Foxford Hills Golf Club occupies land that once housed a mink farm. The course arguably has 18 signature holes, and it was conceived that way. The developer and original owner, Town & Country Homes, allocated the site’s choicest acreage for the golf course. Then came the creation of a memorable sequence of golf holes, each a unique experience unto itself, each an integral part of the whole. Although Foxford Hills is the centerpiece of a residential development, homes are visible only sporadically…reflecting the strategic placement of the golf course amidst the natural beauty of the McHenry County Conservancy District’s protected woods and wetlands. It’s also a testament to the finesse and creativity that went into course design.
Now owned by the Cary Park District, Foxford Hills has been operated by GolfVisions since its inception. Consistency has paid dividends. Explains General Manager John Miles, "At Foxford Hills, we pursue excellence all day, every day. We always focus on quality and aim high. We try to exceed expectations and ensure our guests are happier when they leave than when they arrive."
Foxford Hills Golf Club is a spectacular 18-hole, par-72, 7,023-yard championship golf course located in Cary, Illinois and owned by the Cary Park District. The first six holes are relatively wide open, with expansive greens, spacious, undulating fairways, and discrete water and wetlands. The look is windswept and coastal; you almost expect to hear the muted thunder of the ocean and cries of gulls. Many of the next 12 holes, especially the back nine, meander up and down hills framed by mature hardwood trees. Sixty distinctive MacKenzie-style bunkers populate the course. The flavor is vintage Carolina…the conditioning, consistent with what you’d find at elite private clubs.
Recipient of a four-star rating from Golf Digest in 2008, Foxford Hills lives up to its reputation with seven of Chicagoland golf's best finishing holes.
