Type Public
Par 71
Length 6463 yards
Slope 124
Rating 71.2

Bartlett Hills Golf Club has been a favorite Chicagoland golf destination since it first opened in 1929. To keep the layout up to modern standards, it has undergone many changes over the years but it still has the same classic character. At 6,463 yards from the back tees, this traditional layout might not be long but it still provides a fair test. Rather than distance, the golf course demands smart play and accurate shot placement thanks to narrow, tree-lined fairways and several tricky doglegs. You might not have many chances to use your driver but you'll definitely get some iron practice. There isn't too much trouble off of the tees at Bartlett Hills G.C. But greenside you'll be faced with nearly 30 strategically placed bunkers and water hazards come into play on seven holes, which include some forced carries.

tree and hills

Old park district course I have played since the 78's.The greens and fairways were redone years ago.Now ,it's all bent grass.Lots of trees,very hilly,hard to walk unless you are in good health.Back nine has some holes close together making it tight.No level holes until the 17th.not long but very challenging.

Good for a quicker round

This course is close to our house and we play there quite a bit. The course is on the shorter side and if you can hit it straight consistently, you'll tear it up. It gets tricky off the fairway and the greens do have some slope making for some difficult puts. Generally the pace of play is very good and if the course is pretty open a 3 hour round is definitely doable.

Love this course. Fun layout challenging but fair. Great staff. Good value.

Side note. Hey golf now you owe me a refund for a round cancelled due to weather. Your current system for addressing these concerns suck.

Bring your bug spray when you come to this course. It was so awful there, was very hard to play with mosquitos and nats all over you. I’ll go back if I’m desperate. Still a decent course overall.

Bartlett Hills - Sporty Municipal Track in West Chicago Burbs

The Good: This goofy, yet enjoyable sporty Charles Maddox & Frank P. MacDonald design from 1924 was purchased by the Village of Bartlett in the late 1970's. Now one of the better municipal courses in the western Chicago suburbs, it has a nice parkland feel with several interesting short Par-4's and a unique feature of a closing Par-3! Considering it is Covid-19 season, I didn't get a chance to see the clubhouse or meet staff, but the service over the phone was very pleasant. Good course conditions considering all the recent rain and fun, undulating small greens were in good shape. Has what appears to be a very nice driving range, although it wasn't open. Good value, especially if you can get a deal.

The Bad: The routing is odd with several similar length Par-4's side-by-side on the front half & a few claustrophic holes on the back nine due to overhanging trees. The Par-5's are fairly uninteresting compared to the nice quartet of Par-3's. No on-course restrooms.

The Verdict: Bartlett Hills is another solid option in the public golf rich area in the western Chicago burbs. Would be even better if they take a chainsaw to some trees. Fun track!

Best Hole: The 2nd hole is a strategic gem to get your blood pumping. A downhill tree shot requires either a conservative iron off the tee or a demanding cut draw to carry a creek.
