The fantastic finishing holes on the Port Course include the famed par 3 #15 "Anchor Hole" immediately followed by three holes bordering the harbor waters of Lake Calumet.
Golfweek Magazine ranks the Port Course as the #47 "Best Municipal Course" in the United States and the 14th Best Course You Can Play in the state of Illinois.
While still a fair test for all skill levels, the Port Course proudly hosted the SBC Senior Open, a PGA Champions TOUR event in 2002. Bob Gilder defeated former U.S. Open Champion Hale Irwin in a playoff to secure victory. During that event, the Port Course received the ultimate compliment when two time Masters Champion Ben Crenshaw compared this Chicago gem to Muirfield, the host of several Open Championships.
