Classic, challenging and worth the trip & cost to play
This course is a no nonsense, alcohol-free, private club, that is all about the game of golf. Built in 1972, but it feels like it could have been built in 1922, the course was designed by Charles Maddox on a great piece of parkland property in North Barrington horse country. The many trees, wildlife and utter tranquility of the secluded location is the perfect setting for the game. There is some water and enough strategic challenge to keep you engaged with the course at all times. Putting well, demands the right approach shot to the many large and sloped greens. You need a good game and solid course management to score well. A par 72 with a championship slope of 135, it's 6848 from the tips. Choosing the right tee box will serve you well.
We played all 18 in 3.5 hours, no one pushing us nor did we push the group ahead. In carts or walking, the members move. Conditions, this early in the season were fantastic.
There is a small (irons only) practice area. The staff and crew could not be a more helpful and welcoming group. It's a private club with simple services and food, but excellent value no matter the purchase.
I found this experience to be one of the best I've had in the Chicago area. Well worth the one hour + trip from the city to Barrington.
