Independence Day

Course in pretty good shape . A few places have standing water and the traps need some work but the course played well. Only one person working there so hard to get quick service .

No water

The course was nice. I spoke to one staff member who was less then nice when I checked it. It was 85 degrees and humid and there was absolutely no water to drink in the course. All of the water cooler holders were either broke or completely empty. We were never told of this or we would have gotten water at the turn. Not a sight of a cart girl. No refreshments at all while in the course for 4 hours. No ranger in site. Slow play and no etiquette as the group's in front were so slow and refused to let us play through. Value was good but I'll never come back.

We played after a few days of rain causing a lot of flooded areas. Some of the areas were unplayable because they could not be cut. I would try it again during a dry period to see if it was any better. I think they’re trying for improvement but not there yet.

Fun round

The course was in the best condition since I have played it. A bit dry but I am sure that is based on the weather.

I’ve never written a bad review before but...

Simply this course is the worst course that I’ve played in northern Illinois. Not only is the layout brutal, but the actual design and maintenance is equally terrible. There are a handful of good holes, but they don’t come close to redeeming the course as a whole. Even with the price, anywhere is better than here.

Very Wet

Unfortunately with all the rain and mud it was cart path only, even the cart paths were wet and muddy. All in all I liked the course $14 with a cart couldn't beat that. No ranger to keep pace of play moving. We teed off the group in front of us was 2 holes ahead of us and we caught up to them, they wouldn't let us play through not even when I drove my ball into them and the pro or whoever was in the pro shop was a Jag.

Sad & soggy course

Very wet & soggy but the real issue is the fact that they weren’t doing anything to address this or fix this issue. Very unhappy & displeased.

Getting Better

Since ownership has changed hands the course condition has gotten better The fairways could be in a little better shape, but other than that, course played well.

Enjoyable!

I was a little worried when I booked this course just on previous reviews. However, it was a pleasant surprise. Still needs a little more care like others have said but I enjoyed the course. Some short par 4's that you can score on with some other holes that are tight and have water in play. I recommend this course to other's and for sure will be back to play it again. Good job!

not bad but not great

course was decent but some bumpy and bad spots on greens. Tight back none for sure but greens could be a little better. all they need to do is topdress them some and repair the bad spots. I know as took care of golf courses for over 18 years myself.

Don’t miss Antioch

Friendly staff, well mowed, nice to see new hole locations, could use more sand in bunkers. Seems like it’s only going to get better and better with new owner.
