Experience JR Golf in Illinois with the HJGT
Illinois is home to the oldest, 18 hole golf course in the United States, founded by course designer Charles B. Macdonald. As a state with a long-standing tradition of golf, especially in cities such as Chicago, young golfers have every reason to test themselves on the best that Illinois has to offer.
The HJGT hosts a number of events throughout the year in Illinois with many of them concentrated in the Chicagoland area. Junior golfers will enjoy the course variety, city backdrops, or cooling lake breezes on their journey to the top of the scorecard.
