Great trap locations, good protection of the par 5’s, play from the right tee box and you should have a great day.

Considering it was only 40 degrees the course played really well.

Live nearby and have driven by this course a hundred times. After sixty rounds at other local courses this summer I finally played Foxford Hills. Hands down the most scenic and well manacured course in the area. On the practice range along with the tee boxes of several holes you'll swear you're in the Carolinas! A course good for all levels of players depending on the tee marker choice. Don't wait to put this one on your must play list. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Only complaint is the snack bar was out of hotdogs? What golf course runs out of hotdogs!? Oh well I'm sure that was a end of season thing.

Foxy Hills is definitely worth the drive from Chicago, sign up for their newsletter for deals. Fun Layout, very challenging but wont beat a high handicapper over the head, The trees on the back 9 make this one of the better public course layouts around.

Took advantage of Golf Now special $29. The course is in great shape, lots of challenging holes. #2 nice wide fairway but the green is narrow and well protected by water and sand.

Greens were fast, but pin placements were fair. Good pace , pretty course. Highly recommended.

The Good: Very nice, upscale layout in Northwest Chicago suburbs is a compilation of links and woodlands engulfed with interesting bunkering. Great Par 5's, including the superb #15, as well as strong Par 3's that require precision. Fair amount of elevation change for an Illinois track. Good course conditions and large greens that run pretty smooth. Good clubhouse, nice on-course amenities, and very strong practice facility. Exceptional staff that will make sure you enjoy your day, especially the starter and rangers. Lots of fairway yardage markers is a plus.

The Bad: No GPS is a bummer. Bunker complexes are visually stunning, but a little thin. Greens are fairly slow and don't hold very well. Good value with coupons or twilight rates, but at $80-$85 peak season, a little steep.

The Verdict: Foxford Hills is a fun golf course that provides ample room of the tee but difficult bunkers and greens that will challenge any player. One of the better public municipal courses in the northwest suburbs. Play it during off-peak or twilight and its a steal for the area.

Best Hole: Without question, the Par 5 15th is one of the best holes in all of Illinois. A downhill tee shot to an approach over a stoned pond to a thin, long green. Just an absolutely beautiful hole.
