Foxford Hills is worth a visit
Foxford Hills is a well maintained and designed course. The various tee boxes allow for players of all skill levels to enjoy playing there.
My most recent round was right before Thanksgiving and there had been rain earlier in the week. I was surprised to see that carts were allowed, but the course was in great shape for this time of year. The young lady in the pro shop was very pleasant and did her job quickly and correctly.
I hadn't played this course in a couple of years, but I will definitely be going back next summer.
Absolutely gorgeous course. Extremely well-kept and the layout is challenging, but not too difficult. I had forgotten how much I love this course. Extreme value for the money. Highly recommended.
Solid layout and challenging course
A gem of course in the NW suburbs. Really nice layout and challenging. Greens hold. Some nice elevation change on holes.
Greens are nice...but there are a couple that seemed were faster than others.
Course was in great condition. Would recommend it...great course for the price.
This course is one of my favorites. Unfortunately people no longer repair hallmarks anymore. Greens were just ok. The sand traps were also in really poor shape. The staff here is awesome, it makes for a nice atmosphere. The pace of play wasn't bad on the front but when we made the turn we waited on Every shot.
Much Poorer Condition Than Past
My son and I played Foxford Hills last Sunday and the condition of the greens and bunkers was very disappointing and much different than our past visits. Many of the greens were aerated recently, but there didn't appear to be any top dressing applied (or perhaps it had washed away)? The result was very bumpy surfaces all around. I would only lay a portion of the blame on the course maintenance staff, as I have never seen so many ball and spike marks in my life! I find it disturbing how many playesr have total disregard for their ball marks, step on cups,drag their feet on wet greens and on this day, leave rakes in the bunker right next to where they played their bunker shot from and neglect to rake it! Our tee time was just after noon and it seemed like there was three days worth of divots on par 3 tees and seemingly at the very least 10-15 huge ball marks on every green. Sorry not to recommend this track as it is a nice layout with some really interesting holes. The conditions were really pretty bad, however!
Could be Great but Good Course
The staff was great. The layout is good. The course was in good shape overall but 5 greens were very best up with ball marks. Two so bad we made them automatic 2 putts. The Pace I’d Play was 4:50 for a 9 am start. That is unacceptable . Likely to come back.
Great shape - good challenge - wish it was closer to home - I always enjoy this layout - first time this year and I will definitely be back
Great course in really good condition. A few ball marks on the greens were the only flaw in condition, but not too bad for a public course. Very pretty, unique holes. Well bunkered approach shots and some tough pin positions. You'll use every club in the bag and should try to come in from the correct side of the fairway to avoid some of those bunkers. It was a 45 minute drive, but well worth it.
Wonderful Layout - still 3.5 stars
See my 8/25/18 and 8/27/17 reviews. Overall course is in much better shape than it was last year. Sand traps were maintained but all the rains many contained puddles and do not drain well. Once they dry out they'll probably be sketchy bottoms that won't have any sand in the them (just dirt). And most players don't rake them or even attempt to rake them properly. The greens can be very challenging for the weekend warrior novices and several feature some pretty extreme contours. Greens were speedy but pockmarked by old ball marks some repaired properly and some not. Extremely wet as well to the point where overweight hackers wearing soft spikes left footprint indentations all over the place. Repaired over 40 obvious ball marks that were not my own.....you are constantly cleaning up after others - sand trap debris/pebbles or ball mark turf. Foxford is a wonderful scenic and challenging layout if golfers would actually take care of this place. Would be fun to play more often except you have to gird yourself for JB Holmes INCREDIBLY SLOW PLAY. You can never ever get a flow going. Yesterday the group in front of us wouldn't be done teeing off until the group in front of them was halfway through putting on the next green. The tee sheet wasn't really completely full - as usual the back nine turned into a frustrating sit around and wait turtle crawl. A FIVE HOUR PLUS round is completely normal here. A full star and a half downgrade. 3.5 stars. Foxford could easily be four star plus (others seem to really overrate this place - I guess they embrace slow play & sloppy non caring golfers who do absolutely nothing to maintain it for following groups) - full range/practice areas/bathrooms on course and even a lone shower post round if needed. Decent clubhouse with no view of the course. Pleasant frequent nurse service was provided. $40 value. Recommend for the layout and overall challenge but only play if the tee sheet is light or you're one of first ones off at crack of dawn.
Love the layout. Challenging holes and beautifully set up. Number 2 hits you fast as probably the hardest par 5 around . So many great holes. Number 15... if you get it good off the tee, there’s a good chance to get there in 2 and it’s always fun to try. Good par 3’s too. Only slight would be that the finishing hole is a bit lame... but still challenging
