Rating 71.5

Situated just 30 minutes from downtown Chicago, White Pines Golf Club has been a popular spot for both locals and visitors. The club offers two courses, the East and the West. The West Course is longer than the East by 400 yards and considered slightly more challenging. The layout is relatively tight and there is an abundance of trees, which means you'll need to be accurate to do well. The greens are large and challenging with difficult-to-read breaks. There is also minimal, but strategic bunkering along the greensides. The fairways provide plenty of variety with some that are narrow and heavily tree-lined and others that are wide with no trees in sight. The golf course has several challenging holes but it's forgiving enough for beginners to approach with confidence.

Nice layout

Good golf course. I thought it was a good round and enjoyable. However, the pace of play was slow. We were a three some who waited on practically every shot during the round as the two foursomes were very very slow. Course was wet, but to be expected as there was a lot of rain this week. I really thought this track was a good test though and I would play it again.

I’ll Play It Again

The west course is scenic and generously spacious. with plenty of shade. The greens are reasonably challenging and well maintained. The score cards could use more yardage detail and less advertising, since the GPS system is lacking some (a few water hazards came as a surprise). But it’s hard to lose your ball.

White pines west course

This is a really nice course and reasonably priced. I played the West course and it was fairly open and in good shape.

Good value for the cost. I’ll come back.

Horrible Condition

The trouble started right from the beginning. Went to the cart barn to get a cart, stood there for 10 mins and no one was there. Walked to the starter and said I need a cart and he replied, “I don’t know what to tell you, they must be out so you’re going to have to wait.” I could see a ton of carts in the barn so I know they weren’t out. So we ended up grabbing some guy’s dirty cart that he brought in just so we didn’t miss our time. The younger staff all had basketball shorts and tee shirts on and the starters just a plain, personal polo, not staff shirts. Course conditions were terrible. Most tee boxes were completely dead, fairways and rough a mix of weeds and grass and dirt around the greens. (See pictures). I won’t be back!

Nice day, but..

pace of play was a bit ridiculous. Front 9 in under 2 hours with a threesome. Made the turn and the group in front of us was horrible. 45 minutes to play 10 and 11, and start 12. Round ended up being over 5 hours. Ranger was out on the course reading the paper or something. Had nothing to say about a slow group that was holding up 3 other groups. Pretty frustrating.
