Lakeshore East, across the river from Navy Pier, was a golf course from 1994 until 2001.

Rate this fact:

The golf course was called "Metro Golf at Illinois Center".

Until 1994, it was industrial land, rail yards, or vacant. Now, the land has several skyscrapers, including the Aqua, with plans for more in the works.

The area has changed drastically since 1989.
