Not ready for play
I played front nine twice. The thing is pin flags for all 9 holes were not set on the greens, so I had to make shots without target. I set the flags after cup in each hole, but other players did just lay the flags on the greens after their play, so when I played rhe 2nd front nine, glags were not set and just on the green. I made a call from the course a few times, but no one answered, although staff members were in the club house.
Real fun course would definitely play again! The different elevations make it a awesome view and challenging. The staff was super friendly. I’ll be going back for sure.
Nice course in good shape. Staff very friendly. I would play here again.
Thank you for your rating and review. We are glad you enjoyed your round of golf.
Tons of great holes and friendly staff. And got a great deal so I would definitely recommend trying out this course!
Good value but....
Staff was great! $46 online reservation for Sunday if holiday weekend.
Cart shortage?? Only one working unit avaiat our teatime,( lots on repair area), supposed reason was several groups ahead went 1 man per cart. If so that’s something the starter should have controlled.
We did get out 20 min lo
The worst course
This has to be the worst course in Chicagoland. I can't believe people even say this is a decent to good course. The fairway length was almost as long as most courses second rough and the rough was above your shoes. They haven't cut that grass in well over a week. Then they push us back almost an hour because of the senior's members who were taking their sweet time teeing off and also a couple groups had groups of 5 or more. It's an embarrassment and I hope someone buys this course and fires everyone there. These people should never be allowed to work at a golf course again.
We had not played Villa Olivia for a couple of years because of poor conditions. Decided to try it because we had some good memories from the good young days when we played it often. We were pleasantly surprised that the conditions were much better.
Thank you for your feedback and rating. We are glad you came back and enjoyed your round of golf with us.
It was very hard to understand why this course could not cut or maintain tee boxes. Line you were teeing off on your back yard. Course layout is nice could be a very nice course if taken care of. The 18 dollar golf now rate made it a value . I would never pay full price.
This course was the worst maintained course I’ve ever played on. Conditions were disgusting. So many weeds in the fairway, it’s hard to call it a fairway. I’ll never play here again, especially at that price. No idea how anyone can call this place a golf course.
Cut your grass
The course could be amazing if they invested in a lawnmower. Weeds everywhere, it was incredibly hard to find balls that week all hit barely in the rough. Collectively we lost at least a box of balls. It was a joke to us at the end. They need to invest in weed killer and cut their grass
For the time of year the course was ok condition. There is upgrades going on the back nine. Halfway house was open . But not good. For the money and novice player this course is for you. Shot75 second time out this year.
Great early season special
First time playing this course - was limited to playing the front 9 - early in sesson before course
conditions would improve - there are some nice -
challenging holes on the front 9 - will need to return when couse is in mid season form
Not well taken care of...
The course just is not maintained well. Seems like they are trying to extract as much money out of the property as they can and put VERY little back into the course.
There are 3 holes (15,16,17) nicely taken care of, but unfortunately all the other holes are poor (at best).
I would not recommend this course and have no plans to ever stop at this course again unless my car breaks down in front of the property entrance!
Tee boxes are pretty bad. Grass was long and very uneven. Have fun on the par 3s.
Be ready to loose balls if you can hit a fairway on the front 9. Lost a bunch of balls due not not being able to find them in the rough due to length and dandelions.
Other than those issues the course was fun.
