Pottawatomie course serves wide range of golf abilities

The St. Charles Park District’s Pottawatomie Golf Course is officially open for the season, meaning it’s time to hit the links. 

New this year are ‘New to the Game’ tees  for those golfers who drive the ball less than 175 yards. 

“We want everyone to enjoy the game of golf,” said PGA Golf Pro & Manager Ron Skubisz. “By creating varying levels of play, people of all ages and ability will get the opportunity for a fair and fun game,” 

Pottawatomie offers affordable pricing with a single rate for all players and a patio area complete with concessions to enjoy before or after games. 

Whether golfing once a month, once a week or even more, there are affordable rates available.

On weekends, all ages may walk nine holes for only $19.  On weekdays, adults pay $17 to walk 9 holes, while juniors (age 17 and under) and seniors (age 60 and over) pay $15.  

For more frequent players, a punch card might be the way to go.  Each punch card includes six rounds of golf any day of the week for only $75 — a significant savings for those who are frequent golfers.  

Finally for those golfers that like to play whenever possible, a season pass may be the only way to go.  A season pass includes unlimited golf, automatic tournament qualification, $2 off a riding cart rental and one complimentary ‘bring a guest’ round of golf.

The Pro Shop offers a wide selection of brand name equipment, apparel and golf accessories – all at reasonable rates. Golf clubs, pull carts and riding carts are available for rent.

Pottawatomie is a teaching course with junior golf clinics, private and group lessons and league play opportunities. It also hosts tournaments for various age groups and classifications. 

The “Little Guys and Gals”, for children age 3 to 11, kicks off the tournament season on July 15. The junior tournaments for kids ages 12 to 17 follows on July 16 & 17. While the men’s tournament for golfers 18 years and older begins on July 19 for two consecutive weekends.

Originally designed in 1939 by the pioneer of golf course architecture, Robert Trent Jones, Sr., who capitalized on the course’s location along the banks of the Fox River, it is here you will find his first island green design on hole 3. 

The  9-hole regulation golf course, certified as an Audubon Sanctuary, is among the most beautiful courses in the Fox Valley area offering scenic views with lush landscapes. 

The Park District and staff at Pottawatomie have shown a commitment to the natural environment and the wildlife living on and adjacent to the golf course. Every precaution has been taken to protect the environment and wildlife.
