The Anetsberger Golf Course is a fun, short course offering nine holes from 100 to 190 yards. The course was rebuilt in 2006 with grass tees, high-quality bent grass greens and an improved layout to allow players to have fun and improve their games. Designed by Jacobson Golf Course Design of Libertyville, the par-three course is geared toward juniors, seniors, beginners and players who want a shorter, more relaxed game.
The holes have short tees, with their own tee markers and yardages, to allow beginners and young players a chance to play an easier setup and compete with older players. Next to the first tee is a short game practice area, where players can warm up before their rounds. Two practice sand bunkers surround a large putting green, and a one-acre fairway is available for practicing pitch shots from up to 50 yards from the green.
Alongside the course, the Techny Prairie Center offers a golf shop and registration, a patio/sitting area, vending machines and restrooms. Golfers can play on a first-come, first-served basis, without the need for tee times. Although motorized carts are not used, pull carts are available.
The Anetsberger Golf Course represents the new type of affordable, easier-to-play facility. The Park District considers the course an important component of its golf program, serving seniors trying to stay active as well as young families moving into the village. An afternoon at the course can provide a family bonding experience, creating memories to last a lifetime.
When the Park District purchased the Anetsberger property, it included a par-three course, which many people in the community wanted to preserve. Adults shared their memories of learning to play there and helping their children learn the game there as well. The designers expanded the course to improve safety, allowing more space between the greens and tees and greater distances between the fairways. The course was built to high standards, with drainage and an irrigation system added to keep the course playable in many conditions.
