Join the Winnetka Men's Golf Club

Why Join the Winnetka Men's Golf Club?

We like to play golf. Some of our golf is competitive, some is just to play. Our goal is to have fun.  We have weekly events, season long match play competitions, periodic interclub matches and a Thursday Night League. Members tend to stay around after golf and socialize.

With the golf course now under renovation (target completion date is August 2024), we have developed an approach to keep the Men's Club active until the renovation is complete.
