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.

Never coming back

The staff was rude minus the kid cleaning the carts.

The pace was 3.5 hours/9 holes.

The course attendant wouldn’t stop following us around with his cart because he “liked us” we didn’t come to make new friends dude.

Being a city course you have to deal with non golfers poor etiquette around the course.

Drove off the course after hole 4 because it was already 90 minutes into the round.

Food is garbage.

Blonde waitress with tattoos is excellent

Would not recommend this course for anyone who takes less than 2 hours to play 9. The manager and head pro are completely ineffective and don’t seem to care about anything besides talking to their friends who are around. I paid 30 dollars and still feel ripped off.

Worst employees and rate of play I’ve ever experienced. Reminder it was so bad I drove off the course.
