nice course but waterdamaged fairways

played here a few months ago and the course was in great shape....however june rains put a lot of the holes underwater..they havent recovered..

not told about this when making t time..

additionally when making t time we we told and were under the opinion we were getting the 4 for 120$special...when we arrived we were told we needed a "hard copy" coupon to get special..told fee was $43 each..we eventually were given the $36 senior rate..

not a big deal money wise but kind of put a damper on the day....

weve been playing here for over 40 years...wont play it again this year..maybe next year

Damaged fairways

Played here many times and have never come across such dire conditions. Looked like there were large areas of flooding that has killed the turf. Many, many areas were "Under Repair."

Stay away for a couple months until problem has been remedied.

Fun in the Sun

The golf course is in great shape and you should head out to Cary Country Club when you can. It is very enjoyable and the greens are in excellent shape. The entire course was in excellent shape.

Don't Let the Drive In Fool You...

While driving in, you're a bit skeptical as to where you may have just booked... as you weave in and out of an older neighborhood and alongside a chain-linked fence - but I assure you, the views once you're out on the course make up for all of it.

The elevation changes are unlike most courses you'll play in Illinois, which makes for a an entirely new experience to most natives around the state.

Overall, I loved the course! It was pretty simplistic and straight forward, so all golfers should feel very invited.

The staff in the Pro Shop and in the Grill were phenomenal. Unfortunately, in terms of food offerings, it was very limited.

I will definitely be back to play again... looking forward to doing so in the fall when all the leaves begin changing colors!

Nice place to play

I was very pleased with this golf course, it was a nice and pleasant place to play. I will definitely play there again. The only negative is that it was a little shaggy.

Rewards issue

The course is okay.

I booked this tee time and used my reward Promo Code 9BZvjV5K2. How come the total discount is only $2.49 and not $10 as stated in my reward points? I'm confused, how can I get my $10 reward?

Oh Boy

The staff was nice and we took a few pictures on top of a couple scenic bluffs. That’s about it. Poorly maintained, annoying blinds shots, bad greens. The greens are ridiculous. Just about every put was unduly undulating and with “cement “for the surface of all the greens a three footer would run 5 feet past if not more. Our round was not enjoyable. We almost walked off. The course is bad.

late February golf in Chicageland area

60 degree day end of Feb. no snow on ground . Perfect golf weather . Never played CCC , got a great price on golfnow and tried it out . Course employees were very friendly and accommodating . Course was in great shape considering time of year . Carts were allowed out , which was great , course has many elevated tees and greens . Will definitely go there again , when its warm and green . Will be a scenic course when spring arrives . Thought it was great in Feb , I know it will be that much better in real golf weather
