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.

I played Bartlett Hills for the first time despite having grown up in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and value of the course. There are a lot of big old trees framing the fairways, and a nice mix of challenging and forgiving holes. The par 5's are not very long and often times reachable in two. The course condition was great despite the dry conditions the Chicago area has seen over the last several weeks.

I would definitely recommend playing this course if you are near the northwest suburbs.

live 3 minutes from this place. play here all the time. inexpensive and usually in decent shape. nothing special but still an enjoyable track. people are always friendly. unlike many places now-a-days, they actually let you hit off the grass on the range. food has gotten way better over the last couple years. pretty good now.

Kind of an underrated course. Good mix of easy and tough holes. Holes 8,9, & 12 will give a low handicapper all they can handle..Elevated greens make this course a challenge if your short/mid irons are not on point. Solid course, always in good shape, bunkers are just ok, not enough sand. Greens were in really good shape for the early season. Will definitely be back!

Perfect weather day and course conditions were excellent with the exception of some bunkers because of recent rain. Pace of play was brutal . We finished in the dark after over five hours. Staff is always friendly. However, there are no rangers to move slow groups. We waited to hit on every hole.
