Under the guidance of a PGA professional, the Skokie Park District offers classes (at right), lessons, clinics and camps for golfers of all ages, at both Skokie Sports Park and the Weber Park Golf Course.
Weber Park Golf Course is the perfect place to learn to golf or to finetune your short game. The course is also home to the game of FootGolf, a golf and soccer hybrid sport with giant holes and a very small learning curve. Located behind the Skatium Ice Arena on the northwest side of Skokie, this 9-hole, par-3 course features bent grass greens, beautiful landscaping, a concession area, and even babysitting inside the adjacent Weber Leisure Center.
Skokie Sports Park is rated one of the top 50 golf ranges in America and features a year-round, two-tier, year-round, 40-station golf range with an automatic tee-up system and target greens. Instead of buying a bucket of balls, golfers purchase a debit card. Just insert the card, watch your ball appear from under the floor, and swing away! Sports Park is also home to two mini adventure golf courses, Traveler’s Quest and Kid’s Quest, as well as modern outdoor batting cages.
