Elliot Golf Course was designed by Thomas Bendelow, who also designed the famous #3 course at Medinah Country Club in Chicago.
This wooded 18-hole course with narrow fairways and gently rolling terrain offers 6,107 challenging yards on its par 71 course. Opened in 1922, it is named for Lt. Clayton Ingersoll, who lost his life in an air crash over France in World War I. This course is located on Rockford’s far west side and was selected by the Tiger Woods Foundation to host Tiger Woods for a two-day golf clinic in 2001 and 2004.
Dedicated in 2004, Ingersoll Learning Links four-hole course and practice center is adjacent to the clubhouse. The Learning Links is the perfect place for families and children of all ages to have fun playing the game of golf. It features holes ranging from 60 yards to 105 yards (when played with regular golf balls). Adults can level the playing field for a more competitive experience by using Cayman or “Almost Golf” balls to lengthen the Learning Links.
