Chicago Golf Club – 1946 – 2015

Chicago Golf Club

Getting these two images to work with each other was a struggle. For some reason I couldn’t get the 1946 aerial to line up on the 2015/16 aerial similar to what I had done for Shoreacres and Sand Hills Golf Club. Each time I had one point on the golf course lined up, another would skew.  I cursed quite a bit at it, but still want to share the aerial image.

2015/16 Aerial

Aerial image of the Chicago Golf Club taken around 2015/16. The colors help define the course better then the black and white photo, but it also helps as a guide when looking at the 1946 image (click to enlarge).

At first glance, much of the routing is unchanged and a bunker or two were added. It also looks like the pond may have had a minor reshape, but the old imagery makes it tough to confirm.

If you see anything else that sticks out, let me know.
