Located approximately 8 miles southwest of downtown Chicago, La Grange Country Club was established in 1899 and moved to its present location in 1913 after outgrowing its original Herbert Tweedie-designed 9-hole course.
The "new" 18-hole course was designed with a routing of outer and inner nines by Tom Bendelow and William Langford and underwent an early new millennium renovation by Brian Silva to upgrade the layout to modern standards.
The club hosted the U.S. Women’s Open in 1974 and 1981, won by Sandra Haynie and Pat Bradley respectively.
LGCC is honestly a really fun little club. It sits on a tiny piece of land but features a really cool Langford Moreau routing. Most of the original sloping Langford greens have been retained and although the course is heavily treelined, many of the original bunkers are still present. My favorite holes include the strategic second that plays over a diagonal creek and a green that has an awesome restored kicker, along with the three tiered par three ninth, that was always a testy shot with friends looking on as we closed up high school matches.
