Who’s ready to polish their golf game? Or, if you’re like me, poised to scrub some of the rust off after years of neglect? Spring is here and I’m very blessed to have been given the opportunity to work with another family business with a multi-generational legacy in sharing their unique story.
Zigfield Troy Golf is located just down the road on 75th Street in Woodridge (1535 W. 75th Street). Back in the 1930s, Zigfield Troy Golf was born of the vision of a Chicago South-Sider by the name of Zigfield Troy. He opened his first driving range in his teens and spent his whole life making the game of golf affordable and accessible to all. In Zigfield’s own words, he wanted to create a “Poor Man’s Country Club”. Over the years, Zigfield Troy and his family became familiar names in the PGA as both members and professionals. Today, the legacy continues year-round at Zigfield Troy Golf where you’ll find an outdoor and covered/heated driving range, a 9-hole precision Par 3 course, a staff of PGA Member Professionals for individual/group lessons, a full service Pro Shop, professional club assessment/fitting/repair, a Jr. Golf Program for kids during the Summer, the Annual Zigfield Troy Open Tournament (last weekend in June), putting/chipping practice greens and more. In other words, most everything you would expect to find at a private country club, but far less expensive and open to the general public year-round.
In a nutshell, there’s something for golfers of all levels and families where you can enjoy the game of golf without spending an entire day playing 18 holes. Green fees range from $7 – $12, they have family buckets of range balls and will even provide you with some clubs to hit if you don’t have them.
There is also a vacation-style miniature golf course by the name of Lost Mountain Adventure Golf as part of the facility. So, the whole family can come along and have an memorable time.

We are indeed very lucky to live in an area where inspiring and extraordinary family stories are so commonplace. SM
