From time to time I step back and try to describe everyday city life for myself and our family in Chicago. I hope to add more of these vignettes with a little real estate context each week.

I have no official data but I can't imagine it made easier to golf within
another major city. In about 10 minutes from leaving Lincoln Square
early Wednesday morning I was parking at Sidney Morovitz Golf Course
on the lakefront. The well maintained course offers both city and lake views. It's a great way to play before work (or work while playing as I tell my wife).

|Steve Dunnett, Senior Mortgage Consultant at Blueleaf Lending (firstname.lastname@example.org) lines up the par three over the swamp. He hit the green! Steve gets me up to date on loan programs and issues while tearing up the course.|
|Our playing partner Brian (a construction project manager) tees off down the home stretch along lakefront running paths. Brian rode his bike over with a light golf bag.|
If you get out early, Marovitz is a convenient course for those working or living around downtown, north side or south side. There is no traffic on Lake Shore Drive coming in before 7:00 am and leaving the course just after 9:00am. Steve's office is in the West Loop so we headed 5 minutes south on LSD from the course to an old favorite Nookies in Old Town
I really like aspects of the burbs. But I can't imagine not having easy access to just about anything I need or like by walking, bike, train or quick car ride throughout my regular day. To easily mix in golf, architecture, good food (on every corner) and business in a few hours and be back at my home office in minutes can't be beat! Less time in the car, more time on the streets seeing property too.
