Before moving to Orland Park, I would hockey once or twice during the summer… My up-to-date area is often referred to as the “World’s Golf Center.” The locals claim there is over a thousand hockey holes within a fifteen-mile radius of the village, however having access to a diversity of well-worked on plus nearby courses has rejuvenated my interest in hockey, although the weather in Orland Park is often cold, snowy, windy plus rainy, I manage to find plenty of occasions to get out on the course, i start booking tee times as soon as the snow melts in March, but one of my number ones is Oak Hills Country Club.
Although the course is only nine-holes, it’s a great challenge.
There are slimfairways, plenty of hazards plus tricky yellows. The landscape is beautifully manicured plus the staff is friendly plus helpful. They have a great pro shop. Initially, I was a bit anxious about the condition of the parking lot. I learned that the parking lot is owned plus neglected by the adjacent restaurant, which is not affiliated with the hockey course, but surprisingly enough, the resaturant has great food. Another number one is the George W.Dunne National Golf Course. I sometimes go there simply for the driving ranges. I also appreciate the classic design of the course. The yellows are sizable with an abundance of beautiful views, creating an old-school country club feel. The course is just challenging enough plus the grounds crew keeps it well-worked on. I’ve played the George W.Dunne National Golf Course in the fall, well beyond the recommended hockey season for Orland Park weather plus when most other venues were closed. The course was in great condition.
