Prairie Bluff Golf Club, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Lockport, Illinois, less than 30 miles south of downtown Chicago.
Designed by Roger Packard and Andy North, Prairie Bluff opened for play in 1998.
Prairie Bluff is located on 237 acres of rolling terrain and is framed with prairie grass, which adds to the golf course’s overall challenge and beauty for those who play here. With four sets of tees, 10 lakes and more than 40 bunkers, golfers of all skill levels will find a good challenge. The course is a links-style layout and plays much tougher depending on wind conditions.

Watch out for # 15, a 570 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 6, a 165 yard par-3.

Good Course. Good Value on the weekday. Links inspired course, with minimal trees. Fair yet challenging design. Greens were in great shape. Good course conditioning. Can play easy, or very tough if windy.

Good course for the price. Staff is friendly. Restaurant food is very good. Bar has a good selection of drinks.Course is fair but stay out of the rough and tall grass, the only real defense for the course. Course condition from tee to green is usually very good. I ould recommend this course to play.

Prairie Bluf is one of my very favorite courses in the Chicago area. Always in good shape, it is a challenge to better golfers (I play to a + index) but from forward tees very fair for average to high index golfers. No trees with the exception of one hole where a group of trees block almost the entire fairway and a real challenge to navigate. Without trees, wind is the equalizer and it is often quite windy but generous fairways/rough don't penalize errant shots too severely because you can find it and hit it again on most holes. Greens roll true and are usually mid speed. One of the most beautiful courses in the area, with plenty of heather and wildlife from Monarch butterflies to crains and soaring hawks. Easy course to walk.

Nice basic course. Anyone can score well here. Get the pot roast sandwich. Some of the best food and beer selection in Chicago area.
