Group Tours: Guy’s Weekend in the Fox River Valley

DAY ONE (Late afternoon or evening)

Upon arrival in the Northern Fox River Valley, check in at your hotel for the weekend.

Tonight relax in your hotel room and get ready for an early morning, or go out on the town and enjoy a scrumptious dinner at one of several wonderful restaurants the Fox River Valley area has to offer.


Breakfast on own, at hotel, or at Baker Hill Pancake House in Elgin.

This morning wake up nice & early, grab your clubs and enjoy 18 holes at one or all of the most challenging golf courses in the Northern Fox River Valley: Bonnie Dundee Golf Course, The Highlands, Marengo Ridge Golf Course, or Randall Oaks Golf Club.

If the weather (or time of year) doesn’t permit golfing, take the guys over to The Centre, a state-of-the-art sports complex in downtown Elgin where you can enjoy three regulation-sized basketball courts, racquetball courts, a huge gym with indoor track, and Olympic-sized swimming pools.

Late Lunch and Tour at Emmett’s
After a full day of sports, head to Emmett’s Tavern & Brewing Company where you’ll enjoy the finest traditional American food and handcrafted beer. After lunch see how your beer was made with a fascinating tour of this microbrewery given by Emmett’s award-winning master brewer.

After your lunch & tour of Emmett’s, return to your hotel to relax and freshen up.

Dinner at Prairie Rock Brewing Company
We begin your evening experience at Prairie Rock Brewing Company, a multi-setting restaurant consisting of two separate concepts under one roof to suit whatever mood you’re in! The casual setting offers your members a more relaxed atmosphere, menu, and several home-brewed beverages to choose from. If your folks prefer a great sandwich, delicious homemade beverage while watching the game on the big screen, this is the place for them. The more stated setting offers your tour group a more upscale atmosphere and menu, consisting of steaks, chops, and seafood. If your group would prefer a casual dining experience in an old silent movie house accompanied by a roaring fire, then this is side they want to have dinner.

After dinner, you and your buddies can pick up some fine stogies at either Distinctions or The Smokin’ Rocket Cigar Shop, and enjoy them (as well as a few cocktails) at The Martini Room in downtown Elgin.

For this evening’s entertainment, you have a couple of options:
