This course is always in top condition.Cart paths only made it a little difficult,but it drained well.Big greens with subtle breaks.Island green on the par three 8th hole.Straight forward layout can play long.Choose the right tees.Not a bad walk.No big hills.Just an enjoyable place to play.

You'd never know this course was run by a Park Department! The course is challenging, nice layout, great condition and the clubhouse and on-course restroom is top notch. Only thing not great is the food. I felt it was overpriced - more like country club prices and the food quality was mediocre at best.

I golf at Aldeen about 10-15 times a year. Course is always in great shape. Soft sand, great fairways, gps and scorecard on the carts and brought water and trees to make it a challenge. The only downfall is th restaurant and bar closes fairly early. I golf here a lot after work and even though it was a beautiful April day they closed at 5. Even in the summer they Weill shut down around 8 or 9. It was in great shape for April and greens will be in even better shape and faster in the next couple weeks.

Aldeen is still a solid golf course. It’s an hour’s Drive for my group and worth it. It’s a shot maker’s layout and even the best players will lose balls from its difficult yet playable conditions. If you want appreciate a Golf challenge and like a good value, play Aldeen in 2018.

A superb public golf course that consistently receives very high marks. Layout is excellent with water, tree and sand hazards enough to challenge your A-game. Alden is also excellently maintained.

The Clubhouse is adequate for a pre or post round bite and beverage for you and your foursome. Unfortunately there are no facilities on grounds to host a “playday” or special event, but the RPD is investing funds over the winter to build them.

I play golf all over Illinois, but have never played at this course until now. What a gem. Lots of hazards but placed well so that you can avoid them. This course is beautiful and well kept.

The only complaint I have is there were geese all over the course.
