Irv's Golf Range on South Cicero Avenue at approximately West 70th Street. ( Gone.) Bedford Park Illinois USA. July 1986.
Welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page from the city of Chicago Illinois.
I took this photo in July of 1986. From the early 1970's until the place closed in 1992, an all time favorite Chicago area southside family operated amusement place of mine, was Irv's Golf Range in southwest suburban Bedford Park Illinois. Located at the southwest corner of the South Cicero Avenue overpass bridge that spanned the massive Belt Railway of Chicago Clearing Yard, this quaint establishment featured a golf driving range, a miniature golf course, batting cages, and a pinball and video arcade room.
I enjoyed coming here with My family on summer evenings around sunset.
Today, this is the site of a Walmart store.
