Golf Course Superintendent



Lake Zurich Golf Club has, since 1895, enjoyed a vast and rich history. Lake Zurich, with a small membership on Chicago’s north side, is a course of only 2,865 yards and, according to its members, is exactly as Mr. Foulis left it over a century ago. While many of these courses no longer exist, one can see his influence on early golf as he created courses where none had previously existed. Lake Zurich Golf Club is truly a special place, we employ people who are passionate about golf, the outdoors and preserving traditions. It is their commitment to excellence that provides an unparalleled experience for our members and honored guests, and we look forward to building upon this foundation.
