There are a lot of good clubs and players surrounding Chicago, but very little in Chicago proper.

Agreed, you need to go out in the suburbs to find Disc Golfers.

So I'm going to resurrect an admittedly rather old thread here. Being one of those players out in the Chicago burbs, do any of you have recommendations on how to find anyone to play with out here? When I lived in Lexington, KY there was a much stronger DG community with leagues, clubs etc. than I've found in the Chicago area. Perhaps there is more going on than I realize but the courses always seem dead by comparison here and I usually play alone.

Seems like a lot of the action heads to Joliet, WI, or IN on weekends...at least that was the case several years ago.

Maybe hit up Aces and Chains in Joliet for some info on local(ish) leagues, tourneys, etc.

There's always a lot of people playing at Highland, The Canyons, West Park, and Trinity so perhaps you could meet peeps on the course.

Agreed, there is much more action in the Joliet/Lockport area - and with good reason, the courses are way better than where I’m at.

I'm in Wheaton, so west suburbs. I do travel around (down to Lockport/Joliet, out west more, up to the NW suburbs by work) to some degree but since I have little kids at home I don't do it all the time.

I'm in the same boat. Between kids and work, I don't get out as much as I'd like. Apologies if any of the below is out of date.

The western burbs is/was somewhat of a dead zone for organized DG. There used to be weekly leagues at the two Lombard courses; as far as I know they are still going. I don't know if they have an online presence; I would usually see league info posted at the courses.

There is a strong scene a bit southwest of you in the Oswego/Aurora area. Fox Valley Metro DG club holds leagues. A bit northeast, Discontinuum was a very active club. There should be a few weekly leagues up in the Lake county area.

The Illinois Open Series is an excellent PDGA sanctioned tournament series that stops at courses all over the Chicago area. Very well run tourneys; I can't recommend them strongly enough.

^Forgot Streamwood Disc Golf Union (or something similar to that). Streamwood isn't too far from you. I believe they run leagues as well.
