Lynx Golf Course is now open in Westlake Village

PECATONICA, Ill. (WTVO/WQRF) – If you’re a golfer, there’s another course in the area you can play on. The Lynx Golf Course opened Saturday in Westlake Village.

This is the new name for the old Westlake Village golf course near Pecatonica. The old course closed four years ago.

Brothers Steve and Scott Leathers took it over and made many improvements to the golf course and clubhouse, including a large back patio.

Steve Leathers says they will continue to make incremental improvements to the course over the next four years. He is committed to making it work.

“I’m a huge golf advocate, and I have a lot of friends who live in Westlake Village, and I found out it’s been closed since 2018. I’ve heard a lot of things that went right or wrong. didn’t go well. things as successful as they were, and so we took the opportunity to say okay, let’s bring them back. The best thing for us is that we are once again giving a home course to two high schools and then giving the 529 residents here a place to play golf as well instead of a farm hay field as was the case last year. last year.

Opening day began with the start of a two-day tournament called the Lynx Golf Invitational.
