lots of elevation, scenery change, great course

Excellent course, well maintained, lots of elevation changes, hills abound. We were first twosome off and zipped through in 2 hours and 30 mins. Groups behind us were keeping pretty good pace. So, pace of play was moving good for us and 2-3 groups behind us.

Course has some wide open holes (1st hole to start) and then some very tight, trees lining both sides of the hole and ranging from 330-400 yards. Some room for drivers but, better off with 3-wood and or hybrid off tees to position for approach shots for these tree-lined holes. Two of the par 4's reached 450 yards...but were wide fairways, but, still beast of holes and in the dewey morning into the wind they were challenging holes. We definitely want to play this course again. A very fun, scenic, well-maintained, challenging course!

Slow Play

I love the layout of this course. Course conditions were average compared to other courses I play. Fairways were a little thin. Greens very soft and true. Pace of play however was terrible. Teed off about 11:15 ,2 slow groups in front of us, took 4 hours 45 minutes to play. Course was open in front of them. No marshals. Made an otherwise good day into frustration..

Fun and scenic

Was a fun course to play.
Had some nice challenges and some scenic holes.
Course was in great shape greens and fairways well maintained.
Tee boxes a little rough but not bad.

The greens are on the small side but adds a good challenge.

Overall it is a play again course.

Very slow

The course overall is very challenging for the average player. I am an 8 handicap and I played it from 6000 yards. Took almost 5 hours as I think for the average player there are many demanding and blind shots on this course. Condition was pretty good. Probably won’t return for quite some time mainly because I waited on every shot and it took too long.

Balanced Course

I was impressed with this course. Easily accessible off I-55, friendly staff. Pretty good range. Course has a good balance of open and tight holes. I love the challenge that the fairway pinching trees pose on several holes. Most of the course was in great shape, however some of the greens tell the story of the careless golfers that play here. Many un-repaired ball marks and divots from temper tantrums. We had what appeared to be a group of 8 ahead of us that had a big impact on the pace of play. The group behind us said their cart was hit by balls fired by the group behind them a few times now on the front 9 alone.

great time

The course was in great shape the staff was overly friendly more than helpful. There’s nothing they can do about the cold that’s for sure but overall it was great. Granted there were a ton of leaves but this time a year you’re going to find that on every golf course

Course was great, amenities not so much.

The course was in great shape after the amount of rain we received. Greens rolled true and bunkers were as good as they could be. Course is tight and rewards well placed tee shots. The only reason I gave this course 3 stars is the fact that they had only snacks at the turn. We teed off at 12:45 and made the turn at 3:15 at which point we were told the restaurant/bar was closed for the day. In addition, the cart girl was also sent home. It wasn’t the busiest day but I have never played a course where I couldn’t get at least a hotdog at the turn on a Saturday afternoon. I would recommend this course for the golf but make sure to eat before or bring your own food and beer.

Excellent public course

One of the better courses in the area. It’s a real test for ball placement. Fairways and greens in great shape.

Golf course of dreams

This course is similar to the baseball field in the movie, Field of Dreams. You drive up to it unassumingly, and walk into the simple, modest, yet somewhat charming looking clubhouse and you are greeted with a warm welcome. The carts are fairly new, if not new. When you pull up to the starter’s hut your eyes are just drawn to the fairways and tee boxes that are the lushest most vibrant hues of green that you could imagine! The greens are in just as great of conditions! While the greens could be a bit more undulating and challenging, they are not easy by any stretch either. Brian Smith the Superintendent there is a genius! His crew is ever present and the results show their dedication. This course is a now forever in my 2 week rotation! Well worth the price!

You won't think it's a public course

The course is pretty incredible. It has the feel of a private course. The only issues are the geese . They do not want to move.

Heritage Bluffs on a Sunday Afternoon

Heritage Bluffs is one of the best public courses in the Chicago Area. The course has great design character and the course is well maintained. The course has wonderful diversity and requires thoughtful shot placement. Green fees are reasonable and the course offers incentive rates for golfers who have scheduling flexibility for non-peak times. Their on site restaurant offers a great menu providing much more than standard golf course fare.
