I just wanted to know how many golf courses you guys had within a half hour of where you live.
I only have two in that range. They are both pretty good but one of them is not to great because it is a low budget course. The other one is very nice I like it a lot becasue it is always in really good shape.

Courses in area

Hi,

I live out west of Chicago, and have about 6 that I can get to in 1/2 hour or less - but that's only because of heavy traffic out where I am.. I'm WAY out there as far as suburbs are concerned, and there are so many courses within an hour or so - that it almost boggles the mind..

I can only imagine the extra planning and time it would take to play different courses if I lived in a more rural area! I don't know if I would be so intent on playing different courses (as I am now) if I did - I think I'd pick that good one you mentioned, and play all of my golf there!

LOL, within half an hour hey.

Well I have one golf course that is 10 mins away, and the next closest is 5 hours away (I live in a country town as you may have guessed)
Ya, I had no idea there was so many! I noticed alot of people at work talking about all these different courses they were playing but I never really stopped to think about counting them till this thread. I guess since I grew up here I just took it for granted.

I also live west of Chicago, but I'm a little closer toward Chicago but still in the suburbs. I'd say there has to be at least 10 courses I could get to in a half hour. We have a magazine for all courses in the Chicagoland area and there has to be a couple hundred at least.

Yep, as far has Golf courses here, in Chicago, we are blessed lol
Yeah the only problem is that every course that is decent will cost you a fairly large chunk of cash. Would you agree Michael311? :confused: :dunno: I know a few cheap courses, but those are they losey Forest Preserve ones.

Reynolds Industrial??? Oh, man that sounds like whoever named that course was not a golfer. Sounds like golfers feel the same if it's called the Cow Pasture :)

I've got 5 or 6 within a 30 minute drive, although only half of them are really acceptable in terms of being worth the money and the time. Got a great course just across the road from me (way expensive) - just gotta figure out an easy way to jump the wire fence with my golf gear in hand ... maybe a trampoline?

You can play here almost all year round, even in the rainy season, so I guess I'm lucky. Can be kind of frosty some mornings though before the sun burns off the frost.
