Directors of the Canal Shores golf course are inviting the public to come to a meeting in Evanston Friday night to get input on a proposed plan for upgrading the facility.

The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the American Legion Hall, 1030 Central St.

On hand to present the plan and to answer questions and concerns from the public will be David Zinkand, a golf course designer and landscape architect, who helped the board develop what is called the Canal Shores 100 Master Plan.


Goals of the plan are to provide golf facilities and training for present and future golfers, provide multi-use recreational facilities with a focus on families and youth, and to promote environmental sustainability by maintaining, nurturing, and enhancing ecological health and natural habitat on the 40-acre parcel of land along the North Shore Channel in Evanston and Wilmette.

As a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, Canal Shores receives no tax dollars to support the operations of the course.

Additional information about the plan is available on the group's website.

  1. Given what is proposed, they should say more
    I’ve heard their proposal for the course itself and would think golfers and potential golfers would want more notice, since it could directly effect them—and not in a way they would like.
    It sounds like they are giving an official notice [of a Meeting] but hoping people don’t know they might want to protest.
