This course is in bad shape. Fairways are not well maintained With a lot of dead grass and your ball might end up in a pile of sticks if not hit on the fairway. This courses only saving grace is that the greens are in much better shape than they used to be and the staff is pretty friendly. Only way I would play here again is if they drop the price below 25 bucks like it used to be
THE GREENS WERE UN PLAYBALE
Someone should have told us that the greens were aerated with big holes. NOT COOL to not disclose
Sad state of Edgebrrok
Hadn’t golfed here in years due to pace of play and course conditions. Gave it a shot. Course still in poor condition and starter had a 6 some in front of us and said it was no big deal for a Saturday morning. Wouldn’t golf here again if it was $10. Staff was laughingly unhelpful. Won’t be playing here again and I recommend you save money and don’t play here either.
This course is in absolute terrible shape. I get that it’s short and that the fairway isn’t necessarily needed on most holes but there could still be grass and not dirt and the holes where a fairway is needed was non existent. $40 for this course is an absolute rip off. Hitting off range mats? Really. ? The tee boxes were weeds and dirt. Terrible. Shut this place down before it’s convicted of highway robbery for charging that price.
Starter put us behind a six some who played “best ball” but really didn’t. They were taking forever to play. Waited almost 15 minutes for every hole. Nice course, but they can’t have a six some play on course.
Not even the price can save this place
It gets old making the same joke every time your ball is unplayable... "Well, it's only $25 a round". But that's not why I'm leaving a negative review. I'm used to the undulating tee boxes and challenging fairways of cheap courses.
The bad review is because there is an employee at this course that outright lies about tee time availability. The employee is extremely confrontational and creates opportunities for conflict. Literally, every time (x3) I've booked a tee time, there's been a "problem". There's always some confusion added unnecessarily. Like: "ok, you were 3:30? Let me make sure that works..." What's the problem, I've booked so send me out.
The employee micro manages cart distribution by not allowing certain tee-times to even rent a cart "just in case someone else shows up and wants one (whether or not there are any others booked)". I've been asked to switch carts twice because I'm solo and there's a broken one for me to use and leave the one I've already touched for someone else (twosome). Final straw was the employee following me outside to confront me about touching too many buggies. I had to touch so many while looking for one that still had straps and a single cup holder not dangling off.
You couldn't pay me $25 to ever play this course again.
The greens were in decent shape but that was the only good thing about this course, besides the staff. The course was in horrible condition and pace of play was very slow.
Bit pricey for what was there.
This is a true links course, with tight holes and an interesting layout. It was fun, played fast, and was great for my skill level (intermediate) as it's mostly par 4s with a few par 3s. However the grounds were not super well maintained (park district funding) and not a lot of amenities. Also the pace of play dragged a bit. If it were mid week, and I had paid less, I definitely would repeat for the fun. But the drive and price weren't worth the lack of upkeep and amenities for a weekend round for me when I could invest the same time driving away from the city and get so much more.
Hitting off mats for 5 holes, course is incredibly narrow, fairways are in awful condition, and pace of play is bad. Good for first-time golfers but no one else.
Do no play
The course is poorly kept and the fairway intertwine so you are bound to have a ball hit by you. Also you’re hitting off mats for 5 holes. Just awful.
Almost every hole is a drivable par 4 or a long par 3 that you need to use a driver to reach. Using the longest tees means you hit off a mat. I don’t think I’ll ever be back. It might be the worse course I have ever played.
Course needs maintenance
Negatives: Lots of bald areas, fairway and rough are indistinguishable, and ground is so dry that it’s tough to put in the tee.
Positives: great for high handicap players to learn about consistency since it’s less likely for players to lose balls
Not bad far from great
A little over priced used to be able to play this course for about half the price not sure if it flu related.
