Chicago Trip

I will have 4 hours to play courses in Chicago next week. I would prefer to stick close to O'Hare in order to maximaze my time, BUT willing to consider travelling a little if I can get some recommendations for those of you who either live in the area or have played.

It looks like I could hit 3 9-hole courses that are about 5-10 miles apart near the airport, or 1 9 holer and an 18 holer.

Thoughts/Recommendations?

The best course I've played in that area is Central Park. It's in a ritzy area near the McDonalds World HQ. If I remember correctly, there are quite a few trees to keep you honest... definitely more of a challenge than your typical eastern Illinois course. Madison Meadow is flat and wide open, but it's decent.

The other two courses I've played there are Jericho and Castaldo and I don't think they're worth your limited time. If it were me, I'd play Madison Meadow to get stretched out then hit a couple rounds at Central Park, get an Italian Beef and call it a day.

Chicago

Unfortunately Chicago is a bit of a disc golf wasteland. To get an honest shake at dic golf, you need to get down south along I 80 near Joliet. The Oaks in Mokena is a championship level course. It has 27 holes. Also near that area a bit further west is West Park in Joliet. Course was establish in 81 (i think) and is a fun experience.

Other than that there is little love in Chicago. When I go there I exclusively play that area.

Good luck!

thanks! If I get a little more time, then I'll head down to Joilet. Madison and Central Park both look doable within my time frame.

You mean jugtown, don't you?

Yup, DG was a big cost to count in the decision to move. Luckily my job takes me up to Milwaukee 1-2 times a week and 2 of my favorite courses are there - Dretzka & Brown Deer.

The Oaks is my home course, and its really nice. The course in channahon is pretty good. Both Joliet courses are good, but avoid Haines' wayside its terrible
