A Very Special Place

Conway Farms Golf Club opened for play on August 3, 1991. The Tom Fazio award-winning course sits on 209 acres in Lake Forest, Illinois and is designed around the traditions of Scottish links golf. Conway is dedicated to the protection and preservation of the game of golf, encouraging walking, fast play, and the strong support of amateur golf. Our Founders and others who participated in the initial development of Conway Farms Golf Club were guided by sustaining golf's oldest and finest traditions.
