At the heart of any great country club lies a golf course of incomparable charm and challenge, one that engages golfers at every level of consciousness. Preeminent architect Austin Clayssens designed such a golf course at Glen Flora. Established in 1911 and set among 125 exquisite acres in the serenity ofChicago's North Shore, the vision for the property was developed into a par 70, 6,420-yard championship layout. The golf course is the centerpiece of Glen Flora, and it has been carefully sculpted to embrace the essence of a membership beholding the ideals of the great game at this golf course.
The Big Three (Pictured Above Right): In 1963, the premier professional golfers of their time, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player faced off in a two-day match before a crowd of spectators at Glen Flora. Gary Player, the only competitor under par, won the winner-take-all $50,000 prize!
