PrairieView Golf Club
Owned and operated by the Byron Forest Preserve District, Prairieview Golf Course sits on a scenic stretch of land that overlooks the Rock River. The layout will test different skills with plenty of variety, offering both open, links-style holes and tight, tree-lined holes. The design takes advantage of the rolling terrain, incorporating the varying elevations into the large and undulating greens. The breaks can make the greens hard to read and they're made even more challenging by more than 60 bunkers strategically places along the borders. There are also water hazards in the form of ponds and a meandering stream that come into play on five holes. In addition to the course, there is also a 15-acre practice facility with a driving range, two putting greens, and chipping and pitching greens with two bunkers.

This course is awesome

Enjoyable experience for a great Golf Now price. (Half the normal)_ Course is in great shape and very friendly.
Not a bad Sunday
First time I had played here in years definitely lost a lot of trees but the layout still holds up you can now get away with some offline shots on the harder holes. greens were a bit shaggier than I remember but they rolled well just looked a bit starved in spots which may be why they were a bit longer. We played on a Sunday afternoon and with how busy it was found it weird there was no starter no big deal but also saw no ranger which on a weekend is a bold play by hole 3 we were right on the group ahead of us with a group right behind us and so on. I felt bad for the group in front of us a father and his two sons who kept up with the group ahead of them but we had one group that was a couple of groups ahead of us that had everything backed up. A starter could have helped space groups out and a ranger could have helped the pace especially on a hot weekend Beverage cart would have been good to have out for waters and gatorades and such but I understand with Covid they may not have hands free tech to do cards and what not but may be a good investment especially at the very least Friday-Sunday.
Great looking course in great condition. I really like the well managed prairie grass in the no-mow areas. A challenging and classy course. The best electricity can buy.
Very well maintained
This course is in excellent condition, a great value for the money. Located about 40 minutes from my home, but well worth the drive. The whole experience was great, start to finish - I will definitely come back!
Great day for Golf, course in good shape after winter. Making some nice upgrades on the cart paths and I'm guessing adding some nice gardens. Love the course
Friendly Clubhouse staff!
Clubhouse staff was very friendly! The new golf pro, Andrew, introduced himself and told me his story about his previous jobs and his thoughts on making an already great facility into an even greater facility! Prior to the round the clubhouse staff gave me a few course layout pointers, and after the round they asked how it went and asked how I shot. I would highly recommend this course to anyone! For just opening a week ago the course was in great shape! Two thumbs up for the club pro and the superintendent! I will be playing this course a lot more this year, well worth the drive for me. If you haven’t played PV yet, you need to!
Slowest round ever
The course is in ok shape. Greens are pretty shaggy and it is an easy layout. Probably the shortest 7000 yards I have ever played. Pace of play was horrendous. On one hole we had 4 groups (4 tee times) with not a Marshall in sight. Spend your money elsewhere. Not worth the money even with a discounted rate.
Course was in great shape. Well worth the money. Will be sure to play it again before the season is over
The course was in great shape.What a beauty! The vistas, terrain. And if your mind wanders, like mine, it's fun to watch a crop-dusting plane and helicopter as I did today. Staff was friendly. It helps that I got a GolfNow hot deal at 1:18 p.m.
I wondered who designed PV. The late William James Spear! Wouldn't you know it, he also designed another of my area favorites: Marengo Ridge.
Weird City, though. I'm always in awe of those nuclear towers south of the course. PV's carts are powered by who else? Excelon Generation.
By all means, play this beaut.
