Thunderhawk Golf Club

Beach Park, IL

Thunderhawk Golf Club is the first golf club in Illinois to be designated as a “Signature Sanctuary” by Audubon International. The clubhouse is designed to reflect the rustic elegance of a national park lodge and includes a 220-person banquet wing alongside a golf pro shop, locker rooms and a 40-seat casual bar/lounge. A below-grade cart storage facility allows for the golf staff to operate with ideal efficiency.

A favorite place for golf patrons is the outdoor terrace adjacent to the bar and overlooking the 8th green. This Robert Trent Jones II-designed golf course has consistently been recognized as one of the “Top Public Courses” on a state and national level. Additional features include a 7,200 square foot Turf Care Center and Golf Rain and Restroom Shelters.
