Detailed description

Edgewood Valley Country Club is a Private 18 hole golf course located in La Grange, Illinois.

Edgewood Valley Country Club was founded in 1910 in La Grange, IL and moved to its current location in 1926. William Diddle, a very well known course designer during this era, designed the golf course. Significant efforts have been made over the years to maintain the unique design features he originally installed.

Edgewood Valley Country Club has 104 bunkers. The course plays longer than its yardage due to the well-bunkered and narrow fairways that wind through the tall oak trees. #3 is a short par-4 with a severe dogleg. It requires an incredibly accurate tee shot to have any chance of hitting the green. While long-hitters may have an opportunity to drive the ball over bunkers and around some of the doglegs, the key to success at Edgewood Valley lies in the greens. Placing your approach shot on the correct side of each hole and staying below the pin is the only way to succeed on their small and fast greens.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 6,711 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,819 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 5, a par-5 that plays to 578 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 4, a par-3 that plays to 146 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 5, the 578 yard par-5 challenge is the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 12, a 303 yard par-4.
