Enjoy golf for three at the Exmoor Country Club in Highland Park, Illinois.

Those who play the Exmoor course today will experience what golf enthusiasts 100 years ago called “an atmosphere” — a sense — a feeling — of Old World style, of visually interesting holes, a mix of short par fours and uphill ones that seem like par fives, of lakes and long grasses, of holes that require creative shot making, and a course routing with a natural flow  — one hole to another — over both wooded and open terrain, delivering, all in all, a round of golf that is fun, enjoyable and ever challenging.

The Club has promoted tournament golf at the highest competitive level, hosting 18 national championships since 1903 – all organized with the United States Golf Association, the Western Golf Association, the Women’s Western Golf Association and the PGA of America. In 2018, they hosted Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship, a major professional event.
