2018 Season Opener @ Mistwood

Chicago Season Kickoff

Saturday April 21st


At Mistwood Golf Club, owner Jim McWethy wanted to develop a new standard of excellence, excitement, and entertainment for Chicagoland golf. After a two year, multi-million dollar renovation, that standard has been realized, and Mistwood is now one of the most talked Chicago golf courses!

Recently sweeping the national award season, Mistwood Gold Club was selected as Golf Magazine’s “Renovation of the Year,” one of Golf Digest’s “Best New Course,” and one of Golf Range Magazine’s “Top 50 Public Ranges”!

Designed and renovated by course designer Ray Hearn, Mistwood Golf Club features 20 St. Andrews-style sod-wall bunkers, truly bringing a feeling of Scotland to the Midwest. Additionally, Mistwood has five tee placements per hole, with the ability to now play over 7,000 yards.

Part of the recent renovation also included the construction of a brand new 5,000 square foot Performance Center at the foot of our driving range that offers custom fitting, club repair services, and lessons. Construction of a new Scottish-style 26,000 square foot clubhouse is currently underway, and will be complete in the summer of 2015, truly making Mistwood out to be one of the best golf courses in Illinois.
