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.

The bunkers need to be taped off and condemned.

No sand in them, But lots of rocks. Not interested in chipping my clubs up.

Yes, we have not had rain in about 3 weeks but it was like green painted concrete out there.

Staff was very friendly did a nice job.

Layout is fine a little narrow but workable. would be fine if the gravel pits for bunkers did not come into play all over.

overall would not play again until word came out of bunkers being redone.

Could be a very nice course with some effort.

KLEIN CREEEK DEMANDS ACCURACY. WATER & O.B. COMES INTO PLAY ON MOST HOLES. AT 6900 YARDS YOU FIND YOURSELF USING THOSE LONGER CLUBS AND THE GREENS WERE NOT THAT RECEPTIVE, RESULTING IN A CHIP FROM THE ROUGH OR AN UNFORTUNATE BUNKER THAT HAS NOT BEEN RAKED. THE GREENS WERE VERY FAST. NOT A BAD $30 -$40 COURSE

I recently played at Klein Creek on a 75 degree Thursday morning (10am) in August with a group of friends. Upon arrival we were informed that there was an outing teeing off after us, this was not an issue since they were after us. I've played the course before so I was well aware of all the water hazards and sand traps on the course. One of my playing partners ended up in one of the traps on the first hole, upon entering the trap he noticed it felt more like concrete than sand. We hoped this was an issue with this particular trap but it stayed constant throughout the round. Being a former caddie I always rake my traps but on this particular day it was not needed since the were as hard as asphalt. The next issue we ran into was the refreshment cart or the lack there of a refreshment cart. At the turn we hoped to grab a bite to eat and some drinks at the outdoor patio/bar, to our surprise it was closed! When we asked the staff they said we would need to go into the restaurant to order food. One of us ran inside to order food and drinks and waited almost 5 minutes in the bar before he was attended to. I can only imagine how long it would have taken to get a sandwich! In order to keep our place of play my playing partner only grabbed a few drinks. You would think with an outing happening on a 75 degree day that it would be a good idea to have someone stationed at the outside patio/bar. After finishing the 13 hole we FINALLY found a refreshment cart, at this point we still had our drinks from the turn. The only positives for the day were the pace of play and consistency of the greens. I will most definitely not be playing this course again no matter the price.

The course format (from the whites) was fun to play. The fairways drained and ran well. The biggest pro were that the greens; challenging and rolled moderately fast and true.

The main downsides of the course, which is a big shame, were the bunkers. Although they were challenging placed, the sand was cement. The mgmt should cover most of them and call it a day. Also (minor cons) no water in ball washer on the course as well as "on" the golf cart...

This is still one of the best places to play in the area, the layout of this track will always stand the test of time, despite some poor course conditions like sand in most bunkers, Greens Have some wear and tear but still roll true w good speed, definitely one of the most enjoyable courses around. Pro shop always aims to please, players track from the tips.

Great facilities and staff, but the greens were really best up with unrepaired ball marks and burnout spots.

Also, the rangers did not keep slower groups moving fast enough and there were delays.

Course was in good shape. The fairways had a lot of divots and chunks of grass everywhere. The carts only had one sand jug which was empty by the third hole. The cart barn should make sure every cart gets a full jug of sand before a cart goes out for a round. The sand bunkers were awful, it was like hitting off of concrete at times. For it being a perfect day in July, no rain, no wind, I would have expected slightly better course conditions. Other than that, it was a fun round. The course has it challenges but is also forgiving at times. I would come back.

Avoid! KC has quite a few bunkers but has very clearly given up on any maintenance of them. Not enough sand, no grooming, eroded to the point of visible drainage pipes, etc. greens were ok but tee boxes hacked up.

Very much a course getting away (for now) charging $60-70+ as that is what the market seems to support. I don't remember KC being in nearly this bad of shape last year.

I won't be back - too many other much better options at this price point.

I brought my 2 bro in laws here because I know this course doesn't get a lot of play and as new golfers, they wouldn't feel the pressure from golfers behind us. It won't be long before KC is busy again. The conditions were consistently nice and it's a great value in the Wheaton area. The only negative is the bunker conditions. They all need some attention but if you rake and place, it's fine. The outdoor bar has so much potential yet it remains empty. This is a great place to go with new golfers and/or if you need a tee time last minute. It's a challenging course and I'll be back again.
