Had a 6:52 am tee time on Memorial Day hoping we could beat some of the rush. Was not able to tee off until 7:15 because there was no starter and the clubhouse let two foursomes with tee times after 7:30 start ahead of us.
Had to wait at every tee box thereafter. Great course if you have 5 and a half hours and don’t mind starting half an hour after your tee time.
I caught a hot deal on GolfNow and played this course for $14. The greens were excellent. Hole 10 is under repair, but the rest of the course is solid.
Great value for the money.
Greens and sand traps in great shape. Fairways need work; there was evidence of ongoing work on course. Great value for the money. Will be back.
The course was in great shape even though it was raining lightly for half the round. Warm enough for 11/2 to enjoy a fall round of golf in Chicago!
Fun course for the price
I golf frequently and play decent at times - roughly a 16 handicap...just to paint a picture of the type of golfer reviewing this course.
All in all the course met my expectations for the price I paid (under 30 to ride 18).
-Course has some rough spots - nothing too bad, but some rough/muddy patches and worn out tee boxes or greens - all playable though
-a few holes play at each other so on a busier day I imagine you would hear "fore" a lot
- i really liked they had a driving range at the course...it wasn't anything fancy but it's nice to have some warm up shots before u begin
- course had some fun and unique holes - a few water shots and twists and bends
- the price is right , especially if u can find an online deal.
- pace of play was quick on Columbus Day, not sure how it plays on weekends
Overall you'll get what u pay for here. It's a fun course that has more openness and easier holes, especially off the tee, but will also present some challenges.
Good but need to get people to repair ball marks
Overall I had a great time playing here. The only real complaint I could voice about it is that there were a lot of ball marks on the greens that hadn’t been repaired. The greens were very receptive and soft but rolled pretty quick. Be advised that most of the holes have a blind drive. You’ve got to either know the course well or use a good gps. Also I had to be careful to wait long enough for people ahead of me to move out of the landing zones before I hit.
Great course. Good, open layout, well maintained, nice hills, good pace. Unlike other courses in Chicago, holes where someone who drives 270-280 can actually hit driver without worrying about water, doglegs, etc. made for shorter hitters. Really some of the most fun I’ve had playing golf in Chicago.
Shot 78 and im a 6.3 index and the course was in great shape every mistake i made was definately not the greens or the grass, great course from the tips.
White....unless ur a 15+ play blue three of four par threes were 200+ with the biggest at 235 yrds, really goid shape for the value and challenge was fast play if ur into gimmies and rushing off the course but had a grwat round.
This was my second time playing this course and I really enjoyed it!
A hidden jem. Great and easy course. The wait was long as many beginners and not familiar with course etiquette; however, the rangers did a good job moving them along. Will play again
Average course tease and greens were in good condition for this time of year fairways were a big chunky big spots with nothing but dirt I did enjoyed my round.
Good value for your money.
We golf this course numerous times a year and it is always in good shape. This time the rough was a little longer.
Course is in great shape. With a little but of work you can find open times that allow you to play wide open. Definitely worth the money. Bar and staff too notch
I played here yesterday and I must say the course is in AWESOME condition. This was the 1st course I ever played when I started golfing years ago and I was anxious to return after not playing it for about 4 years. The greens were as good as you can get them, the fairways were rolling and I played 18 holes in 2hrs and 30 minutes. Glad to say I shot 13 straight pars to start my round before a stupid double bogey, bogey, birdie, par and 3 putt bogey. 74 coulda easily been under par but due to the rain the green were just a tad slower than expected on some putts. After the round I went in and got some food and tried the Blue Island beer (very delicious). Overall a great time and I will definitely be back.
