La Grange Country Club is a private golf club in La Grange, Illinois, a suburb southwest of Chicago.

Founded 118 years ago in 1899 and designed by Herbert J. Tweedie[1] as a nine-hole golf course, the club relocated to its present location in 1913 and was expanded to 18 holes. It hosted the U.S. Women's Open, an LGPA major championship, in 1974 and 1981,[2] and underwent a major renovation in 2001.
