White Hawk Country Club boasts 36 holes of championship golf, which are divided into four different nines. The Grey Hawk and Black Hawk nines came first, followed by the Red Hawk and finally the Silver Hawk. The Silver Hawk nine is the longest of the four and it is also widely known as the toughest. The golf course incorporates a variety of landscapes from mature woodlands to pristine wetlands. Water has a prominent presence with seven large lakes and a few meandering creeks sprinkled throughout. You'll find that water hazards come into play on what seems like every hole. In addition to the water, the fairways are lined with trees and the green complexes have challenging ridges, tiers, and swales. It's easy to see how White Hawk is ranked as one of the top 10 toughest golf courses in the state.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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

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.
