Waldorf Astoria Chicago is nestled in the heart of the city’s Gold Coast neighborhood, and while the city has miles of uninterrupted public beachfront property, getting to a great golf course often requires a trek outside of the city. The closest municipal course is the Sydney R. Marovitz, located north of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel on Lake Michigan (though the course only has nine holes). If you’re looking for a full 18-hole course in the city, you’ll have to go quite a bit south to the Jackson Park Golf Course, located at 63rd Street and Lake Shore Drive (a 25- to 35-minute drive from the luxury Chicago hotel).
For those who just want to hit a few balls, the Diversey Driving Range is a lovely facility that faces Lake Michigan just north of Lincoln Park.
