Joe Louis The Champ Golf Course
Joe Louis The Champ Golf Course
Named after Prize fighter Joe Louis, Riverdale's Joe Louis "The Champ" golf course is a tournament favorite because of its championship layout. A challenging course to begin with, the signature 614 yard, par five 7th hole (the second longest par five in the Chicagoland area) as well as "The Champ's" large undulating greens raise the stakes. Joe Louis has three sets of tees, 52 sand traps and occasional water. Routed deep in Chicago's history, you'll find "The Champ" to be a formidable foe just as the former Heavyweight Champion of the World himself did during the many rounds he played here. The Joe Louis Driving Range, which has 40 lighted stalls, is located across the street from the course. Why not come by early and get some practice in before your round. As with all FPG courses an on staff pro is always available to help you strengthen your game.  Book tee times below!
