Bowes Creek is a phenomenal course! I enjoyed it greatly despite not playing my best, which is always hard to do. Looking to get out there again and go low next time! Very challenging, but you can score if you're on.
Great Golf Expderience
Bowes Creek is an excellent golf course. The holes are very scenic and well laid out. Sand traps are in excellent condition, however, I'd prefer a more manicured lip on the traps. The course can be played at any level of difficulty depending upon tee selection. The white tees at 5942 yards is deceptively difficult with a 69.5/133 rating. The tips stretch out to 6794 yards and a 73.4/142 rating. It's also a nice to have a course that still provides free range balls. On hot days they bring out iced towels.
Back Nine Blues
Way too long on back nine. Pick up my ball on 18, could not take it anymore.
Love this course.
my favorite course in illinois!! dont play it that much because its usually pretty pricey for me but caught an unbelievable hot deal that i couldnt pass up. very happy i didnt the course is beautiful i wouldnt call it easy but it is pretty wide open.i usually have a problem with slicing my drives at least at this course i have a fighting chance of the ball being playable. I do have to say the greens were pretty chewed up only because of people not repairing their ball marks, other than that the place is pristine. the staff is so friendly, everyone i talked with!!! great course and cant wait to play it again.
One of Chicagoland's Finest
Course is very challenging but incredibly well maintained. Bunkers, fairways, rough and greens in great shape. Beautiful day and the course was packed. A little slow, but considering the course difficulty and number of patrons, played in about 5 hours. Staff is first rate and Mary, behind the counter, went above and beyond the call of duty, due to my screw up. Course, staff and course amenities are certainly like belonging to a country club.
Great golf course. Well-maintained and very challenging
Bowes lived up to its reputation
As a 72 yr old 12 hdcp senior, I played the forward (white) tees 5945 yds slope 133. The course conditioning was first rate, and the layout was well designed and challenging. By playing it forward I was able to reach all the greens and had several GIRs. Mandatory to stay in the fairway as the rough was tough, and both fairway and greenside bunkers were formidable hazards with naturalized appearance and lined with tall fescue. Greens ran medium fast and true, but my only issue was that speed was not consistent from hole to hole probably due to the heavy rain we have had the past week. Close cropped areas around greens gave tight lies, and I found putting from 10-15 feet off the green to be the best strategy. Sand traps were well maintained and I found best results with my heavy high bounce sand wedge. I played on a fabulous GN Hot Deal and look forward to getting back there again soon.
