Canal Shores offers programs that celebrate the game of golf, with special programs designed for families, youth and the community.
The association, a non-profit, all-volunteer organization, was formed in 1919 to manage the operations of the 18-hole Canal Shores Golf Course. It is established as a charitable organization and qualifies as an exempt organization under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The course runs along the North Shore Channel from Green Bay Road in Evanston to the Baha’i Temple near Wilmette Harbor and operates under a special lease agreement with the City of Evanston and Village of Wilmette on land owned by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Cook County.
