Nestled amongst lush green fairways of a renowned Jack Nicklaus course, the peaceful golf community known as The Club at Wynstone is a neighborhood built to sustain a private, luxurious residential life. A mere 15 minutes north of Downtown Barrington, this collection of incredible homes is named after the upscale club it surrounds.
Established to create a resort style of living, Wynstone was developed in 1987. Now one of the top gated golf communities in the Midwest, Wynstone holds within its boundaries over 400 homesites and estate homes. A vast terrain of woodlands and lakes begets an arcadian beauty that’s further complemented by the gorgeous architecture of the development itself.
It comes as no surprise that in a location this exceptional and brimming with amenities, prices run higher than the average run-of-the-mill neighborhood. Million-dollar homes aren’t uncommon in Wynstone, and neither is inspiring design. From French country estates whose opulence is undeniably alluring to grand Colonials and imposing brick mansions, the commonality of impressive splendor underlies every property in this neighborhood.
Wynstone allows residents to stick within the bounds of this mostly self-sustainable community without needing to venture far for entertainment and recreation. Ideal for golfers and outdoor enthusiasts, Wynstone is also a wonderful place to raise a family. This is in part thanks to its safe, quiet streets, close vicinity to award-winning schools, and neighborhood events like the Halloween Trunk or Treat for kids and all-day 4th of July celebrations.
Completely residential, Wynstone isn’t saturated with abundant retail or restaurants. Shops within the community are limited to sports shops like Tennis Pro Shop. However, the area is also within just minutes of some of the area’s most popular commercial districts, including the shops and local restaurants of downtown Barrington and the multitude of retail opportunities at The Arboretum of South Barrington.
One of the easiest ways to get your shopping and dining fix is to drive five minutes down S. Rand Rd towards Lake Zurich, where a bevy of restaurants and a shopping center await. Notable restaurants include Bellalukes, a family-owned casual eatery known for the area’s tastiest Italian beef sandwiches. Bobbers offers a laid-back lakefront spot for diners, serving crave-worthy seafood in addition to classic American fare and craft brews.
When residents don’t feel like leaving the neighborhood, they need only visit The Clubhouse to experience incredible dining. Whether savoring an upscale meal at The Nicklaus Grill or opting for a more casual lunch at The Terrace Grill, dining within the community is always a satisfying experience.
Wynstone keeps residents active and encourages healthy habits through the presence of multiple recreational facilities and plenty of community wellness programs. Golfers come here for the renowned Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, whose dramatic elevations and mature oaks are just a few of the reasons it’s an award-winning, state favorite. The club hosts golf events like the annual Partners Invitational, as well as dazzling formal dinners that give residents a chance to dress up and engage with other members.
Club members also have access to convenient amenities such as the large swimming pool—which boasts an equally superb sun deck and poolside cabana—that hosts the local swim team and serves the community. Wynstone also houses four lit tennis courts and two lit pickleball courts, both of which have training programs for adults and kids. Those looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle can also take advantage of the on-site fitness center, decked out with Peloton bikes, free weights, tons of equipment, and mounted televisions.
The Club at Wynstone is home to several excellent schools. Top educational opportunities can be found within the Barrington 220 School District. Nationally recognized for its excellence, this school district has obtained 11 National Blue Ribbon Awards. Notable schools include:
