The Chicago area is pretty untouched for us, so North we go. The question is always "Is this best use of the day?" So any input is welcomed.
Sure, Chicago is fine golf, but I'd consider it more of an "if you're in the area" kind of a place rather than "destination area" especially since you've already hit LL and RL. Not saying you can't have a good time at that grouping of courses, My recommendation (for this or future trips of a similar length) - Iowa, either Quad Cities, Des Moines, or Iowa City. Or Omaha, Peoria, Peru IN, Ft Madison IA.

Enjoy your time in Joliet and watch out for the locals around that area...
