Naperbrook Golf Course sprawls across rolling hills covered with native prairie grasses. Located in northwest Plainfield, the course was carefully carved from pristine Illinois farmland. The traditional links-style layout nicely balances player-friendly elements with more challenging ones. Like many links courses, wind will most likely be a factor. The fairways are open and fairly generous and the large greens have interesting undulations and tiers. Though the golf course is routed through 10 different ponds, water isn't the most prominent hazard. Instead you'll find the tall grasses to be the more challenging test. There are also some tricky hidden bunkers strategically placed throughout. The par 5s are long but reachable and the par 3s are particularly challenging, offer greater rewards to players who are willing to take risks. In addition to the golf course, Naperbrook is also home to a 10-acre driving range.

I’ve been playing this course for years and always enjoy it. Although easy off the tee, the course has its challenges. It’s akso easy to find a good deal out there.

The course was in good shape for November. Greens were still healing from an aeration...necessary evil of fall golf. Course layout was somewhat generic. Not overly difficult. Would be a good place for beginners and high handicappers to play. No complaints, overall. Pretty average park district course.

For the time of the year the course was in great shape. Even the irradiated greens played fast. Most of the holes play to my flaws (slice) which made it more enjoyable. Not a difficult course but it can play long. For my round it was a great value at a really good golf course.

***The pace of play was great, but there were only 9 people on the course due to the weather so the four stars are deceiving. Friendly staff and amenities were also nice.

It was a bit windy so several holes were a challenge to hit the green in regulation. Two of the par fives were playing over 560 and into the wind so they were beasts. One of the par 4's was 425 or so and was tough into the wind was well. My wife is a 7 and she found the same holes very difficult from her tees as well. Greens were in good condition. They had grounds worker actually repairing the ball marks on the greens. He said he would end up doing it twice but as usual with most courses the golfers don't repair their marks but at least the course tried. Still the greens were good but tough to read. The fairways were great and we loved the layout.

Looked like the pins hadn't been moved in a week. Apparently the course doesn't repair ball marks either. The course is well designed and lush but the grass was rather long not allowing much roll in the fairways. Course was packed with an outing and they ran out of carts so you had to wait until your tee time to receive a cart coming off 18. Starter was overly concerned with a receipt despite the fact that we had an electronic confirmation of full payment and a set of rental clubs in our possession.

This course is designed for the average golfer or the weekend duffer. It is challenging yet not to the point of being totally frustrated by the end of the eighth hole. Playing from the tips looks to be a fair test for the not so faint of heart. The service is great-accommodating, and friendly. Play it once and I'm sure you will want it to be your "home course".

Course was good shape, greens were rolling well for just having the storms pass through the day before. Pace of play was excellent, didn't wait once to have to hit. Usually play from the back +325 yds, moved up one box, made a big difference in the wet conditions. Green breaks are very subtle on these undulating multi-tiered greens. It's all about the 2nd shot here for the most part.

First time here after many rounds at sister track Spring Brook several miles north.

Great course for working out swing; mostly wide landing areas and few trees or hazards coming into play.

Very good condition through the green; putting greens good but not as well maintained as Spring Brook.

Very friendly staff.
