George Dunne National Golf Course
16310 Central Avenue, Oak Forest
Hole: 11
Par: 5
Men’s Tees (Yards): Gold 538, Blue 514, Yellow 472
Men’s Handicap: 2
Women’s Tee (Yards): Red 385
Women’s Handicap: 2
This par five requires a solid drive over the first pond and generally requires you to lay up in front of the second pond for a short iron into the green. If you can hit straight at the green off the tee then you might be able to go for it in two. Another boomerang shaped green means you need a fairly accurate shot.

Ravisloe Golf Club
18231 South Park Avenue, Homewood
Hole: 4
Par: 3
Men’s Tees (Yards): Black 181, Silver 150
Men’s Handicap: 13
Women’s Tee (Yards): Gold 140
Women’s Handicap: 13
This hole requires an accurate long iron tee shot to a narrow elevated undulated green. Deep pot-bunkers surround this elevated green and will kick any errant tee shots into a difficult up and down situation for even the most skilled of players.

Glenwoodie Golf Club
19301 State Street, Glenwood
Hole: 16
Par: 4
Men’s Tees (Yards): Black 467, Blue 420
Men’s Handicap: 1
Women’s Tee (Yards): Red 369
Women’s Handicap: 1
Big valley requires the toughest approach shot on the Southside. Out of bounds on the right hand-side, tree line down the left-hand side requires a right centered fairway shot.

University Golf Club
23520 South Crawford Avenue, University Park
Hole: 16
Par: 5
Men’s Tees (Yards): Black 623, Gold 600, Silver 532
Men’s Handicap: 2
Women’s Tees (Yards): Bronze 488
Women’s Handicap: 2
With winds approaching from the southwest, it becomes humanly impossible to reach the green in two, at times the long hitters have mid to long irons into the green on their third shots.

Odyssey Golf Course
19111 South Oak Park Avenue, Tinley Park
Hole: 16
Par: 5
Men's Tees (Yards): Gold 526, Blue 500, White 473
Men's Handicap: 2
Women's Tee (Yards): Red 450
Women's Handicap: 5
A par five featuring a dogleg left and an island green...need we say more? Big hitters will enjoy this risk/reward hole.

Silver Lake Country Club
14700 South 82nd Avenue, Orland Park
Hole: 8 (South Course)
Par: 4
Men’s Tees (Yards): Blue 417, White 390, Gold 300
