experience one of the only public accessible DONALD ROSS designed 18-hole championship golf courses in greater Chicago.   

Established in 1901, Calumet Country Club has a deep and long tradition in the history of Chicagoland golf.
The semi-private 18-hole championship golf course was designed by one of the most renowned architects of the 20th century, Donald Ross. Throughout the years, many of Ross’ designs have hosted major championships and/or are highly acclaimed such as Pinehurst #2, Seminole, Oak Hill, Inverness and Oakland Hills. Calumet is no exception to competition, having hosted the 1924 Western Open and the 1945 Chicago Victory Open, which was won by Byron Nelson.

COURSE Details

At par 71, and with four sets of tees, Calumet can be played from 5,015 yards up to 6,619 yards from the championship tees. Known for some of the best conditioned greens in greater Chicago, Calumet can be enjoyed by golfers of all skill levels and still offers a great test for the low handicapper.  

You can look forward to the beautifully tree lined fairways, encounter strategically placed bunkers, the meandering Cherry Creek, superb conditions, artfully crafted greens and a traditional Donald Ross design that few have had the honor of playing.  Once you’re here, it is easy to see why so many members call Calumet ‘a true golf club’.

Location is everything

Directly accessible by car or train; Calumet is situated directly east of the intersection of I-80 and I-294 providing easy access by car.  In the city? Jump on a quick 30-minute train ride from downtown. Calumet offers the unique opportunity to arrive two blocks from the course via train, and be on the course in minutes of your arrival.  Regardless of your mode of transportation, Calumet is ideally located for your next round.
