Settler's Hill Golf Course
Settler's Hill Golf Course temporarily closed
Settler's Hill Golf Course is closed for the 2021 golf season. The District is in the process of adding $6.8 million worth of improvements, including:
- Renovation of the 18-hole course
- State of the art, on-demand irrigation system
- New driving range/practice area
- New four-hole short-course learning center
The present location of the Settler's Hill Golf Course is on the site of the old County Farm and Home. In 1969, the Kane County Board decided to close the facility because of the deteriorating buildings and equipment, plus the high cost of pay for 15 employees. The Home site itself had several buildings, the home, administration building, power plant, maintenance building, corn crib and dairy barn, plus other out-structures such as machine sheds and animal shed, but the only ones that still exist are the power house, maintenance building, corn crib and the dairy barn. The dairy barn was remodeled and is currently used as a club house. The corn crib and the maintenance building are used to store equipment for use on the course.
