Thank you so much for your 5-star review! We hope to see you back again soon.
This is a nice course on Chicago's lakefront just 5 minutes from downtown. The course is challenging enough for every skill level.
Thank you so much for your review! We are happy to hear you enjoyed our course. We hope to see you back again soon.
If you are in Chicago you should play there. The views of the lake, downtown, and Lakeshore Drive make this a unique golfing experience. Course is fine but the experience is first rate.
Weeds on fairways
Not sure where fairways end and where rough begins. Poorly maintained fairways with weeds, untrimmed grass, etc. Tee boxes are pretty unimpressive too. Very poorly maintained
Great course. Horrible staff. They let people take all day in front of you, then yell at you because you are "playing slow" when you have been waiting to tee off at every single hole for the people in front of you to get off the green.
Not a quick 9, but enjoyable track
This course is in pretty good shape considering it’s a public Chicago parks course that is completely full, almost daily. Lately some of the fairway has recently become a little burnt up from lack of rain - it’s in pretty good shape though, for what it is. The greens are slow and have little break. Bunker sand is actually decent, although certainly not on the level of what you would find at pricier courses.
Pace of play isn’t quick. Go somewhere else if you want to blow through 9 quickly - on average it takes me around 2 - 2.30 to get thru. That said, I enjoy the course and love being on the lake after work. There are far worse places to spend extra time.
Staff at the course are great. I would recommend this track to friends, as long as their expectations are in check.
Lovely by the Lake
Playing Marovitz is a Chicago treat! Winds coming off the lake, blue skies, great temps. The staff is friendly and helpful. What I would change is the restroom situation for women [it is very old and could use some updating] and the need for an easier way to get a parking pass. Couldn't they install those parking pass number boxes where you enter the number and are charged through your phone? Hope they tend to this...
Links by Lake Michigan
Great location along the lake, Scottish Links in the Heart of Chicago
9 holes in Chicago
The course is a great bargain because it allows me to maintain my swing and strength in between rounds at 18 hole courses.
Furst time at Sydney Marovitz on Chicago’s beautiful lakefront
I’ve driven, biked, and walked past this course dozens of times. I live nearby now, and booked a tee time. Very nice nine hole course on Lake Michigan. Course was in okay condition. I had a couple of lies in clover, at least one of them in the fairway. Greens were i. Good condition, and the sand was challenging. Surprising length, considering it’s a 9 hole course. Look forward to playing again.
Nice course. Good Track
I had a fun round today. The course conditions were very good. I think the pace of play was somewhat slow as we waited several times during the nine holes. Nice staff here and they had a ranger. It was hot outside, but the course played well. Wish they had a drink cart available or better food and beverage amenities, but I realize it was early in the morning.
Don’t waste your time or money.
Overrated course. Tried to go on a Tuesday morning to get a quick nine holes in. This place is ALWAYS OVERCROWDED. The course packs tee times right on top of each other. It was the worst golf experience I’ve had in a few years. I live down the street from the course and I won’t be ever coming back. Course condition is average at best. Looks like they are trying to change their name inside to promote more cubs merchandise which was weird. Two and a half hour nine hole experience. Pace of play needs to be fixed but this course cares more about money than a positive experience for their customers.
