Wilmette Golf Course Addtional Information & History

Wilmette Golf Course: Located in Wilmette, Illinois, the18-hole Wilmette Golf Course sits on what was originally the site of a dairy farm. In 1922, three men—one of them, its designer, Joseph Roseman—bought the land and transformed it into what was then known as Playmore Golf Club. An inventor, Roseman is credited with the invention of the hollow roller mower. In 1924, Playmore became the Wilmette Golf Course. A master plan developed by Dick Nugent has served as the course's guide for numerous recent improvements. Today’s Wilmette Golf Course offers just enough water and bunkers to encourage a strategic game of golf. The narrow fairways are very close to mature elms and oaks, but the greens are recognized as some of the fastest in the area, so putting is a pleasure. Wilmette Golf Course offers four sets of tees to assure a challenging game of golf for players of all skill levels. Wilmette prides itself on its accessibility to the public. The course offers both resident and nonresident memberships, but there is generally public play availability for golfers looking for a reasonably priced game of golf.
