Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course
Golf is a deeply frustrating, yet oddly addicting game. You can hook, shank or slice nearly every shot in a round, but the ringing sound of that one well-hit ball will keep you coming back. The best place to satisfy your golfing jones in the city is the Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course. With three holes right on the lake, Marovitz is the crown jewel of Chicago Park District golf. Friendly and forgiving to beginners, juniors and women, there is no better place to get in nine holes on a beautiful day in Chicago, especially when the beverage cart is roaming the course.
