First Time Playing

Great local (Chicago) course

Our first time here, and definitely not our last!
Beautiful, technical and tight course, fast greens and very well kept fairways.
From meeting the pro shop folks (very friendly) who gave great first timer pointers to the starter who is just as friendly.
Good dogs at the 1/2 way house, great day of golf!!!

Lost Marsh course

This was a really nice course. This was our first time going here. Will be back with no doubt and possibly bring our sons as well. It was a challenging course but still loved it. From the staff to the overall experience you will not be disappointed. The only issue we saw was some of the greens needs to be swept off. There were sticks and goose poop on some of the greens that could interfere with your put, but please don't let that stop you from going. You will not be disappointed in this course in any way.

Lost Marsh Shortee Review

For a mid-May round the course is looking really good. Course offers both walking and riding rates. Given the Covid-19 situation it's 1 player per cart if riding.

The course is a mix of link and parkland style courses. The openings 4 holes puts you to a test and can set the tone for the rest of the round. I like this course as it offers challenges for every skill level of golfer. Challenges long players to choose a a shorter club off the tee to account for dog legs and short players to force carry hazards if they want to attack pins. The greens provide their own challenges with subtle breaks and unforgiving if found above the hole for a downhill putt.

The staff is friendly and accommodating during the current pandemic. Carts are an issue though right now but won't once courses are fully open. Foursomes taking 4 carts applies a capacity constraint. If you're booking a late morning or early afternoon round when the morning groups aren't back yet, you will have to wait for a cart.

Carts come equipped with accurate GPS, usually matched with my arccos system, gps watch and laser range finder. Distances to pins and hazards are easy to navigate on the touchscreen. Electric carts come with USB ports, although I didn't test it to see if it charged my phone.

All in all I give the course a solid 4.5 out 5. The value exceeds what I would get comparably in Illinois, where price gouging seems to be the norm.

Thanks for reading,

Great course close to Chicago!

Lost Marsh is one of the best spots for a great round within 20-30 minutes from downtown. Pace of play can be a little slow in the afternoon, but the course is a fun challenge and well-kept. Great value all around!

Perfect Windy Day

It was a day that was clear enough to see the city of Chicago 20+ miles away. Very windy but perfect. One of those days where you couldn't just go to the ball and hit a shot. You had to judge the wind or get your shot off just before a gale came up.

Had a ton of fun

Nice Course. Challenging but fair

Played on a Tuesday with a GolfNow stranger. We had a great time. The course was practically empty. We finished in 3 hours. The course was in excellent shape. Greens roll true, with few ball marks. Fairways are wide. Many interesting uphill and downhill shots required. The first 5 holes are challenging and require good shotmaking with a bit of target golf. My pick-up partner was friendly and we had a great time. I’ll play this course again.
