I’ve golfed at both of these courses and the thought of them becoming one big 18 hole golf course sounds pretty cool to me!
Crains Chicago Business says that the Chicago Park District wants to combine the South Shore and Jackson Park Golf Courses along Lake Michigan into one.
Their hope is that it would then draw PGA level events to the new combined course.
Not everybody’s on board with the idea though.
Some in the area think there’s better ways to invest in the community and now the Friends of The Parks people have gotten involved.
If you remember, Friends of The Park fought George Lucas about building his museum along the Lakefront. He eventually decided against Chicago and will build the museum near Los Angeles.
