The Course

Sydney R. Marovitz is nestled between Lake Shore Drive and the shores of Lake Michigan offering nine holes, with an amazing view.
Reclaimed from the waters of Lake Michigan, this lakefront property opened in 1932 as Waveland Golf Course. Renamed in 1991 as Sydney R. Marovitz, this lakeside course is nestled between Lake Shore Drive and the shores of Lake Michigan.

These nine holes of golf are all orientated parallel to the lake, offering unparalleled views of the water, multiple harbors, and the skyscrapers of downtown Chicago. Mature trees, an on-going renovation of the sand traps, and immaculate greens all offer a challenge to all skill levels.
