The Lone Tree Golf Club is the centerpiece of the Lone Tree Golf Club & Hotel - a charming full service property owned by the south Suburban Parks and Recreation. It features a
45,000 square foot clubhouse with banquet facilities, 6 meeting rooms, 15 intimate guests suites, and Out of Bounds Grill with food and bar service available daily. For information

The golf facilities include an Arnold Palmer designed 18-hole championship course known for its interesting design and outstanding conditioning. There is a targeted grass range
, short game area with sand bunker, plus putting green. Clubhouse facilities feature a nicely stocked pro shop and locker rooms with showers for men and women.
The golf course features 4 sets of tees that satisfy the needs of top level players as well as resort golfers. The tips play to 7054 yards with a 139 slope, while alternate sets
measure in distance and slope 6490 yards/126 slope for men and 143 for women, 5951 yards/123 slope for men and 140 for women, and 5288 yards with a slope of 129 for
ladies hitting from the red tees. The course is well marked with sprinkler heads on the fairways plus markings on the cart paths at 100, 150 and 200 yards measured to the center
of the green (sprinkler heads also to the front). 150 yard stakes are posted on all par fours and fives, and pin placement charts are printed on the scorecards.
Water hazards come into play on 11 holes, and 54 sand bunkers are situated near the landing zones on the fairways or greenside. The terrain is extremely rolling with some mild
elevation changes from tee to green on several holes. Mounding and slopes create contours near along the fairways and scattered trees are also in play. The course meanders
through an extremely upscale residential community.
Golfers will encounter large undulating green complexes - some of them multi tiered. Many have open fronts with sand traps on one or both sides, but the bunkers really provide a
challenge off the tee, as players will frequently have to plan a course of action that includes avoiding the fairway bunkers. Our favorite hole was the long par four 6th - also the
courses' # 1 handicap. The tee shot must be positioned carefully to avoid the pond on the right, but must be close enough to provide golfers with a chance carry the hazard and
reach the green on the approach.
Lone Tree is popular for social events, business meetings and golf tournaments, and is known for its excellent service. For more info on the golf club, visit our page for the course
