Top 3 Reasons We Love Balmoral Woods Golf Course

In 2017, HITS and ShowPlace Productions will partner to bring world-class showjumping competitions to the Midwest in Crete, Illinois. We’ve already talked about the rich history of the horse park and even given you a first look at the facilities. Recently, we travelled to Balmoral Park and explored Crete, trying to discover which restaurant would be our go-to after a busy day of showing.

We’re always looking for ways to unwind, so we’re thrilled Balmoral Woods Golf Course, a top-rated course in the Chicagoland area, is directly across the street from the horseshow facilities. Here are a few reasons you might be tempted to visit Balmoral Park even when there isn’t a horseshow in town.

3. One of the Best Chicagoland Public Golf Facilities

Balmoral Woods is a top public golfing facility, with no membership required to play the demanding round of golf the course offers. Local tournaments turn to Balmoral Woods thanks to the staff’s attention to detail and the superb conditioning of the course and the location has been home to state as well as local tournaments. Locals value the course so much that every year, the Will County Amateur Championship is hosted at Balmoral Woods.

2. Affordable pricing and flexible hours

Whether an exhibitor or spectator, Balmoral Woods makes it easy to slip away to play a few holes and then return to the show ring. Golf packages include pricing for a full day of golf, a half day, or a few hours in the afternoon. A full day and 18 holes of golf, plus a golf cart rental, will cost only $44. If you’re under 21, we suggest taking advantage of Balmoral Woods’ junior “Age Is Your Rate Greens Fees,” ideal for someone learning to love the sport for the first time. Booking tee times is easy – go directly to their website to book a tee time and view the weather forecast for that day.

1. Location, location, location

We’re not exaggerating when we say the horseshow facilities are right across the street from the golf course. Exhibitors who love to golf will have no problem slipping away to practice their swing and family members of riders can stay busy all day without having to worry about missing their favorite athlete’s trip in the ring. Lovingly cared for and an integral part of the local community, the Balmoral Woods golf course and its proximity to the facilities is truly an asset to HITS exhibitors. We have no doubt that its rolling greens and charming clubhouses will quickly become an oasis for horseback riders of all levels.
