Bartlett Hills Ladies 18 Hole Golf League By Barbara Bostian   Leave a comment

In 1978 a group of 9 women formed an 18 hole golf league at Bartlett Hills Golf Course.
At that time, the course was privately owned and clubhouse was in an old barn. When the Village of Bartlett purchased the course, the barn was torn down, the course was improved, and the beautiful clubhouse was built. The ladies golf league continued through it all, and 2018 will be their 50th year. From the early years until now, ladies compete within the league every Wednesday morning from May through September.

The Bartlett Hills ladies also compete in the Intersuburban Golf League (IGL). The IGL is comprised of several divisions which include teams from courses in the Northern, Northwestern, Western, and Southern suburbs. In the mid-1990’s, Bartlett Hills ladies won the IGL Championship 2 times.

Many of the golfers enter many different competitions both locally and statewide. BHLL continuously provides a great experience, healthy competition, and enjoyment of the game of golf.

The league has 4 divisions based on handicap. New members are always welcome.  If you are interested in more information, please call or stop by the pro shop.

Are children’s meals available?
We provide children’s meal at a reasonable price and we also provide for all your vegetarians, vegans or any other dietary needs your guests may have with advance notice. We also discount meals for your vendors.

Are there hotels in your area?
We do offer a list of area hotels that provide shuttle service on our website at www.bartletthills.com. This list is just for your convenience and we do not have any affiliation with them for discounted room rates. Many will offer the bride and groom special discounts or upgrades with a minimum room blockage. Most of the hotels on the list are approximately 15-20 minutes from our facility.

Is there any flexibility with Saturday night minimums?
Typically not during the peak wedding season (May-October). However, for last minute bookings with open cancellation dates there is a bit of wiggle room.  Off-season we offer a Friday 10% discount off the entrée price and free hors d’oreuvres for the cocktail hour and for Sunday 15% off the entree price.

Who provides your wedding cakes?
Your guests will enjoy the delicious cakes and authentic Italian desserts and pastries from Il Giardino del  Dolce Bakery. Voted the Best Bakery in Chicago by Chicago Magazine. Il Giardino also provides all the mini pastries for our sweet tables. They have replicated many styles of wedding cakes from website and bridal magazines as well. They love to customize too.

Can I use my own vendors?
Bartlett Hills will provide a vendor list for your convenience, but you are welcome to use your own.  You can also provide your own centerpieces and wedding cake and we will credit your account. We strongly urge you to hire professional wedding vendors so that your wedding day will be the best it can be.
Any limitations on decorating?
Somewhat. For the most part, the fantastic view of the outdoors and the décor that we provide is sufficient. Some décor must be done by a professional. For some more extensive decorating done by Bartlett Hills staff, a service fee may apply. Most weddings typically accrue about 2 hours of clients’ set-up of escort cards, favors, and accessories. All additional fees are based on each couples individual needs. Typically additional fees can run approximately up to $100 to $150 per hour.

-Can we taste test the food?
You sure can. Before an actual booking you’re welcome to come in for a pre-tasting on the evening of another event. Typically a taste test for a booked wedding occurs about 3 months prior to your date. This time is also used to plan all the details and flow of the reception. At this taste you’ll be trying soup, three entrees and wedding cake too. The taste/finals lasts approximately 2 1/2-3 hours in duration.

-How many events does your venue have at one time?
Only one. Yours. You can make your own times, extend your time, come in early for hair & make-up (with ceremony booking) or pictures. Your event would be exclusive at Bartlett Hills.

Great snacks such as corn dogs, pretzel bites, funnel cakes, flavored popcorn, elephant ears & more were provided by Chef’s Anthony & Dustin of Bartlett Hills GC, Peggy O’Hara’s Pub, Marcia at Gordon Food Service & Greco Foods all located in Bartlett. The ladies also enjoyed a pasta station with choice of marinara or alfredo sauce. David from Bartlett Town Liquor offered a superb selections of wines for the ladies to taste and a nice array of assorted cheeses were also on display.

Martha Katselis from Closet Boutique (Little Shop on Oak) hosted 3 very trendy fashion shows all organized and coordinated by Tracy Opel. We appreciated all the volunteer models and for Salon 418 for the great hair and make-up transformations.

Some of the vendors we had included Burseth Farms with goat milk soaps & lotions, Love your Lips, Lula Roe, Garden Gypsy, Canvas Paint Parties (I can’t wait to do this), Thirty-One Gifts, and even a psychic reader.

Our DJ and MC extraordinaire Steve Rogalla at All-Pro Music played great tunes for the fashion shows and had quite a few of the ladies up and dancing until close. Icon Photo Booth was pretty busy throughout the night capturing the fun moments amongst all the girlfriends attending.

And a very special thank you to Evan Blum our coordinator and host! Evan put in tons of hours planning, searching for the perfect variety of vendors, organizing, ordering and executing all the details for a fantastic night out for the girls. You amaze us all.
