No Ranger pace of play

I really like this golf course and the physical plant however the pace of play was not monitored today and it caused serious issues.

Fun Layout

Unique front and back 9 challenges. Thoroughly enjoy making the round. One nice fix would be replacing the worn out spike brushes on the course, and had a few more on both 9's. Other than that a gun track through the local countryside.

Always a Great Experience

Played this past Sunday, 5th round at WtR this year. Cannot say enough good things about this facility. Great clubhouse, pristine practice facility (could use a bunker at the putting green, but it's not a deal breaker) and the course layout is spectacular.

Front 9 is relatively flat with water every hole but #1, enough to challenge your shot making abilities.

The back 9 is rolling and features as good a 4 hole stretch (from #10 to #14) as you'll find in the area. #17 is a great Par 3 from an elevated Tee box down to a green surrounded on 2 sides by water.

Cannot say enough good things about Whitetail Ridge.

Solid layout

Even though it rained quite hard the day prior, the course drained well. There were a few wet spots but nothing bad. I think they could have ran the rakes through the sand bunkers but they may have been a logical reason they were unable to

A little pricey for Father’s Day but it was quite enjoyable

I’ll be back

A Must-Play Course!

Whitetail Ridge is one of the most tranquil courses you'll ever play. You won't ever hear car traffic. Marshals will leave you alone. The players are always respectful of the game. It's as good as Cantigny (for at least half the price). It's definitely worth it if you're willing to drive to the edge of Chicagoland!

Great layout

Love this course...they might want to hand out a flyer to golfers about how to treat a green. Got behind some groups who had no clue how to walk on a green. Nasty scuff marks and just unnecessary gouges on the greens. Not a mark on the course maintenance, just ignorant golfers.

Excellent golf course- very well maintained. The course has a lot of character and offers the golfers to male risk / reward choices. Great holes both on front and back nine. Tough par 5s and par 3s - gem of a golf course tucked away in the far western suburbs

Target golf, some open holes

Great course conditions, great driving range, fun challenging layout, scenic course, undulations abound, hilly course cause you tee off from some high perches. Definitely will play again!

This is a mini pga championship course...

The 1st hole is awesome....birdi opportunity all day long, and that's where it ends....this is a great challenging course, especially from the blacks..the looks off the tee boxes are awesome...the carries seem farther than they are, so it makes for a great mind game...the course seems well maintained...if the greens are relatively fast....this is a top 5 course in the area...

Fairly new course, some trees not yet mature. Front 9 is flat with water in play on several holes. Course is maintained well. Bunkers are prone to washouts on some holes, due to the design. Some have been removed already due to this.
Well stocked pro shop. Full service restaurant.
Good bev cart service on front side.
Back 9 is dry, as in no alcohol.

Very well kept

Found this hot deal on Golfnow. The course and a few thin fairways, but for the most part it was forgiving. The entire course was very well kept.
