The Chicago Golf Club is an iconic attraction that features a 3,600-acre meadow and a meadow of cottonwoods.
That’s all part of a larger plan to turn the course into a playground for the park and a natural amenity for the surrounding community.
But as much as the Chicago course has inspired millions of people to visit, it also has an ongoing history of being an issue.
In 2014, the Chicago Park District sued the developer of the golf course after the city failed to adequately protect the land and property.
At the time, the lawsuit also stated that the golf courses lack a “plan to ensure the protection of the park’s public assets.”
The lawsuit also said that the course was “pervasive, unplanned and in conflict with park policies,” and that the park is “likely to be in violation of the United States Code for any period of time.”
The Chicago Golf course has since been redesigned, and the park district has since agreed to allow golfers to use the course for their tournaments.
But a lawsuit filed in January 2018 also revealed that the Park District failed to fully understand the extent of the project, as the developer had not yet finalized plans to construct a meadows golfcourse that would accommodate the Chicago Course.
The lawsuit stated that there were no plans for a meads golf course at the site, but the developer told the Chicago Tribune that a mead garden would be built.
The Chicago Park Department responded to the lawsuit in a statement to The Verge: “The city of Chicago does not plan to pursue litigation in this matter.
The city is focused on the development of its park district as well as on continuing to work with the developer to ensure a safe and pleasant experience for golfers.”
The golf course is located on the south side of the city, in an area that is home to many of the Park district’s properties.
The golf course has a total of 12,000 acres, with about half of those lands being designated for private use, and half of the land being designated as parkland.
