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.
