The greens are just so bad. So bad that Im told they cant have CGA events there! the course was muddy and the greens in bad shape. not to mention the impossible sloped greens. i like tough but unfair is a different story. spent a fortune on the new club house and the course is going to crud.
The course is laid out fairly well and was in great shape. The greens are extremely challenging. Almost unfair to be honest. Be ready to 3 put a few holes!
Tough greens and pins - with the greens dried and some wind its very easy to 3 putt from close.
4:15 round on a Saturday????
I don't know how lucky I got but I bought a hot deals tee time for 2:06pm on a Saturday as a single. I arrived early and hit some balls and when I met my group at the tee box there was no one in front of us or behind us. We played that way until we caught a foursome on 14. Probably only because two of our group dropped after nine and we sped up. I play regularly at Raccoon Creek and it is never under 5 hours. AWESOME!!! Will be back soon.
This is probably the third or fourth time I’ve gone through this here, and it seems to be getting worse . The staff seems to have a problem with people who book on golf now! They pair you up with their regular customers and then when they call your tee time they like to announce that you booked on golf now! It’s actually quite hilarious! If you use golf now and want to feel like a second rate customer , book this course! I’m surprised they don’t have special carts for their golf now customers with flashing neon signs that say second rate golfer!
1st Time, Probably Last Time
Challenging, but fair course from tee to green. But the greens are pretty difficult for the average golfer due to severe sloping and undulations. The pace was bordering on mind-numbingly slow, but that may have just been a random occurrence.
I can now say that I played the course, but I do not have a desire for another round there.
Tee boxes a little long
Love this course! Tee box grass needs to be cut as well as a few fairways. Could be the Arian we had kept the mowers off the course. Greens not as tough as usual. If you think you're putting well play this course I'm late June....
If you think your putting well, your probably not.
If you think you're putting well, go play south suburban! Toughest greens in the metro area if not the state. Good condition for the time of year. Very friendly staff and AWESOME new clubhouse!! It's a must play!
Good, moderate course with challenging greens
This has been on my list to play for a bit. The greens have a reputation for being the primary defenses of the course. Sure enough, this proved accurate. One of the staff told me the greens here are rated the 2nd hardest in the state, second to Bear Dance.
Perhaps the iffy forecast and it being a Monday early in the spring led to a hard-to-turn-down price that got me out in the playable weather window. The large bucket for the range turned out to be a lot of golfballs to warm-up with, more than I could use, so a couple young golfers out for their first golfing experience got a bonus. I probably should have warmed-up with more significant putting given it was my first time here. Playing these fairly sloped greens really emphasizes trying to stay below the hole, if at all possible. Still, it's a fair challenge, at least at this time of the year.
The length at 6683 yards max (5328 min) and the forgiving layout/conditions in early spring probably explains some of the popularity among us average-ish golfers. Deals tend to get gobbled up here. The course was in pretty good shape despite the really dry winter we've had. FWIW, there is a par 3 course to add a few more holes to those who didn't get their fill with 18. Also, this course is quite walkable, <4 hours at a fairly leisurely pace.
The clubhouse renovations looks great. Nice job.
It's worth returning here.
The greens are crazy but fun!
The course overall is very fast, and the practice putting area is really fast. The course greens were not as fast but very fast with lots of slope. This makes for cautious and careful puts, but I really enjoy that more than large flat surfaces. I played in the afternoon and it was windy for a while on the front, then the pace of play picked up on the back and the wind stopped. A great day golfing.
