A great bonus round at an wonderful course!

We don’t play golf in December north of Chicago, but we had another mid 50 weather day! With all the rain the day before, the course was wet, but definitely playable!

Chalet Hills is a fun, challenging course. Unfortunately, the egocentric hackers who insist on teeing from the tips as they progress slowly around the course dampens the fun. The lack of rangers have been an issue here, but hard to have them in late December.

Chalet Hills in Cary IL

Great course and with snow melting only the day before, we could not imagine how well it had drained and the excellent fall shape of the course.

Great course.

Had a nice time during the round. A frost issue pushed all times back, so it turned into a 5 and a half hour round which is a bit crazy. The cart path was also in really bad shape. Especially on some of those sharp turns and steep inclines.

Played on a wet Saturday

Half the holes were cart path only so play was a bit slow. The greens are fast and good there. The only real complaint is that they had a special for $35 but we paid $55 in early October since we booked online and the front desk wouldn't give us the difference. Bummer.

Tough but good

Lots of risk reward shots on this course. Usually in good condition and pretty good pace of play most of the time, have probably played this course around 20 times. Has come down in price though various deals and such as well.

Good course to play if you like a challenge!

Almost like a private

This course would get a legit 5 star if it weren’t for the slow play. I was a single, tee’d off at 9:45 and didn’t finish til 2:30. This course is almost immaculate and I have nothing but positive things to say about everything except the pace of play and lack of rangers to “encourage” faster play or allowing others to play through. Then again, I did play 2 balls because of the waiting which essentially gave me 36 holes for the price of 18. If you’ve never played it, try it out, it’s definitely worth the $35 weekday rate

Enjoyable

Had an enjoyable time on the course. Still don’t understand how this course can’t have cart paths that are paved. There is also too many areas where carts aren’t allowed which requires bringing multiple clubs to the ball.

Cary Holds the Best Gems

Tee time: 3:48 on a Friday ($25). If you like great golf, look no further than Cary, IL. Chalet Hills and Foxford Hills are beautiful and two of my favorite tracks in the Chicagoland area. I love Chalet because it is well kept, challenging, and forces you to use every club in your bag. No two holes are alike! Similar to others, my only complaint is that there is no driving range and the carts do not have GPS. Living in Chicago, I don't get to play this course often, but when I do it's a huge treat. It's time I move out of the city so I can start playing Chalet Hills (and Foxford Hills) on the regular.

Great Value

This is a tough course with a lot of undulation. Unlike most courses in IL. Great value for the course. Greens and fairways consistently in very good shape The course needs some money put in to extra maintenance to improve the looks and some playability in spots. Could be one of the great courses in the state. Friendly staff. Highly recommend.

First attempt

The course was really well kept and had a lot of fun water features. As a new golfer I was told to play from the green markers but found I was much better off playing from the white tees. The only complaints I have was no driving range to warm up and the pace was way too slow due to a large group. Other than that I am going back for more.
