Exmoor Country Club
With a history dating back to 1896, Exmoor Country Club is one of the most storied clubs in the greater Chicago area. Exmoor was one of 11 charter clubs that established the Western Golf Association in 1899. Since 1903, the club has hosted 18 national championships.
Exmoor offers strategic challenges that test every aspect of a player’s game, with broad fairways that pinch to doglegs, some greens with open run-ups, others with false fronts, and all greens with contours offering multiple options for pin placements. Solidly struck shots to the hearts of the greens are rewarded, but shots to the edges of greens may run off to collection areas.
