Halfway House indoor golf owner Susan Phillips, hopes you will bring your clubs and your favorite foursome and try out the simulators.

If your hungry or need a beverage while teeing it up at Halfway House Golf, the good news is that all of that can be brought right over from HB Jones.

So why not enjoy the indoor concept of golf.

How it works. When you gather around the table behind your simulator with your group, it’s almost like going bowling. Gather around the alley,let everyone take their shot and then it’s your turn again.

Scoring, you don’t even need to worry. The simulator does it all, so when your not hitting, enjoy the conversation with family and friends. Check out the game on the TV’s all around you, enjoy your burger, beer and other treats. Not a beer drinker, the freshly made malts look really tasty and the junior golfers in your group will enjoy them.


Multiple groups are enjoying the golf, and more at the Halfway House.

If you want to play local courses, you can jump on and play Dubsdread or Course #4 at Cog Hill in Lemont.

Want to play a U.S Open course. You can do that because there are several, like Pinehurst No.2, Bethpage Black, Pebble Beach. When your done at Pebble Beach, dial up Spyglass Hill that sits just down the street from Pebble Beach out in Carmel.

So if your ready for a winter golf workout, go hit some balls in the dome, then head over for your match with friends at the Halfway House on York Road in Elmhurst. Part of the DB Jones Restaurant. Play solo, or bring a partner or a foursome or more, anyway amount of players will be fun.
