At its southern end, U.S. Highway 41 begins within 5 miles of the Biltmore Golf Course in Coral Gables, Fla. At its northern end, U.S. Highway 41 officially ends within 25 miles of Houghton, Mich., which is less than 50 miles from Lake Superior. In Chicago-land (Cook County), U.S. 41 travels approximately 88 miles, beginning near 95th Street and Ewing Avenue and extending to Interstate 94 West in Northbrook, Ill. U.S. 41 is near, eight, Chicago-land golf facilities.

The southernmost, Chicago-land golf course near U.S. 41 is South Shore Golf Course at 71st Street & South Shore Drive in Chicago Ill. U.S. 41 is this golf course’s, western boundary, and most of its southern boundary. (South Shore Golf Course is a Chicago Park District, nine holes course.)

The northernmost, Chicago-land golf course is Wilmette Golf Club at 3900 Fairway Drive in Wilmette, Ill. (This is an 18 holes, Wilmette Park District course.) U.S. 41 is approximately three miles west of this golf course.

The eight, golf facilities near U.S. 41 include three, 9 holes golf course; two, golf driving ranges; and three, 18 holes golf courses. Currently, snow-laden fairways and very cold wind chills are deterring people from playing golf, but golfers may be using the Diversey Park Driving Range. Cross country skiers may be skiing on golf course fairways.

70th Street & U.S. 41

In Chicago, 70th Street eastbound ends at U.S. 41. If this street extended across U.S. 41, and extended another 20-30 feet, it would intersect with South Shore Golf Course's, fourth hole fairway. (The fourth hole fairway is par four.)

Diversey Range with U.S. 41

Chicago Park District's Diversey Driving Range has two tiers. (This is a view of the upper tier where in January 2014 wind chills will certainly be detrimental to golfers' health.)) The lower tier probably has heated stalls so that golfers can stay warm while practicing. U.S. 41 is east of this driving range approximately 300-500 feet.

Jackson Park Range with U.S. 41

U.S. 41 is approximately 300-400 feet east of the Jackson Park Golf Course Driving Range. In January 2014, I am 99% certain that this range is closed. In January 2014, the trees are bare, snow covers the grass, and the mats are stored.
