Welcome to Silver Lake Country Club in Orland Park.

SILVER LAKE COUNTRY CLUB that has been family owned for years, is now for sale.

Golf on the clubs 45 holes could be coming to an end, with the demand for suburban housing soaring as residents are fleeing the city of Chicago.

The 300 acre club located at 14700 S. 82nd Avenue in Orland Park, is listed on the Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL) real estate website. But an invitation is required to view the property through JLL.

But even if the club’s sale moved forward quickly. It’s expected that it could be two years before any redevelopment could take place. Amy Coghill whose family own’s the club, spoke with the Orland Park Patch saying,” it was just time,” and the family is open to all possibilities moving forward. But Coghill expects golf to continue through at least 2021 and 2022.

But industry experts say that a developer could pay over $10 million for the entire property. Because of it’s location and the current home values in Orland Park.

Currently Silver Lake has 45 holes. Two 18 hole courses (North course and South course) with a shorter nine hole course. Silver Lake for years has been popular with groups looking to hold golf outings. But the club has been a popular site for weddings and other social gatherings.
