This is a Country Club

The course is a real challenge. Locals are known to call this lost ball Marsh due to narrow fairways and unforgiving water hazards...oh did I mention the marsh. Some municipal courses are neglected and over crowded. Because of price $50+ a round it keeps the crowds away. Beautiful greens and clubhouse. More in line with a private club.

Gorgeous, but Gimmicky

We played a morning round this past Saturday at Lost Marsh and were really impressed with the facilities and solid course conditions. The first hole is particularly striking and as reviews all mention, the first five holes are BRUTAL if you're a mid-high handicapper. The course is super interesting and fun, but as you get into the middle holes, our foursome felt that the layout becomes shockingly unfair. There are a ton of blind shots that lead to penalty outcomes for good shots, and multiple holes in a row in which great shots in the fairway are rewarded with nearly impossible lies behind multiple overhanging trees on the fairway. Greens were tricky but in excellent shape. A few of the fairways look to be in rough shape on the edges, but overall a cool place to go not far from the city. Given the pandemic, there wasn't really a way to enjoy the amenities, but the clubhouse is beautiful and looks to be a neat spot to hangout!

It's not too far from Harborside and does a very similar thing at a much lower price. That said, Harborside's course is far more accommodating to the average golfer albeit at a price. Well worth a trip, but possibly not a trip back that soon!

Beautiful Course, Poor Pace Today

This course is beautiful and challenging. Today's pace was terribly slow. 4 hours after 14. Will absolutely play again for the same rate.

Terrible Staff and Policies

Wanted to walk, they wouldn’t let us walk. Then they wouldn’t let us get our own carts (even though we were the third group off and there were TONS of carts ready to go, and we were willing to pay for them). We were trying to be cautious due to COVID and have family members who are in an at risk groups, so sharing carts with people outside my family group is not an option. Didn’t show anything on the site that said single carts aren’t allowed. Left instead of caving to policy.

Would have most likely been a multiple time customer as the course looked decent, but won’t be back again. Dumb policy and inflexible. Hope the lost greens fees and future lost greens fees were worth it for them.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We're sorry to hear about the confusion during your round with us and that you rated your experience 1-star. We limit the amount of single rider carts because is it so busy this time of year and we don't want to run out of carts. As far as our walking policy, we have updated our policy to allow up to 2 people in a foursome to walk if they prefer to. We appreciate your feedback to help us serve our customers better and hope you reconsider returning for another round soon. Thanks for playing Lost Marsh Golf Course.

Finally made the trip

I've been reading about lost marsh for several years now, and we finally played it. It was a really fun course and awesome layout especially being in the middle of the region. Deer live on the course which is pretty cool. The first 5 holes have lots water on them. Bring lots of golf balls. The rest of the course plays pretty difficult. Conditions were a little less than desirable. Lots of water damage in the fairways and the greens had tons of pock marks on them.

All and all a really nice course. I'd gladly play it again.

Fun course to play and well worth the price. Course was in great shape all around. I rank it in the top 3 public courses around. 10+ handicaps bring plenty of golf balls if you make it through the first 5 holes you're good

Challenging Layout, Well Maintained

Always a favorite in the Chicago area. First 4 holes are very difficult as you navigate water in every direction. Once it opens up, more opportunities to score. Be careful of the sharp doglegs and blind shots-- helps to have seen the track once or twice. Fantastic clubhouse. Highly recommend if looking for a well-maintained, challenging layout.

Love / Hate Relationship with this Hidden Gem

I've played this course twice this year, the first time being in June and recently this week. This is the best course in Chicagoland for the price. The layout is amazing. The first 4 holes force you to hit great shots then it opens up to let the big dogs eat after that. Conditions were great even after heavy rain the nights before. It's a shame people don't fix their divots, if they did the conditions would easily rival harborside but with a much spicier layout. Bring some extra balls if you don't hit em straight, there's a reason "Lost" is in the name.

Great Layout

This course has you playing every club in the bag. It has you thinking on each hole where you want to land your ball. The greens are undulating so once you are on the green you need to play the slopes. I would recommend this course to any golfer that wants a challenging course to play. It offers four tees so the beginner can play to their level all the way to the pro tees.
