Play a piece of history at the Belmont Golf Club
SITE OF AMERICA’S FIRST 18-HOLE GOLF COURSE.
In 1892, Charles Blair Macdonald, the grandfather of American golf, designed the first nine holes west of the Allegheny Mountains in Downers Grove, Illinois, at Belmont Road. At this original site of the Chicago Golf Club, Macdonald designed nine more holes for the course in 1893, making it the first 18-hole course in the United States.
Today, the Belmont Golf Club is a scenic 9-hole par 36 course featuring mature trees, natural areas, elevation and water hazards. A driving range with 24 hitting stations, a practice putting green, sand trap and chipping area includes a 10-station covered shelter.
