Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
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.
One thing is poor maintenance the grass was not cut and the car patches where bad shape and no good way to go to the next hole and the gateways where sport it was that bad bad bad it suck.
I played the Blue Course, weather was perfect, some slow players on the first 12 holes then it cleared up. Course in great condition, fairways and greens excellent, rough is tough and wet. overall a great day.
Gg blue course
Course was in great shape. Great value for money. Enjoyed it more than gold and I enjoyed the gold plenty
Course is playing nice. Good value and pace of play was great.
Love.. love this course
It appears the new management is not very flexible ... rain.. no rain check... 5 min late.. pay extra over online rate! I still love the course! Hope I don’t have to find another favorite???
Course was in very good shape for wet conditions. I play this course a few times a year. $26 for 18 w/cart is a good deal. Pace of play was great. Rain kept many people away. The blue has a more traditional lay out than the gold. The gold has more gimmicky holes which are fun the first couple times playing them. The bar inside is good for after your round. Golf dome is also nice for a warm up before play. I would like to play the emerald course more but it never seems to be open. I would recommend playing this course St twilight tee times but not sure I would pay premium prices to play.
Green Garden - Course in good shape for Aprol
The greens were in great shape and I enjoyed a 70 degree day, which was perfect for April as I caught one of our very few good weather days. I had no complaints regarding the course conditions in April.
Course with racist history unadressed
The course has a notorious past for known racist behavior and it was my understanding that the course was closed some time ago due to various reasons. Seems like the issues with racism have not been addressed. While playing our round in under 4 hours we were attacked verbally by a fellow golfer who was wearing knickers. He felt that we were playing too slow for him and used all kinds of racial slurs while talking to us.I will probably not play here again until this course proves to be more friendly to minority golfers.
I would first like to apologize for the unfortunate incident which occurred while you were playing at our golf course. We certainly do not condone such behavior and welcome all golfers to our facility. If you would contact me by phone I would like to discuss this further and extend an invitation to come play our golf course again. I can be reached at 815-469-3350.
Solid for the money
Course is well maintained but some traps need work. Hole positions are difficult, making the course a bit harder than it might appear. Green fees are priced right, always under $50, but range is a bit pricey. It seems like the other golfers on the course are always friendly and I feel like the ettiqutte here amongst players is the best of any course. My biggest criticism is the course is understaffed. My biggest endorsement is that it's the best value on the southside.
Course is in good shape
I enjoyed playing there , fairways and greens are in good playing condition
Course is improving but....
The course is improving over prior years, however, there is still a bit too much weed growth to call the course beautiful. Simple fertilizer with weed killer would really help. Dead ash trees have been removed so the course looks much, much better than last year. Fairways are in pretty good shape, as are the greens. The course (gold or blue) plays well and fellow golfers are always friendly. Snack shops around the turns are now open (hurray!) and there has been a snack cart out each time we have been there. This is helpful and always worthy of a good tip. We were scheduled for the Blue course, but 5 foursomes of high school boys walking were ahead of us. (Agh!) As we approached the tee area, their coach asked us why we were there and told us we would be very slow. Quite odd. We returned to the starter, who allowed us to move to the Gold course where we had a good pace of play. The course is hooked into YamaTrack, but be sure your iphone is fully charged as the carts do not have chargers.
