About Ivanhoe Club
The rolling terrain of the Forest Nine marks the highest topographic point in Lake County and features tight, Oak and Hickory tree lined fairways, offering the stiffest test of golf. Its two landmark 80-foot high windmills with the distinctive Ivanhoe logo can be seen for miles around. The Prairie Nine, with its grassy hillocks and beautiful waves of native Prairie grass, offer golfers a traditional links style challenge. Deep greenside bunkers, test abilities to their limits, but are balanced by the profusion of wildflowers that frame each hole like a Picasso painting.
The Marsh Nine embraces wetland wildlife; Herons, Red-winged Blackbirds, Terns and Turtles can be seen at close distance. The nine closes with a spectacular Par Four hole that features an elevated tee over Lake Ivanhoe, requiring a long, accurate shot to an island fairway, followed by a second shot over water to a heavily guarded green. Golf Magazine has named this, and Ivanhoe Club’s Forest Hole number 9, two of the prettiest finishing holes in golf.
As a supplemental challenge to all 3 courses and an additional aspect of beautification; water features are a prominent part of the Ivanhoe Golf Experience. Fifteen lakes and ponds, a manmade waterfall and countless bridges amalgamate the 27 holes. In addition, 4,000 trees frame the fairways and scores of ornamental flowerbeds feature horticulture themes which complement each particular Nine.
