Beautiful course & facilities with large practice area and beautiful clubhouse. Course was very well kept. First five holes are wild and pretty challenging but a ton of fun. Only knock on the course was the on-course staff could have been a little friendlier. Clubhouse & starter were great but once we got on the course we had a ranger come and take notes on something on our cart on more than one occasion while we were putting and never spoke to us. Another employee told us to hurry up and catch up to the group in front of us who was halfway done with 2 when we teed off on 1 and a threesome behind our foursome never waited on us once so our pace of play was completely fine.
Links Type Feel
1st time playing in a while. Perfect course to get back in the swing of things. Good balance of easy and hard holes. Lots of winds at times making it feel like Scotland, but that was great.
Great clubhouse with views of the course and view of downtown Chicago on a clear day.
Thanks for the outstanding 5-star review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your round with us and hope to see you again for another round soon. Thanks for playing Lost Marsh Golf Course!
Excellent, very friendly staff. Challenging but fai r course.
Only knock is Mother Nature and the crazy wind gusts today.
Felt like playing in the British Open!!!!
wish the course was flipped so the water holes were on the back nine...
Fairways were wet so drives would plug....
Very windy day made some holes long...
Pin placements on many holes were on slopes or mounds...
Prior knowledge of where you should land your shots is very helpful.
Lost Ball not Lost Marsh
Course was wet, very windy.....tough conditions....
Great Course, Horrible Pace
2nd time playing this course in the last month. First time out we got caught up in slow play on the back 9 and ended up leaving.
Hoping it was just a coincidence, we decided to give it another shot. We started with no groups in front of us for 2 holes and no group teeing off behind for another time slot. We caught up to the group in front and waited 10 minutes on every single shot for the rest of the round. There were 6 groups on top of each other for the entire back 9. We only saw the ranger once the entire day who didn’t seem to do anything to speed up the slow groups in front, only said “Saturday’s and Sunday’s are busy”
It was not nearly busy enough for the pace to be as poorly as it was. It’s a terrific course with a fun, challenging layout but the pace is unbearable. Unfortunately won’t be back
Great layout good condition
Great combination of long and short holes offering challenging shots
Great layout and pretty good conditions. The struggle was pace, we were a 2some in-between 4,3 and behind them was a 2some. Their new gps system said 35 MINUTES BEHIND PACE!!!! Rarley saw a player assistant try and move people.
Challenging course with poorly maintained greens
Lost Marsh starts with 6 difficult holes requiring very accurate shot making over water and marsh hazards. The remaining 12 holes are a bit easier, but many require drives or second shots over hazards. The fairways are in very good shape, but the greens are covered with ball marks and other imperfections that change the roll of good putts. Pace of play was fine at 4-1/4 hours. The GPS systems on the carts are very nice.
Challenging course that is fun to play
The first 5 holes at Lost Marsh require accurate shots. Unless you are a really big hitter you’ll have to play target golf with layups to each section of the course between hazards. The water plays a dominant role in your strategy in playing these holes. The rest of the course has fewer water hazards, but there are many carries required over marshland grasses. The fairways are in good shape, but the greens have many ball marks and rough spots.In some cases the ball marks affect playability. We enjoyed seeing three deer grazing on the course.
