Heritage Bluffs Public Golf Club

24355 W Bluff Rd, Channahon, IL 60410 815-467-7888

Description: CHANNAHON. This lengthy course can play longer because of its rolling hills. Mounded fairways and up-hill approaches make for some blind shots during the round. Fairways are guarded by a combination of trees, mounds, and marsh, so the straighter the shot the better. The terrain also comes into play on well-mounded greens.

Orchard Valley Golf Course

2411 W Illinois Ave, Aurora, IL 60506 630-907-0500

Description: AURORA. With medium-length holes, length is not typically a problem on this demanding course, which ranks as one of Chicagoland's best. However, thick rough lines the fairways, and a number of water hazards guard the greens.
