Play the Onwentsia Club - a premier Northshore, private club. Three lucky players will be treated to a day of golf with carts or caddies as well as a lunch with the host member. Do not miss out on this rare opportunity to play an outstanding course.

The Onwentsia Club was founded in 1895 by a group of prominent businessmen and professionals from Chicago who were seeking a location to play golf and socialize outside the city. The original name of the club was the Lake Forest Golf Club, and it was located on a 9-hole course in Lake Forest, Illinois.

In 1896, the club purchased a 220-acre parcel of land nearby and began construction of an 18-hole golf course. The course was designed by golf course architect James Foulis, who had previously designed the Chicago Golf Club course.
