Sandy and damp
Nice course, lost many trees in the last few years, but still puts a premium on keeping the ball in the fairway.
It played so slow it 2 1/2 hours to play 9 holes as I said before the grass is to long that makes slow play. Maybe I will play the county courses. The park district sucks.
Lots of players on the front 9. Since most only played 9, the back 9 was wide open and no pressure to keep moving.
Grass is still to long-makes for slow play-the greens are full of pine needles.
Hello, thank you for taking the time to review Sandy Hollow Golf Course. We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars, but we hope you'll give us another try in the near future.
This course is a hidden gem . A must play if your in the neighborhood . Staff very friendly . Great scenery . Challenging for all skills. I will play this course again. The price for the course was a steal .
Municipal golf as good as it can be
$22 to walk on a Saturday morning. What's not to like? Best breakfast sandwich ever, thanks Linda!
First time player, hope to have many more opportunities. Drove over an hour to get here. Chose this course based on Golf Advisor ratings, 4.5 out of 5. And I was not disappointed. Course was in great shape and beautiful. Challenging but fair. Numerous elevation changes add to the beauty of the course. Staff was very friendly. Played with a friend and we both decided we would definitely come back again.
WHO is controlling number of players in the groups??
I don't get why Sandy Hollow or the Rockford park district is doing making only 2-4 players can sign up on Golf Now tee times. They are ''walking only'' times for crying out loud.. Most of my friends work so I am a single most of the time.. WHAT A JOKE
Nice course but they need more carts
Booked a tee time through golf now. Did not realize the cost did not include a cart until we checked in. Additional $16.00 per person for a cart. Lesson learned. I do have to say it was a very nice course though and have played here before. Had a good time.
Sandy Hollow is a public jem. In great shape right now. Greens are rolling great too. Play this coures, you won't be dissapointed!
Amazing customer service from the Golf Pro
The Golf Pro at Sandy Hollow is amazing! She was very attentive and worked so well with our group even throwing in a few jokes. We absolutely loved Ann and the park district could use more people like her!
Two Par 3’s are too long
Otherwise this is a nice public course with great rates. The one problem I noted in the title is that two par 3’s are unreachable in one stroke for the average golfer. One is 225 yards from the regular tees and the other is 191 yards straight uphill so it plays 225 yards.
Can't beat the price
$10 walking price, you can't beat it. Easy course to walk. And the staff is1st class.
Nice layout and relatively upscale. Lot of walkers, but not so slow that it affected play. Many long par 4s compared to typical courses in our area. Not much difference between longest and shortest tees. Many mature trees lining the fairways. Beautiful greens with some interesting breaks. Few tricky dog-legs. Would help to have played the course and understand where to position and the roll of the greens. Not a course for beginners.
