Bloomingdale Golfers Club is a par-72 course open to the general public on weekdays only. It is both beautiful and challenging, with five sets of tees. The greens are as quick as you'll find in the area and have a number of subtle breaks. The course is very long from the raccoon tees at 7,165 yards. Distances from the other sets of tees are more moderate, with the whites at 6,038 yards, greens at 6,386 yards and blues at 6,651 yards. Soft spikes only.
This solid public layout, at par 72 and 5922 yards from the middle tees, is just what you'd expect from a good public course. The holes aren't terribly long and the course will yield a good score if played with any precision at all. There is sand, and some water, but the hazards aren't confrontational. Rogers Park Golf Course's greens are reasonably flat and the course is normally in decent shape for a public track. This is a public golf course. Metal spikes are tolerated, but not encouraged.
