Nice little 9 hole course
Overall a nice 9 hole course that was in good shape. The only reason I rated this a 3 and not a 4 has to do with the busy area it is in. It sits within a larger park so there are walking trails that surround the course. I typically prefer a more secluded course. But that being said I would definitely play it again. It's a nice little course in the city for sure.
First round of the year here
This is my go to place. between home and work.
Great facility with green and chipping practice area. Staff is always friendly.
Despite being in the city, this is one of the best place to go to. Greens are always in great shape. Fairways can be pretty wet at times but the course offers a decent variety of challenges.
The only piece missing would be very long holes but still, 1, 4,5 and 9 requires solid driving skills.
Great 9 hole course. Great place to learn. Friendly staff. Inside bathrooms need to be redone.
Fine course for cheap
Don't waste your money on a cart, short 9 hole that is easy to carry or push. Got way backed up behind a junior high league on a Tuesday summer night. Waited 3-10 min at each hole.
Well worth the money
The course is pretty sporty. Not long but with the large bunkers and multi level greens makes for a nice challenge.
You can play 9 holes in less then two hours.
Staff is great especially the starter.
Challenging short course
Course is challenging just not that long. Great design and staff. New app and carts are great.
Great 9 hole course
Great course! Staff was excellent. If you come with a great attitude, you get a reflection right back at you!
Solid, cheap, city course
Course is well maintained especially compared to other park district courses. I would recommend walking as it keeps it cheap and the course is pretty short. Great place for a quick 9.
Solid design, great value!
A really fun city course at a great price. Nice doglegs, solid greens with fun hole placement. Rough was brutal but given the rain we had the last few weeks, I’ll cut some slack. Will be back.
Would be a decent deal if you walk. Made the mistake of adding a cart which doubled the price for 2 golfing. Amenities were poor. Pace of play was very slow. Course was extremely forgiving, no water traps but plenty of sand. With all of the great courses available in the Chicago area will not be going back here.
Beautiful day of golf
Second time playing course. First time was very wet but since we had no rain the course was good. After checking in the staff told us that the greens were aerated. We asked for any consideration... a pull cart anything. He was steadfast no. The greens were unputtable. At least the weather was finally warm to golf
