A Rich History

As we prepare to turn the big 100, we decided to take a look back at how golf at Diversey has evolved in past century. When the facility was first built in 1916, it looked drastically different than the Diversey we know today. Diversey started as a 9 Hole course, much like the present day Sydney Marovitz. The ideal location made the course very popular with locals, much like it still is today. A few years after the course initially opened, there was even a discussion about expanding the course to a full 18 hole course. The proposal would have expanded the course to the other side of present day Lake Shore Drive, and would have taken up all of the shoreline from Diversey to Belmont. Eventually, the course became downsized due to a growing surrounding community, and road construction that took place in order to accommodate the popularity of the north side neighborhoods.  

Diversey is still as popular as it was back when it opened in 1916. Our convenient location has given us an amazing opportunity to be the practice center for thousands of Chicago golfers living in the city. We are thrilled to be celebrating 100 years of golf and look forward to bringing 100 more years of golf to the local community.
