About Us:

Tucked into the heart of a scenic residential neighborhood in Evanston and Wilmette, we’re an 18-hole, par 60 course suitable for golfers of all skill levels and ages. Fondly known locally as “Canal Shores” and operated by the not-for-profit Evanston-Wilmette Golf Course Association, the golf course is looking terrific this year–come check us out!

Since 1919, Canal Shores has offered a fun, affordable, and unique golf experience. Whether you are a beginner just learning the game or a more experienced golfer with limited time, we know you’ll enjoy our course! Our 3,612 yards are narrow and tree-lined and feature two signature over-the-water holes. As you criss-cross between the 11 holes in Evanston and 7 in Wilmette, you’ll see why so many golfing memories have started here!

We’re conveniently located next to the Central Street El, just blocks away from the Central Street Metra stop, and offer free parking.
