to the point, water is in play on four of the nine holes at the club, plus there is a creek that runs through the northeast portion of the track, introducing itself on hole 7. Par is 28, and the course measures out at 1,381 yards. The course is mostly flat, along with straightforward greens.
There is no driving range here, but there is one practice green for putting, and a separate green for chip shots. As you might expect at a short 9-hole muni, the pro shop is modest, basically a counter with basic essentials like balls and tees. The goal here is to get you out on the course quickly, and hopefully you finish the round quickly too.
