Cantigny Golf - Woodside/Lakeside
Located in Wheaton, Cantigny Golf offers 27 holes of championship golf that plays across a beautiful landscape of rolling hills covered with hardwood trees and mature oaks. There are also 12 lakes and two wandering creeks that come into play throughout all of the golf courses. The holes are divided into three nines appropriately named the Lakeside, Hillside, and Woodside. They provide three very different 18-hole combinations. The Woodside/Lakeside Course is a tight course that plays through trees. The many water hazards also demand accuracy. There are interesting elevation changes as well as numerous strategically placed bunkers. All of the Cantigny golf courses are challenging yet playable, making it a great place for tournaments. In the past it has hosted the Illinois Amateur Championship and several USGA qualifiers.

My first time playing this course and was it worth the wait. I think they had their club championship before my round. If that wasn’t the case, the pin placements were in places that would make you think the superintendent was angry off or something. LOL The greens were hard and rolled beautifully. I would have to say it’s one of the best greens I’ve played on.
Great course but poor pace of play
Cantigny is one of the premier courses in the Chicago area and I was excited to play. The starter, Lynn, was very friendly. Unfortunately, a 4 hour 45 round took much away from the round and the golf experience. Waiting on every shot and waiting at each tee box disrupted the round. Never saw a ranger.
Never get to finish
I’ve played this course many times and only finished twice. The pace of play is always remarkably slow. Today was an exceptionally slow one (relative to many others in the past). After 3 holes, I was done. The staff was very accommodating with a rain check.
Just know that on weekends, you might be in for a 5hr+ round.
The course was in great shape and the greens were the best greens I played this year.
The course has some very challenging holes.
The staff was very friendly.
Not enough bang for your buck
I never get a wow effect when playing this course. $120.00 to play... personally I think they are a $75.00 golf course tops... several other courses in the area charging way less with better or same course conditions... I'd take my money down the road to Arrowhead or Schaumburg Golf Club before giving these guys $120.00 again... course was over watered, mud balls all day... bunkers are below average... greens shaggy and slow... they need to verdicut and groom the greens.
very nice layout but it ends there for me...
Beautiful course, great staff!!
We dont play here very often as price is high when 2 people play frequently. The staff is super friendly, amenities are nice (even though didnt take much advantage due to COVID 19), pro shop has nice quality merchandise. Will play again.
I love this place
What a gorgeous piece of land. Conditions were fantastic. This place has tons of staff comprised mostly of high school kids. Everyone one of them was cheery and eager to help. Also, one of the few courses that actually monitors pace of play which I deeply appreciate. I will return often!
Beautiful course - pace of play - terrible
The course was beautiful And in fantastic condition, and the staff super friendly. It took us nearly 3 hrs for 9 holes - lots of standing around and waiting. We gave up playing after the 14th because it was getting dark and the mosquitos were starting to eat us ! . The staff did say they had held an event in the morning and that slowed things up. They didn’t want to hurry the event because they had paid a lot of money and they want them to come back next year. We got a good price for the golf off GolfNow so weren’t too upset about it - but if we had paid full price, we wouldn’t have been very happy. On a good note we would love to play this course again and maybe choose an earlier time of day if possible.
Everyone there was extremely helpful and friendly
Especially the young lady and and starter sending off at your first tee. Will be back again soon for sure... thanks for a wonderful golf day.
I loved the golf facilities the range, pro shop, and halfway house were all amazing. The course was well kept besides the Bunkers they were very subpar most of the time it felt like you were hitting in clay. For the amount you spend on the course its worth playing it once. I wouldn’t return until they fix the bunkers.
This place is a gem. Staff is friendly and helpful. The course is fair and not cookie cutter. Will definitely be back.
