After One Full Season of Growth and Recovery, Crane’s Landing Golf Course Opens This April * with 50 Acres of Fresh Turf, New Public Programming, New Membership Options, and More

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. (Mar. 25, 2019) – With spring on the horizon in the Midwest, Crane’s Landing Golf Course (Crane’s Landing) at the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort, is pleased to announce its official opening this April* as well as 50 acres of new turf, engaging programming and new offers for golfers, families and visitors to Chicagoland.

“Crane’s Landing Golf Course has been a staple in Chicagoland’s North Shore area since 1975. With roughly 50 acres of new turf planted in the fall of 2017 after the Des Plaines river flood, and now having had one full season to fill in, 2019 stands to be a very good year for the course,” said E.J. Bertke, director of golf and PGA Apprentice at Crane’s Landing. “And while the new turf presents a beautiful new landscape for ease of play, it’s the course’s fun and challenging layout that has kept golfers coming back for nearly 50 years,” continues Bertke.

Golf enthusiasts can anticipate the following at Crane’s Landing this season:

April* Opening: Crane’s Landing celebrates opening month with a $25 weekday rate, which includes a cart rental during the month of April.
Friday, August 2: Lincolnshire Marriott Resort’s annual Children’s Miracle Network golf outing welcomes all golfers to join a foursome to enjoy a day of golf at Crane’s Landing and raise money for the children’s charity.
New Membership Rates: Crane’s Landing is offering a wide array of new membership rates and structures to choose from. Some new options include a resort membership that include savings in all areas of the resort, a hole in one membership that includes a Callaway Wedge or Odyssey Putter for new members and a personalized locker, the eagle membership that includes 14 day advance reservations, twilight membership with a seven day advance reservation, and a junior golf membership for $450 per individual for those aged 17 and younger that includes green fees for the entire 2019 golf season.
Golf Clinics: Golf clinics will take place throughout the season and be posted on the golf course’s website.
Pro Shop and Clubhouse: The Pro shop is fully stocked with the latest golf attire for men and women, along with a vast array of the newest Callaway golf equipment.
“The par three ninth hole is still as picturesque as ever running parallel with the Des Plaines River, and the tranquil ‘triangle’ that consists of holes 14, 15, and 16 is still as quiet, peaceful, and a fantastic homestretch to finishing your round of golf,” said Bertke.

Crane’s Landing is open seven days a week from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. More information and bookings can be made by calling E.J. Bertke at 847-478-6643 or visiting www.craneslandinggolf.com.
