Welcome to the Winnetka Men's Club
The Golf Course Renovation Project is well underway. We will post ongoing updates here, with pictures in the gallery at the top of this page.
The course closed November 1, 2022. and they have had decent weather to work. Highlights of note:
Removal of trees is completed. The picture updates in the gallery from November and December show the impact.
The lake is completed left of 17 (January 16 contractor update)
They are draining the old lakes (15 green, left of 18) before they start on the new lake along 18 (January 21 updates in the gallery).
As they remove dirt, they are starting to build up the fairways (Hole 12 fairway has been covered with 12-18 inches of dirt). Jeff Werstak's pictures in the gallery from Dec 11 do a great job of showing how much they will raise the fairways.
To follow the Village timeline on the project, click here. It is updated weekly (most if the time) with the work to be done that week.
Kemper Sports has been hired to oversee the rennovation (Press release
on December 16, 2022), and manage the course after its reopens in 2024. An initial presentation on their plans was held Friday, January 6, at 5 PM at the Clubhouse. We will post a summary.
We have developed a spreadsheet which shows all the local courses, their weekday and weekend rates, and if they have a lottery (as well as sign up dates for the lottery). This list (click here) is a draft in progress, so we will post updates as we become aware of changes.
The course architect, Rick Jacobson, gave a presentation on the project on Januray 18, 2023.
