Open Style Links in Chicago

Overall this is a beautiful course. It's designed as an open style links course you would see off an ocean. Obviously the big omit is you won't get links style weather conditions you would see in the British Isles, or off the ocean or a great lake. It's close to Lake Michigan, so you'll get a breeze and some high winds with a storm nearby, but not similar to what you see on TV when it's off an ocean. But what you do get is the open layout with fescue, thick playable rough, rolling hills, and plenty of bunkers. It's fun due to how you are really thinking of where you want to land your ball since if you hit it too far by accident, right into a bunker, or if you are off a bit to the right or left is the fescue. It adds the mental thinking to how you want to approach your shots, especially how some greens are very large leaving you with a 40+ foot putt. I say go for putting over a bunker shot, but those putts aren't easy at all. Also the greens were in great shape, and the breaks were subtle and made you think.

My only issue, which is personal, is my driver was horrible with me topping the ball again. I resorted to my 4 iron or fairway wood, which at least got into the air, but if you are struggling with distance, it will hurt you on some holes. It's challenging course, but designed in a good way.

Links Style Course

Great conditioning all around the course, greens were perfect and quick. Pace of play was excellent 4hrs and 15 mins. My playing partner couldn't believe we were in Chicago, thought it was more like South Carolina.

Late November golf at harborside.

For late November course was in great shape, a little over priced at $75 after Chicago tax but a very nice course all said.
Will definitely play It next year..

Beautiful golf course

Traveled from Cincinnati for business had a day before I left the Windy City decided to play a solo round. Weather was cooling down and winds were gusting. The course was challenging but fair and luckily I did not find the treacherous rough once. Fairways are in excellent shape and greens receiving and also in great shape. Absolutely loved this golf course and wished it was closer to home. I had a great time the staff could not have been more welcoming and I will be returning hopefully sooner rather than later.

Port Course

Overall in great shape. Great links layout of that is what you’re looking for. Very penal if you miss the fairway even by a few yards. If your a scratch or better you’ll enjoy the course otherwise bring plenty of balls.
