Joe Louis "The Champ" named after Prize fighter Joe Louis, is a tournament favorite because of its championship layout. A challenging course to begin with, the signature 614 yard, par five 7th hole (the second longest par five in the Chicagoland area) as well as "The Champ’s” large undulating greens raise the stakes. Joe Louis has three sets of tees, 52 sand traps and occasional water. Routed deep in Chicago’s history, you’ll find "The Champ” to be a formidable foe just as the former Heavyweight Champion of the World himself did during the many rounds he played here.
