Olympia Fields CC - South - Olympia Fields, IL
The South Course at Olympia Field's, originally the club's no. 1 course, was designed in 1915 by Tom Bendelow of Aberdeen. Tom has also designed other classic courses such as Medinah No. 3 and Atlanta Athletic Club. The course offers up some pretty good elevation changes for midwestern topography and is a great option for those not playing the more acclaimed North Course.
In 2007, it was renovated by Steve Myers which earned honors as the 2nd best course renovation in 2010. As a sister course to a US Open venue, this is one of the stronger courses I have played in that category. If you only come for the North Course and leave, you are missing out on some great golf.
