The 2022 Golf Season will be upon us in No Time
We are planning on a full season of golf in 2022. We have in store a good mix of competition and social events. Sign ups for the 2022 season will begin in Early February. The rennovation of the golf course is still targeted to start in early November 2022. We will let you know as we learn more.
The Men's Club is working on removing Buckthorn from the berms of the Golf Course
This is the 10th year we have been doing this. We work on days with ok temperatures and no precipitation. Once snow is on the ground we stop. If you are interested, let Pat Dowdle know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll add you to the email list.

Update on Winnetka Golf Club course construction
The Proposal by the Village of Winnetka and Winnetka Park District to update the golf course as part of the stormwater plan is moving forward. The target we are told is that they will begin in November after a full season in 2022. As we have actual dates and a timeline, we will let you know.
- July 1, 2021 update: "The Village of Winnetka's Stormwater Project continues to gain great momentum. The Village board of trustees, staff, and partner experts have secured in-depth engineering designs and construction plans, along with better insight into the overall timeline.
Based on the current Stormwater Project timeline, the Winnetka Golf Club will be open for play in 2022. Keep an eye out for another update later this summer with more specific details."
