Green Garden. Blue Course

Really liked the layout, preferred the front 9 over the back 9 though. Greens were recently air rated so it was hard to get a true roll today on putts. Other than that course was in really good shape for this time of the year . Staff was very friendly & helpful

Choose Your Tee Time Wisely

The Good:
Green Gardens (all three courses) are in great shape this year. Maintenance is great and the course is well kept. The Staff was pleasant. Greens in good shape and fairways well kept. The course is fairly open with some challenging holes. The Gold and Blue courses have good length and enjoyable to play.

The Bad:
The pace of play. The two rounds I have played here this year have been the slowest all year of anywhere I’ve golfed. Major backups at every hole. 4-1/2 hour rounds both times. Hard to feel good about your day out when you are constantly waiting each hole. My suggestion is play a less busy day or time. Would make a big difference.

The Ugly:
They don’t have enough carts to support their tee times. Had to stand in a line for 30 mins waiting for carts to come in from previous groups. There were about 20 other people waiting with me. Arrived early to use the practice greens and instead had to wait for a cart. Once again, choose a less busy time And you won’t have to deal with this.

Good Course, but be alert

Course was in good shape, weather was outstanding and as such it was packed on a Saturday morning. First time playing there so was not familiar with the layout going in. Quite a few holes have the Blue and Gold sides playing with/at each other so you have to be aware at who's hitting and from where. Heard a guy yell out from another hole that he "got hit" by an errant shot, hopefully it was a Titleist! Pace was a little slow but it was such a nice day it's to be expected. Overall happy, would play again

Good Course - Not So Good Experience

Course layout and conditions were good, however the pace of play was terrible! We had to wait “in line” from tee to tee on the back 9 for 10+minutes.

The starter was rude when we arrived to head off to the 1st tee...(but friendly to the group in front of us, who he allowed to play on the Blue course even though they booked to play the Gold course). No one ever came around patrolling the course or pace of play.

Solid course

I’ve played here a few times on the blue and gold courses. Challenging enough without being crazy. The greens will test your putter with movement and elevation. Perfect for a beginner-intermediate golfer.

winter golf

Green Gardens keeps the blue course open all winter long and is great when unusually warm weather hits Chicago area. The course was clear of leaves and rough was short enough that finding balls was easy. The staff is great and having the dome for warming up before heading out is a real bonus in the winter.
