Underwhelming

From the check in process, staff friendliness / attentiveness and pace of play it was all just OK. There is no GPS on the cart and the carts are noisy and old. The driving range / practice facility is great and the condition of the course was better than I had expected. Of the 4 courses at Cog Hill, this one is definitely the least interesting but does have some good holes. With the course as short and relatively easy, it should not have been a 4 hr, 40 minute round. I'll skip this one going forward and play on either course 2 or 4 moving forward.

Relatively Easy, Fun Layout, Slightly Over Priced

For the entry level courses at Cog Hill, I prefer #1 over #3. For some reason there seems to be a little more design and need to be a little more thoughtful with your approach. It has a few fairways with varying elevation and one with a blind approach. It also seems to play longer than #1 even though total yards from tips is less. Only three par 5's that aren't very long but more challenge on Par 3 &4's. 235 yard par 3 seems strange for this course and can slow the pace at times. They lost a lot of trees and it would be great to see them replace some of the lost ones.

Course conditions are always above average. Greens are always slow on this course. It is very scenic and always fun to visit and play here.

Cool Course

Nice course with tree lined fairways and plenty of greenside bunkers. Short course (about 6300 from the tips), accuracy is key off the tee, as you can miss on the wrong side of the fairway and have trees blocking your approach. A few blind shots and doglegs. Greens were running a little slow, but had rained the previous day. If they are usually that slow though, you can be really aggressive with chip shots. Nice practice facility, and great old clubhouse. Western Open used to be played on Number 4, but pretty cool to hit balls on the range where I'd watch the pros when I was a kid. Staff was very friendly.

Only negative was the pace of play. The group in front of us on the front 9 was brutally slow, and when they left, we were stuck behind another slow group on the back. It was Sunday twilight, but still.

Pace of play problems

Played today with my dad ans a friend. 4:45 round. Group in front of us was a hole+ behind for most of the day. Several rangers on the course but none of them say or do anything. Most of the time they sit together under a tree and chat about god knows what. Several greens are also in rough shape
