Canal Shores Golf Course

Evanston, Illinois | 18 holes | Par: 60 | 3904 yards

A beloved local course just down the street from Northwestern University, one might say that nostalgia fills the waterway that runs down the middle of the Canal Shores. Since 1919, locals have enjoyed this affordable, well-conditioned, 4000 yard Par 60 Executive layout in the heart of their community. With its shorter length yet challenging greens it is equally enjoyable and playable for the beginner or seasoned player. It was formerly known as Evanston-Wilmette/Peter Jans Golf Course.
