There was once an extensive network of African-American golf leagues and clubs spread across the country. As the golf world opened up, most of them faded away.

But one that remains is the Chicago Women’s Golf Club, which turns 80 this year and is the oldest black women’s golf club in the nation.

We paid them a visit at their home course, the Joe Louis “The Champ” Golf Course in south suburban Riverdale.

The Chicago Women’s Golf Club’s junior division, the “Bob-O-Links,” plays in Jackson Park and is open to boys and girls ages 8-17.
