Join the Winnetka Men's Golf Club

Why Join the Winnetka Men's Golf Club?

We have one of the best courses in the area opening up in short order: Millions of dollars has gone into golf course renovations in conjunction with stormwater abatement.  First class architecture, cutting edge water management systems, newly configured hole designs, reconstructed fairways, tree management and removal, new bunkers with updated drainage, fiercely devoted groundscrew, professional facility management in Kemper Sports, and roster of members befitting an association that dates to 1956.  

With the golf course now under renovation (target completion date is August 2024), we have developed an approach to keep the Men's Club active until the renovation is complete.
