Irv's Golf Range located at approximately West 70th Street and South Cicero Avenue. ( Gone.) Bedford Park Illinois. July 1986.

Hello everyone!
Welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page from the city of Chicago Illinois.

I found this old photo in My archives, that I had taken way back in July of 1986. We are on location along the west side of South Cicero Avenue at approximately West 70th Street, in southwest suburban Bedford Park Illinois. This plce now long gone, was known as Irv's Golf Range.

Irv's Golf Range was a fun and very family oriented little amusement place, located about 3/4 of a mile north of the Ford City Shopping Center on South Cicero Avenue, right next door to the Belt Railway of Chicago Clearing Yard facility.

I always enjoyed hitting a bucket of golf balls on the driving range, playing miniature golf, or spending time playing the arcade games. I came here quiete a bit with either family, friends or even solo from the early 1970's until the place closed in 1992.

Today, this is the site of two neighboring Target and Wal Mart stores.
This photo is facing south on a hot summer evening.

I miss Irv's Golf Range today.
