RIVERWOODS, Ill., Jan. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ’Tis the season! Ravinia Green Country Club in Riverwoods is helping make the season merry and bright for Members with a seasonal club transformation – now offering an extraordinary selection of outdoor winter activities. Unlike any other in Chicagoland, the Club – known in the summer months for golf, swimming and tennis – has altered its amenities for winter and added ice skating, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and more, giving Members a safe way to stay active during the winter months.

Winter activities now being offered at Ravinia Green include:

The nearby warming hut provides the perfect spot for skaters to warm their fingers and toes while enjoying hot chocolate and other sweet treats.
  • Cross-country skiing – Over the fairway and through the greens, Members can put on their skis and traverse through the course, all while getting in an awesome workout.
  • Snowshoeing – Perfect as a solo activity or for families to appreciate nature or compete to see who is fastest.
  • Skeet and trap shooting – Members also have access to this recreational and competitive sport at nearby Rolling Green Country Club in Arlington Heights.

Additional winter weather amenities include:
