From the moment golfers step up to the first tee at Blackthorn Golf Club, until well after their round of championship golf is completed, they enjoy resort-style service.

The Irish-cottage style clubhouse and 18-hole course, designed by Dr. Michael Hudzan, is set upon a rolling wooded site of 226 acres. Broad fairways, framed by 94 bunkers, wetlands, ponds, and native prairie grasses,  lead to subtly contoured and swept-up bent grass greens.

Located just 90 minutes from downtown Chicago and home for the past nine (9) years to the Four Winds Invitational/LPGA Symetra Tour, this spectacular course lives up to the high accolades it has earned.

Honors like “4 ½ stars in Places to Play” by Golf Digest, Among the “Top 100 Women-Friendly Golf Courses,” by Golf For Women Magazine, “No. 1 Best Municipal Golf Course in Indiana” — GOLFWEEK Magazine, 2009 and “No. 39 Best Municipal Golf Course in the U.S.” — GOLFWEEK Magazine, 2009.
