Play A Midwestern Jewel: PrairieView Golf Club

PrairieView Golf Club is a scenic gem sculpted from ancient tall grass prairie and beautiful oak savanna by renowned architect James Spear in 1992. But it plays like it has been maturing on this beautiful land for over a 100 years. Stretching over 7,000 yards from the tips, its ingeniously designed fairway, greens and tee complexes give low handicappers all they can handle while gracefully accommodating the games of young and developing golfers.

Andrew Schlupp, Head PGA Professional, PrairieView Golf Club

“I had the opportunity to watch PrairieFire Golf + Grill come to life during construction and it is spectacular. It threads the needle between small town cozy and big city sophistication. I love the way Toptracer® technology meets PrairieView’s beautiful environs in this fantastic new building. It’s going to be a huge hit with golfers in northern Illinois.”
