Hidden gem in NW suburbs

I’ve played Boone Creek since 2000, and the course is getting better with age. While the layout is pretty straight forward, the grounds crew keep the difficulty up by having longer, thicker ruff and we’ll manicured greens. The pro shop is always very accommodating to help you with all of your needs. I recently booked a larger charity outing at Boone and was blown away by the help that was provided. The bar area is well run, and the food/drink prices are very reasonable.

Boone Creek Golf Course is well worth the trip out to play. You’d be hard pressed to find a better value for the cost at any other local courses.

Outstanding Facility! Worth the trip northwest!

If you’re looking for an outstanding golf experience in the NW Chicago burbs, check out Boone Creek.

They have three great nine-hole courses, earmarked & rotated for nine and 18 hole play, nice driving range, putting green, pro shop and bar/grill for before and after round activities.

The Creekside course was fun to play and beautiful to look at while walking.

Wide open and well maintained

Greens in good shape, rolled and true. Couse is short but fun as pace of play is speedy - completed 18 in 3:30 starting at 0730 on a Sat.

Nice greens, true roll.

Rough tough enough.

Cart girl could use a lesson in golf etiquette. Talking rather loudly while we were attempting to tee off. A couple of times she parked in a manner that blocked the cart path and prevented going around while she waited on other golfers.

Didn’t play. Rained out.

We’ve had several days of rain in Northern Illinois, including all day June 21st. Weren’t able to play. Hopefully another time. I’ve heard good things about the venue, can’t wait to see for myself.

Response from Boone Creek Golf Club on 06/27/2018:
Hello, we're sorry you weren't able to play due to the rain. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Boone Creek

This is a great course tucked conveniently between Crystal lake and McHenry.

I love to play here when I'm try to make some small adjustments. It relatively flat and easy to navigate for those who walk. This is a great course that easy fairly easy to play.

Pastoral Natural Setting

The beauty of Boone Creek is its natural setting. NO houses with a beautiful creek running through it. Also very playable and fair course for players above a 10 hndcp and challenging for low handicappers if played from back tees. Greens over the last 5 years have really become good and turf is also in good condition.Expansive practice area. Course is fairly flat.Great spot for a social round of golf

Something for everyone!

This course offers different challenges for the beginning, intermediate or serious golfer. The "Valley" portion is all about course management, the "Prairie" portion is where distance is king and the "Creekside" portion is a mix of both. Of note, the roughs are thick and often cut as if the course is applying to host the U.S. Open, so keep it in the fairway! Staff members in the pro shop, the bar or on the course are always friendly!
