Course in bad condition

Course is in bad shape. Fairways had lots of Dry spots and ground extremity hard. Can’t swing and get a good shot cause there’s hardly any grass underneath the ball.
Too bad, I liked this course but it seems they haven’t done any maintenance Won’t go back at least this year.

Pretty Good

Tee boxes and green areas are well kept. Fairways need some love but for the price and a public course, can't complain too much.

decent

The course was in decent condition considering how dry it has been. Round cost $40 with cart, which is kind of insane for what you are getting.

Idiotic Tee Time-Booking service and unobliging Golf Shop.

Joanna, a Tee Time assistant, had provided me with false confidence when she insisted on taking care of me. We had a scheduling conflict with two separate Tee times and the communication between the booking service and the golf course was horrendous. She had promised a full refund on the initial time if I had committed to prepay another tee time. However, the golf course had a policy in place that did not allow this type of maneuvering and was unwilling to help which gives color to exactly how dysfunctional both of these businesses are. DO NOT schedule Tee Times with any third party scheduling service and if you are looking for a low-quality, cheap golf course in the Chicagoland area, even Billy Caldwell may be well below your standards.
