A Master Plan to restore and renovate the course has been done by talented local architect Todd Quitno. It includes a devoted youth golf teaching area – with a short course course and putting lawn – and updates to the 18 holes with designs influenced by historic and famed green complexes. 

A leading course construction firm based in Illinois, Wadsworth Construction is dedicated to delivering the architect’s vision with uncompromised quality yielding a course that can withstand the test of time and provide enjoyment to all golfers.

At the CDGA, we believe that together we are “Better Through Golf.” We create opportunities for everyone to experience the benefits of the game, including through therapeutic and recreational Outreach Programs that serve individuals with special needs, youth and veterans.


Youth Development

The Western Golf Association and Evans Scholars Foundation have committed to creating programming and work opportunities by funding a caddie academy at Canal Shores. The program will introduce local kids to caddying and the game of golf. Through this job, they will earn money,  learn life lessons and ultimately have the chance to apply for the Evans Scholarship, a full tuition and housing grant to college. 

First Tee – Greater Chicago enables kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges utilizing the game of golf as its platform. They are committed to create learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence and resilience that kids carry to everything they do.
