Golf Course Information
In the mid nineteen-twenties a new land deal began in Crete. It was the same year, 1925, that Lincoln Fields land deal had taken place. This time it was land purchased by a Chicago syndicate for a golf course and a village - Lincolnshire Estates. The new corporation was headed by Mr. Sam Homan (original name was Haimovitz) a developer, and Mr. Colen, his attorney the realtor of the deal was Cowing Brothers Real Estate, Edward J. Rippe, manager.
The land purchased was the farm land of Moncena Schoonmaker, M. J. Adams, James Muirhead, George Wilder, J. W. Miller, Henry Triebold, and Hugo Themer. The land amounted to about 800 acres. Other small parcels were included in the original land purchase, making the full acreage over 1,000 acres.
Its north boundary was to be Steger Road, to the east Crete Road, Exchange Street to the south, and it was bisected by the Milwaukee Railroad tracks. The entrance to Lincolnshire Estates was from Steger Road, from the State Street extension. A second entrance to Lincolnshire and its club was opened from Dixie Highway late 1926, today known as part of Richton Road.
