It plays more like a park district course, very short which makes it easy to get bunched up. A little tricked up with the sloping greens.

Wanted to try a new course in the Northwest Chicago area. The Staff was courteous and professional. The course we well maintained and other than some players not fixing their Divots on the greens was in great shape especially after a week of rain. 4 hours 20 minute round, no one pushing us . A slow group a couple in from=nt of us did slow play a bit, but still reasonable for a Sunday 10 AM tee off on a public course. ranges were watching the slower group so it did not become an issue

I was meeting a friend in the burbs for brunch, so I booked a tee time at the crack of dawn here and it was exactly what I love about going out early. I was one of the first golfers here and was playing 9 holes on my own so they sent me out to the back 9 to play by myself.

It was wonderful. So quiet, played 9 holes in like an hour, the only people I saw were the groundskeepers. Felt like I owned the place. Nice long holes, challenging greens. Well maintained, not expensive, pleasant staff.

No idea what it is like during the day, but had a nice experience here.

Course conditions were mostly good, but found a few spots with concrete-like ground. Greens were challenging, they were more deceptive than they looked. Course layout was fair, there are good opportunities to score well. Staff and players are friendly, Rangers and beverage cart girl were frequently seen.

Played in the late afternoon after work...course was crowded in front of us, but after a few holes one of the 3 rangers moved us to an open hole where the pace was good. Course was in good shape-green fairways, thick rough, smooth greens. The rough wasn't long, but thick and grabbed your club. Overall a nice and fun course.

Nice park district course very well maintained, seems like an old school private club with its funky layout. Firm, smooth fast greens rooled great, fairways were in need of a mow, but it had been raining in the morning. Booze was a little expensive. But I will be back.

This course is in good shape and a great value for the Chicago market. Staff is very courteous and friendly. There were a few slow groups in front of our group and the ranger moved us up a few holes and told us to come back at the end to finish the holes we skipped. When we came back, he was right there waiting for us and integrated us into the flow.
