Illinois Golf Information
Seven years later, in 1900, Harry Vardon won
the US Open at the Chicago Golf Club, which
was the first professional tournament held in
Illinois. And in 1925, Jackson Park's course
on Chicago's south side was named the "world's
busiest golf course," with a total of 59,843
June, July, and August are automatic golfing
months; in May and September, your odds are
pretty good in terms of getting good weather;
and beyond that, your guess is as good as anyone
else's. However, it's not uncommon to see diehards
on the links as early as March and as late as
November. Also, as you travel downstate (and
away from Chicago), the warmer it gets. Springfield,
the state capital, is more mild than Chicago
is, with an average monthly temperature that's
about four degrees warmer.
Spring in Illinois has pretty much turned into
an extended winter, as the average high temperature
in March and April is 46 and 59, respectively.
From May through August, the average high ranges
from 70 to 84, with average lows from 51 to
66. Rainfall isn't generally a problem, as the
average monthly precipitation is generally between
3.5 and 4.0 inches during the summer months.
