A Year-Round Club!

The colder weather which brings the end of the golf, tennis, and pool seasons will no longer limit club activities. With the addition of the new courts and the golf simulators our members can remain active all year long.

Over the past year, construction crews have been working on a capital project, originially proposed in 2019, and making it a reality for IGC members. This project included adding new resort-like facilities including paddle and pickleball courts, indoor golf simulators, a sports bar, and a casual dining room with views of the paddle courts.

IGC has always been the place to be in Inverness and with our exceptional dining offerings and social events, more and more families are realizing the value and benefits we provide.

DRESS CODE

Centre Court offers a more casual dining experience for IGC Membership and their guests. Men's proper attire includes warm-up suits, tennis shorts, collarless athletic shirts or athletic sweatshirts. Women's proper attire includes warm-up suits, tennis shorts, tennis skirts or dresses, racer-back tennis shirts or blouses, collarless athletic shirts or athletic sweatshirts. Shoes required.

PADDLE

Paddle season is underway! We have a full calendar of drills, matches, and events. Our three men’s teams have started competing against other clubs in the Chicago area. Our Ladies Intraclub League begins soon.

All four paddle courts are open and ready for play. As always, please reserve a court if you are planning on playing. When reserving a court, please be sure to select that you would like to reserve a Paddle Court at the top left drop-down menu. If you need equipment (paddles, balls, etc.) please reach out to Andrew. See you on the courts!

Meet our Pro!

Andrew Buchholz is an USPTA Elite Professional and oversees the Club’s Tennis, Paddleball, and Pickleball programs. With the addition of Pickleball and Paddleball (or Platform Tennis) to their already robust Tennis Program, IGC will now offer dynamic, year-round racquet sports programming for our members.

Tennis

Now it is time to look forward to the exciting future of the racquets program at IGC. An emphasis this season will be on making sure there are enough options for players looking for more competition. If you intend to use the tennis courts outiside of group or private lessons, please make a reservation using our Court Reservation system. The tennis courts will be available for use through October 31, 2022.

Pickleball

Pickleball is easy to pick up and play, some of the rules and scoring can be a little tricky.  We offer many chances to learn and improve your pickleball game with clinics, along with being able to play in social and more competitive events.

How to Access the Courts
The pickleball courts are located on the west side of the pool. You can access the courts by walking around the back of the club, through the back patio and down the stairs towards the pool. You will walk through the grass and enter the courts just past the pool fence. Ladies can also walk through the ladies locker room. There is a pickleball social area with tables and chairs where you can place your gear and socialize before and after playing. Please see the diagram if you have any questions. Please note the court numbers on the diagram.
 
Reserving a Court
Please always reserve a court when planning on coming to the pickleball courts to play. You can reserve up to 2 hours at a time and up to 2 weeks in advance. If you have any issues or want to reserve outside of these parameters, please contact Andrew. When reserving a court, please be sure to select that you would like to reserve a Pickleball Court at the top left drop-down menu. Our Pickleball Courts will be open through November 30, 2022.  
Attire and Etiquette
Players should wear athletic clothing and court shoes. Black soled shoes are not allowed as they will leave marks on the courts. No bare feet, flip flops, swimsuits, etc.
