A Message from Management
Autobahn Country Club Members:
Thank you all for your support as we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 issues. We are working hard in ensuring a safe and healthy environment, keeping the Club financially sound and preparing for the eventual opening of our 2020 season.
In response to Governor Pritzker’s announcement to extend the stay-at-home order in Illinois until the end of April, Autobahn Country Club has delayed the opening of its 2020 operating season until Friday, May 1, 2020. This date could be extended if circumstances change. The health and safety of our members, guests and employees is of upmost importance. Although we all are disappointed about delaying the start of our season, we are and will be complying with the government directives, recognizing that the health and well-being of our employees is critical for us to eventually open our doors to our members.
As we’ve stated previously, your continued support of our staff, your financial support through the payment of dues and fees, and your friendship and camaraderie are truly amazing. Without this support and friendship, the Club cannot operate, and we greatly appreciate everything you do. Related to this, please know that we are actively working on taking advantage of the financial assistance programs available to small businesses as a result of COVID-19. These programs should be very helpful in reducing the impact of the virus to our business and our employees.
Thank you again for all you do. We will continue to keep you posted if circumstances change. Please stay safe and healthy and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Minor Access Procedures
Many of our Club members have children ages 16 or 17 who are licensed drivers and who wish to come out to the Club without their parents. We encourage everyone to come to the Club and enjoy the facilities whenever they can.
With our insurance carrier’s help, we have developed an annual Parental Consent Waiver which allows minor children of Club Members to have access to the Club without their parents being present so long as the Minor procedures are strictly followed.
