Since 1917, the exquisite beauty and unique challenge of Evanston Golf Club have thrilled golfers and spectators alike. Donald Ross laid out Evanston Golf Club’s challenging 18-hole course in 1917, not long after our club moved to its current location. Ross designed hundreds of courses without being on site. With transportation a major obstacle, Ross many times would be sent a topographical map and would do his design from it. That was not the case at Evanston Golf Club, and Ross visited several times to check the course’s progress. EGC is still a Donald Ross course that has his fingerprints embedded in its 18 holes. The Jack Nicklaus group came to EGC in 1982 to head a renovation plan that would keep the integrity of the Ross design. A 2007 refresh by Ross disciple Ron Pritchard preserved the Ross design while updating our course for the modern game.
