Five Iron Golf opens two more locations in Chicago
Reshaping modern golf culture in Chicago and beyond, Five Iron Golf offers a reimagined, high-tech, inclusive golf experience complete with a full-service bar and restaurant for both golfers and non-golfers alike.
Located in the Loop’s Block37 at 108 N. State, Five Iron (with other Chicago locations in River North and Lincoln Park) offers 11 TrackMan simulators with down-the-line and front-facing cameras installed in each bay, allowing everyone to practice and play like the pros with instant video analysis and virtual rounds on more than 100 of the world’s greatest courses. And did we mention there are even teaching professionals on hand to help with that slice?
It’s not just golf though, as Five Iron features a full-service bar and restaurant with a chef-inspired menu, craft cocktails, local favorites on draft and plenty of event space. A perfect spot to keep your swing from getting rusty or for a post-work group outing.
Too bad Pebble Beach ate us alive, but we can’t wait to go back. Visit FiveIronGolf.com for more information.

Jurassic Oceans: Monsters of the Deep exhibit on display at the Field Museum
During the Jurassic period, dinosaurs roamed a landscape covered in lush rainforests — and thanks to Hollywood, most of us have a pretty good idea of what that world looked like. But one of the Field Museum’s newest exhibitions gives visitors a chance to dive into the other side of that world: its seas. Jurassic Oceans: Monsters of the Deep takes visitors on an underwater journey to encounter some of the fascinating, fierce, and strange creatures that dominated Earth’s Jurassic seas while dinosaurs ruled the land.
The show features more than 100 fossils and models ranging from giant marine reptiles that looked like real-life versions of the Loch Ness Monster to small, strange starfish cousins called sea lilies. Visitors will come face-to-face with marine predators and other friendly marine life of the Jurassic seas through real fossils and CGI projections.
Touch the real fossils of shelled creatures from the Jurassic, feel the textures of replicated sea creature skins and explore the features of marine reptiles on interactive touchscreens.
The exhibit will run through Sept. 5, 2020. Field Museum, 1400 S Lake Shore Drive. FieldMuseum.org
