Rating 72.8

Klein Creek Golf Club sprawls across acres of rolling prairieland in the western suburbs of Chicago. Trees frame the layout's gentle doglegs and tall prairie grasses border the fairways. It is a golf course that offers both beautiful scenery and a challenging round. Several lakes also dot the landscape, coming into play on almost every hole. The abundant water hazards are often coupled with spacious, intricately designed bunkers that are also usually paired with wood retaining walls. Contoured mounding frames the fairways and greens as well. Klein Creek Golf Club's layout is not easy by any means but it's fair, offering room for error on even the tougher holes with wide fairways and generous landing areas. There are a variety of approach options for the greens as well, providing great risk-reward opportunities.

Klein Creek Golf Course review

1. Sand traps full of water or weeds.
2. There is an abundance of geese and their poop.
3. Tee boxes unlevel.
4. They don't have a practice/warm-up range.
5. They want to consider themselves to be an elite course and the greens fee reflects that but the poor course conditions show otherwise.

Good find

Pretty good course and good value. Greens looked great for early season. Unfortunately the sand traps were underwater. Besides that it is a good time.

Klein Creek early April round

Course was wet and cart path only due to Spring rains. However, the greens were in surprisingly good shape for early April. The layout is challenging regardless of what time of year you play. Only downside remains the Sand traps and some of the cart paths.

The course is a great layout, unfortunately it needs some TLC in some areas.
The greens are wonderful and roll great.

Average at best

Course was sub par at best. Bunkers had ponds in them. Fairway had grass clippings. Rough was very rough. Made the turn after 9, and had 3 three somes ahead plus a single. Don’t know how it gets that backed up after the turn. Pace of play is very slow. About 4 1/2 hour rate for 18. Take the 18 if you can get a good deal, otherwise stay away if able

Nice, challenging track

Staff was awesome!! Greens rolled true and the rough was thick!! A fair course that has several sets of tees.....wide enough fairways but plenty of water...only issue was bunker conditions....there are many and I'm sure not easy to maintain but really my only complaint,
However I.def recommend!!!!

Like all the other reviews

Fairways and greens were in good shape. Like all the other reviews said, need some sand in the sand traps. We played free drop out of the sand if you unfortunate enough to land in one. The course needs some serious attention. Will not play it again no matter how much of a deal they offer.

Not worth the $$$

I had not played this course in 12 years and it unfortunately is no longer the same high quality course. The sand traps are a joke !! The layout is tight and fair with some easy holes and some difficult holes. For the same price you can play a lot of much better courses is much better condition !

WORTH THE MONEY

Nice layout, somewhat challenging if you play black or blue tee. everything is great, except for the bunker, which has no sands and no maintainence.
Overall I highly recommend this course if you want to pay a fair price for a better course.

What a great course!

Arguably one of the best public course to play in Illinois for the challenging-fun course itself and the cudtomer-friendly price.

Needs work

The course was OK shape except for sand traps. The sand trip had no sand and only dirt. Thankful we we played on a sunny day but if it was raining you’d be playing in the mud hole out of the Sandtrap’s. Pace of play was three hours and 50minutes for A twosome. The group in front of us never let us through. Only for a cheap price but I play this course again.
