Dog Walking in Golf

The village of Golf in Cook County covers half a square mile, and has a population of just under 500. Although it is tiny, it still has plenty to offer visiting pups. This area is rich in woodland areas to explore and pup-friendly parks to play at, and is less than 20 miles north of Chicago.

The must-do while in Golf is to walk the North Branch Trail which runs right through the woodland areas of Golf. This paved trail runs almost 20 miles from Northbrook north of Golf, to Chicago in the south. You need to keep your dog on a lead here, but it is an easy path with plenty to see along the way, and you can choose to wander as far as you like. As always when venturing out on a hike, go prepared with your water, any snacks you might like, and your clean up bags.

Deiderich Park in town is another great little green space to catch some fresh air with your dog. You can go for an on-lead walk around the park, or just stretch out on the grass and watch the world go by. From here, take a walk through the town of Golf and check out the historic buildings and shops. You and your dog are sure to enjoy your time here in Golf.

Harms Woods in Golf is a lovely spot for a hike with your dog, or a day out with the whole family for a picnic amongst the trees. The wooded park is bisected by the North Branch of the Chicago River, and offers up scenic views and plenty of wildlife to spot. There are two trails on the west side of the river, as well as two sections leading from the Harms Woods parking area on the east. The main trail heading south and an offshoot will take you on a 1.2 mile detour east around Harms Flatwoods. There are plenty of picnic areas, and restrooms are available near the carpark. Bring your water bottle and a drinking bowl for your pup, as well as your clean up bags.

Just five miles from Golf is the Community Bark West Dog Park in Glenview. Here, your pup can escape the lead and run to his heart’s content, burn off some energy and meet some new friends. You will first need to purchase a pass from the Glenview Park District, so go prepared with all of your dog’s veterinary paperwork. The fenced six-acre park is well-maintained and has walking paths throughout. There are water fountains for dogs and people, and waste disposal facilities on-site to keep the place clean for all users. You can supervise your pup while taking some time out at one of the benches or under the shelter.
