Sunset Ridge Country Club

Northfield, Illinois



The 2018 Western Amateur Championship will be played at Sunset Ridge Country Club in Northfield, Illinois, July 30 - August 4.

Sunset Ridge Country Club was designed by golf course architect William Diddel in 1923 and renovated by Rick Jacobson in 2004-05.  After the renovation 2004-05, Sunset Ridge was awarded the 2006 Private Club Golf Course renovation of the Year by Golf, Inc. magazine. For over forty years, Sunset Ridge was the last private club on Chicago's North Shore to host the Western Open, now known as the BMW Championship, in 1972.

Sunset Ridge features tight fairways and fast, pure bent grass greens.  Shot placement is critical in order to score and it is always wise to stay below the pin on the greens.  The 18 hole layout stretches just under 6800 yards from the Championship tees.
