They stack up the tee times and there were generally two groups on every tee box. Yes, it's always windy here and yes, there's lots of water. But the delays on the course were simply unacceptable.

If you aren't an Indiana resident, you pay about 50% more to play here as well.

Clean it up, Lost Marsh!

One of the finest courses in the Chicago area, at a great price. As good or better to Harborside at 1/3 the price.

Lake winds always makes this course more challenging, it would be nice if holes 1 and 3 were later in the round.

Staff is very cordial and customer oriented.

This course is no joke. I play from the tips and with the wind at this place being near the lake, over 6800 yards can seem like 7100 or 6500 depending on direction. Some really fun par 4s (around the 300 mark), some long tough par 3s, and overall really nice design. There are a few holes that aren't really "fair" starting with the 1st. they require some near perfect shots. other than that, great course for the money and a close drive from chicago. well worth every dollar.

I have always looked for a chance to play Lost Marsh. Nephews have almost adopted this course as their Go To Course. Now I know why. The course is beautiful, layout great and conditions were out of this world. Only drawback was the pace on the back nine which caused my threesome to jump past 12 and get away from them. Rangers could have assisted but I did not see any of them on the back nine. Even with this, I would have to say that Lost Marsh is a Diamond in the Rough.

The clubhouse crew was fantastic. Stuck around for a few cocktails on the balcony and service was right on the money.

Final verdict - To quote Arnold, "I'll be back"

Unbelievable hot deal 18 w/cart for $12. Regular green fees are a little steep but it is an excellent condition, well designed course and worth it. It rained /drizzled off & on during whole round but I expected some. Supposed to be paired w/ a threesome but the starter said I could head out alone if I wanted. Played as a single and played through several foursomes as i caught them, round only took 2:45 hrs
