Glen Oak Country Club is a private golf course in Glen Ellyn, Illinois that was established in 1911. The 18 hole course plays 6,503 yards and par 72 with a 72.1 rating. The course features relatively small greens protected by bunkers with open fairways; it is especially notable for the extensive treeline on most holes. Danny Mulhearn is the head golf professional. The course also has a pool area for member use. On the ninth hole, there is a Halfway House to refresh the players with drinks, beverages and food. As the weather transitions from fall to winter many members change from golfing to The Skeet and Trap Club, which features a new remodeled Lodge area.

The club hosted the 1943 Women's Western Open, later designated an LPGA Tour major. It also hosted the Western Open in 1915, and Illinois Open Championship in 1962
