Year the renovation work was completed: 2022

Enhancements made to practice facility during recent renovations:

Deerpath Golf Course, in partnership with the Friends of Lake Forest Parks and Recreation Foundation, the Wadsworth Golf Charities Foundation, and KemperSports, broke ground on The Lawn, a community asset with a welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere dedicated to serving golfers from all areas, including the residents of Lake Forest, in July 2021. This free-to-use greenspace covers more than 30,000 square feet, consisting of a world-class bentgrass putting and chipping experience providing practice options for both novice and avid players alike. Deerpath Golf Course is one of the only municipally owned facilities to feature such a world-class amenity, making the course a destination for golfers across the Chicagoland area and beyond. The Lawn, and its designer Todd Quinto, were inspired by the public-access Ladies’ Putting Course in St. Andrews, Scotland and renowned putting courses such as The Punchbowl at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, The Gauntlet at Streamsong Resort, and Thistle Due at Pinehurst Resort. The Lawn’s impressive footprint offers an 18-hole putting course and three-hole chipping course and is surrounded by a 15-foot chipping fairway surface and synthetic practice tee stations. Players of all ages and skill levels enjoy the green’s challenging variety of hills, dales, and swales. The Lawn opened July of 2022, The Lawn has already catered to many outings and events in the first four months it has been open. The Lawn complements the existing Deerpath facilities that the city has invested in over recent years, including the updated clubhouse and the course itself.

How the recent practice facility renovations have positively impacted business:

We have seen a large increase in people coming to the course to just practice and it has increased Food and Beverage sales also. Guests love the 30,000SF puting green the lawn along with the range at Deerpath!
