This course is very straight forward, literally. There is one par five, and it is the only hole that isn’t completely straight. The course conditions are great, however pace is slow (2 hours for a single). Good place to go if you want to practice hitting the ball straight, haven’t played much, or are a beginner. Best hole is either 7 or 8 (both par 3s).
Good summer practice course
Played with a friend for an evening round. Course was in good condition. Greens are slow but roll straight to the hole. Good value for the money.
Very ok course and why is this advertised as an 18 hole course?
Paid for 18 holes through golf now but only permitted to play 9. Once I arrived, all bag carts were gone and then had to pay $12 for a golf cart.
The person cutting grass was so ignorant and rude to us paying golfers.. he said the course was closed and was in the line of my guest who had to move her ball as a direct result of the ignorance therefore making a nice day just kinda less pleasant- he didn’t care how much we paid or to who as he informed his boss, who is ???? I’ll think twice before playing Columbus park again
Greens keep it playable
Played for the first time yesterday. Im a scratch golfer who just moved to the area and was looking to get out of the apartment for a bit. I found this little 9 hole course outside of the city and walked 9. Tee boxes and fairways looked burned up from the start but I was shocked when I got on the green, they were surprisingly smooth, receptive, and were kept in great shape considering. I believe they were bent greens but I didn’t pay too much attention to it. Staff was super friendly and helpful. No practice putting green or driving range but have a small chipping area to warm up. I had the distance to drive maybe 3-4 holes but the greens are fairly small so it makes you be very accurate. Overall I had a good experience and would play again. Walked 9 in about an hour and 15 minutes.
Fairways are not kept up with big dirt spots all across nearly every fairway. Tee boxes are rock solid and beat up.
Great for practice
This course is very forgiving. Wide open fairway to help make balls playable. It’s by no means comparable to a country club but definitely a great course to practice.
The Casper golf is working on it but Columbus Park golf is always struggling with drainage problems. That seemed to cause a fungus(? problem with the turf. Large areas of the fairways
are grassless. The sand traps are being dug out and refilled with fine sand, the greens were in good shape but tee boxes were rough. On a cool day we were almost alone on the course at 11:30.
its empty at least
Pretty ugly course, basically an empty field with a few greens spread throughout. However, I played midday on a Wednesday and didn't run into anyone. Played 9 holes in about an hour and fifteen. I may go again only because of that...
Practice course with some potential
This is a very cheap course located inside Chicago's Austin neighborhood. It probably could use some updating, but it's ok as it is (a flat easy practice course). I really liked the dogleg par 5 (hole 4 I think) and the second hole (par 3). Unfortunately the course was pretty chewed up, wet, and full of dandelions causing me to lose balls I normally wouldn't. The greens were the nicest part of the course. Almost all of them were in decent shape. If the course were drier, I could see myself coming back here. Also it is important to point out the course is very flat and the fairways are wide. There are almost no trees on the course.
Just a regular course, nothing special at all. Very wide open. Good course for practicing.
