  • Just Golf for Rookies!

    We are once again offering the Just Golf for Rookies program for our members! The intention is to provide a 90 minute free lesson to our beginner golfers once a month and then follow that up with a 9 hole round of golf with more experienced golfers to assist in course management instruction.

    Similar to last year, the lesson provided by Trev Williams will be at Reidy’s Tee Time Golf Range, 1400 Maple Ave., Lisle at 10 am on Sundays for the following dates: May 18th, June 30th, July 28th, August 11th, and September 15th. You pay $12 for a large bucket of balls prior to the lesson.  

    For those wishing to play 9 holes at River Bend Golf Course, 5900 South IL 53, Lisle, meet at noon on the same lesson dates. The cost of the 9 hole round is $24 walking or $34 with cart for non-Lisle residents.
