If you haven't played this course before, it really is the tale of two courses. First part is fairly open. Then Number 9 hits you. Many winding and tree lined fairways from there. Not super long but you can find trouble if you are too errant.

Played early bird deal and got out before the bulk of the course traffic. Played in 3:05. Hats off to the walker in front of us who started out 1/2 hole ahead and finished 3 ahead.

Greens were true and a good pace. Fairways were ok, rough was juicy. Tees had recently been plugged, so you had to clear yourself a clean spot. That, and several bunkers in need of repair (duly disclosed by the posters in the clubhouse) kept the course condition rating where it was.

The course was in good shape except for the greens. They just aerated and scraped a week or two ago. We were 3-4 jacking every hole. It was VERY annoying and not much fun at all........

This was the first time I played this course and I'm going back to play it again!

The white tees are a little short roughly 6000, Blues around 6400! Course was in really good shape for so late in the season!! Greens were not too fast as very

Fair ! Sand traps in wonderful condition!

I loved the elevation change especially on the back, something we're not use to here in Illionis ! We pakyed in a 3:15 course was not crowed perhaps threats of rain keep people away!, but it was a beautiful afternoon! Great course for the money ! Definitely on my replay list !

Phillips is a nice track however there are better choices in their normal pricing range. They don't offer memberships or promotions and they have not kept the course in top condition this year. The rough is longer than in the past. yesterday 7/26 was no different. The rough was long and the bunkers were not raked during an afternoon round; no excuse. The staff reflects the director/ pro. I've only played there about 5xs this season because of the price increase and it's my home course. Twilight does not start till 4, give me a break

course is in great condition for any time of the year especially November. Greens were a bit shaggy but overall the tees fairways and greens were in great condition. Interesting course with some fun holes. Can't beat the price.

This course is nicely laid out but the two things that bothersome was the landscapers had not a care in the world as we sat 120 yards out for 2 minutes while they mowed the green. Then after we hit near and on the green they continued to mow the green making us wait once more to putt. Unfortunately they followed us to the next hole and still mowed fairways and greens just in front of us. I swear I was looking for the candid camera because surely this must be a joke but it wasn't. Then this place has absolutely the worst sand traps I have ever seen. Luckily I never went into one but these traps are much worse than Klein Creek. You'd think they would send the mowers to the sand traps instead. Haha

Played this course several times..usually in great shape. Scheduled to play 18 holes yesterday (9/23) and when we arrived at the course found out the greens were aerated on 9/22. They were in terrible shape. Also, encountered course workers on 6 of the first 9 holes. Not too relaxing. I understand that the greens need to be aerated but STRONGLY suggest they inform people on the phone prior to booking a tee time.

The water in the water dispensers was cold. Although the weather was forecast to be hot, a nice breeze and good shade made the outing perfect.<br/> Some courses have eliminated many hazards. Philips Park still has plenty of sand traps and water hazards.<br/> There were a few holes with narrow fairways, but many with wide approaches.<br/> I think it was 14 that had a wide approach, but I sliced two drives to the right, into the fesque.<br/> The greens played fast and the greens were shapely without being comical.
