Given the challenging weather and amount of rain over the last few months the course was in very good shape. Bunkers were a little rough but pretty much in line with early spring expectations. Playing off Blues this early in the season was probably not a good decision based on wind conditions and combined skill level of our group but overall a good experience.

The only complaint I had was with pace of play. we teed off at 2:10 and by the 3rd hole we were waiting anywhere from 5-10 minutes -- especially on the tee box. didn't finish the round until after 7 PM. Our cart died on the 17th hole and we had to walk the last hole which added a little time but we didn't tee off 18 until almost 6:50.

The slow pace was unusual based on the last few times I played this course and can probably be attributed to the windy conditions but would have been helpful to see marshals out on the course keeping everyone closer to expected pace.

Looking forward to getting out there again in a few weeks when the weather stabilizes.

The course is known for always having heavy winds. If you do not have a reliable knockdown shot I would avoid this course. I would not call this a links setup. Its true that the course has few trees but there is a ton of water. Most of the bunkers are not that penal but due to the wind you need to be very accurate of the tee. High ball hitters will struggle on this course. Based on the usual conditions I feel the course design is too tricked up.

They do nothing to maintain pace. A 5 hour round is NEVER acceptable let alone with a tee time before 8. The group in front of us arrived to the tee 3 minutes past their start time without shoes even on.

I know they need revenue but you are basically telling everyone else playing, we find this acceptable etiquette.

Great course! Tee boxes were perfect. Didn't have to search around for a good standing spot.i hate when tee boxes are all "chewed" up. The size of the tee boxes allow for tees to moved to enough spots for them to recover.speaking of tee boxes, they have plenty to choose from. You can score well here if you play to your handicap as per tee suggestions. Most fairways are a must to hit since the sides slope off and sends your ball into the thick "cabbage". You will be lucky to find your ball.The bunkers are deep and thickness of sand is great!.the greens were spectacular not a mark on them. The included practice range is always great. also very large which made for great grass to hit off with plenty of targets. Do yourself a favor and play this spectacular course.

Greens had been aerated about 2 weeks prior to the round, but were mostly healed and running about 9.5-10 on the stimp. Rest of the course was in fantastic shape.

Bolingbrook is a great links style championship course. It's forgiving off the tee, but not always easy to score with the challenging greens, run off areas and bunkers.

My beef is the paid in full Golf Now reservation with no mention of the airated greens. Playing Bolingbrook is always a treat as I usually opt for more affordable rounds, and I was really disappointed the condition of the greens this time around.
