Great starter

starter let us start as a twosome in front of three people he knew we're going to be slower than us that we're supposed to be in front of us I really appreciate his common sense we also had two foursomes that let us playthrough THANK YOU for having golf etiquette it's not about playing quick it's about having a more enjoyable round not waiting all the time FYI you do not have to hit up on people to make them let you play through patience young Padawan
course itself was nice some of the sand traps had issues it was more like rocks and gravel and one hole they were working on and literally have five work trucks in the middle of the Fairway why not just have one or two and keep the other ones off to the side and bring the turf back and forth a lot of areas could have be marked off so they could become repaired would recommend for a good price

Great value

Wonderful value for the money! The greens were a tad slow, but it was a Tuesday. Everything was great. Pace of play could’ve been a bit quicker, but enjoy the day!

Cart path only

We have played this course before, but our club was closed on Sunday due to rain. Whisper Creek was open - cart path only. We liked the course in the past , and would play again -- but NOT cart path only. We are used to walking a lot, and it was even a bit much for us. Cart paths are only on 1 side of the fairways --- so a lot of walking ... no yardage on the markers in the fairways - so a bit difficult to tell distances if walking only. Plus --- the course has to take a beating. Otherwise - if not cart path only, has been a good course. Staff is AMAZING ..... everyone was
GREAT!!!

Quite a fall from grace

I’ve been playing out here once every year or so for about 20 years. It was one of the last courses built during the Chicago course boom. Back in the day they gave golfers a little welcome bag with sunscreen, tees, divot tool, etc. Whisper Creek was probably one of the five most expensive courses in the area at that time. There are 12 perfectly pleasant but very forgettable and unimaginative holes at this course....not the kind of design that justified $80.

They have pivoted dramatically to a value oriented business model which probably makes sense. There are 2-3 great holes and 2-3 ridiculous holes that are universally despised. I think those holes leave a bad taste in the mouths of some reviewers. The conditions aside from two fairways (strange pot holes have emerged on 2 fairways) were good. Greens and tees were quite nice. Many of the bunkers are 100% unplayable....those reviews are dead on. I mean rocks the size of baseballs in numerous bunkers. It wouldn’t be possible to hit from the greenside bunkers on 18 without severely damaging your club. I’ve seen dirt in many Billy Casper bunkers, but this was the first course that featured bunkers that looked like stone quarries. Quite a shame when you look back at those vintage photos of the course featured on the golf advisor site.

It’s worth the drive given the deals they run. If you can manage to par more than one of the par fives consider at a success.! Just don’t expect it to resemble any of the online photos .
