Length 3535

Rating 0.0
Type Semi-Private
Located just an hour south of downtown Chicago, White Hawk Country Club offers 36 holes of championship golf. The holes are divided into four nines called Red Hawk, Grey Hawk, Black Hawk, and Silver Hawk. The Grey Hawk nine was one of the first nines built back when it was just an 18-hole golf course. It's the second longest of all the nines at 3,535 yards from the back tees, but it's still much shorter than the 3,846-yard Silver Hawk Course, which is White Hawk's toughest layout. Grey Hawk has a traditional links-style layout with strategically placed bunkers and water hazards coming into play throughout. In addition to the four golf courses, White Hawk also has a practice facility with a driving range that has target greens and a short game area with a bunker.

Best Value in Area

Course is in very good condition given the high volume of play. The only detractor is condition of bunkers. Pro-shop, restaurant, starter staff is extremely professional and courteous. Restaurant atmosphere and food is excellent and not over-priced. Holes provide a variety of settings: wetlands, hardwoods. creeks, ponds, heather grasses, etc. A very enjoyable overall experience.

I'm kind of torn about this course because I really want to like it more. Facilities were nice. Staff was friendly. Food was very basic and extremely slow. Course was in pretty good shape. Bunkers were unplayable and in really poor shape. Not holding water but not holding sand either. For being as beat up as the greens were they rolled pretty well. It's a pretty nice course for the price, not sure I'd drive from the city often for it but overall it was pretty enjoyable and can't beat the price for what you get.

All I can say is WOW

This was a real treat. Played the course for the first time and could not believe the conditions for the first week of November. I would really fear to play these greens in the middle of a dry hot summer as they were lightning fast this late in the season and in great shape.

You will use every club in your bag

The only problem I have with this course is pace of play. Every time I play there; there is always one group holding up the entire side. They need a ranger to move s-l-o-w groups along. Played 7 holes in less than an hour, 11 holes took more than 3 hours. A foursome with no players in front of them...3some, 2some, 2some, 2some behind. The four groups bunched up on every hole. All 9 players finished the 4th hole on grey while the 4some played the 5th. No reason for 4 groups to be waiting on a par 4!

Always a clean track

With the exception of playing after a huge outing, White Hawk is creeping up on being the best couse in NWI. With the new owner, alot of issues and course related problems are being addressed. Silver has been completely redone, and is carved into the woods with pristine greens and beautiful, elevated greens. Best value for the money. Just watch out when you book, verify there are no outings or your pace will be 5hrs with hacked up fairways.

Great course, unbelievable bargain!

For only being an hour outside downtown Chicago, this course is a great bargain! The course was in phenomenal condition. It had rained quite a bit the night before so the bunkers were slightly washed out but nearly all were still playable. Greens were a touch on the slow side but I attribute that to how wet the course was. Overall, great find and I will be back!

Worth the Drive

From the time you step on the property you feel like you are at a private country club. The course is just in perfect condition. There is four nines that they rotate. Greens roll like PGA tour greens. Just an overall great course! You can not beat there prices either for these types of golf courses.

I love the wide inviting fairways.

There are four nines at White Hawk. We played Red to Black. Red is fairly flat while Black has more rolling hills. Both have plenty of big bunkers. Most greens are well protected and are large and multi-level. My only complaint is that we followed a fivesome on the back nine. We were just a twosome and they never offered to put us through. However, even that was forgivable because a member of that group aced #6 and we got to hear them celebrate. It was fun.

Excellent facility!

Links style well kept course even after a week or more of no rain and high summer heat. 4 nines all slighty different. fairways and greens excellent shape. Greens fast but fair. GPS on cart a great touch and helped pace of play. Houses on holes on 3 of the 9's but set far back so as to be out of play. Multiple sets of tees so fair for all with good space between. Great clubhouse bar restaurant. Best value in greater Chicago area

Excellently maintained challenging golf course

Played as a single and finished in just over 3 hours. Beware if you have to play the Silverhawk course, I have never lost so many golf balls in 9 holes in my life. If you have played golf for a while and want a challenge, this is it.
