Course is in good shape, offers many options and challenges
17 holes in the city.
Short but a decent challenge. 18 holes in the city of Chicago. Love it!
Short but fun
I had a great time at Jackson Park. Course was in great shape on a perfect Saturday. Course feels a little short at only 5500 yds. Greens were smooth and soft. Carts made the round more expensive than it should be at 18$ per rider, booked through GolfNow but didn't get carts with the deal. Learn from my pain...25$became 43$. But overall I liked the setting and routing, lots of water and a few views of Lake Michigan.
February in Chicago
It was great to play in February. The course was in decent shape. The pace was very slow.
Solid for the money
Course is fairly easy. Staff is all very friendly.
It's the only 18 hole course in the city.. Staff is friendly, there was no cart attendant on Sunday and without a turn near the club house you can get hungry/thirsty. Its average at best but allows you to get a round in without traveling to the burbs. I would recommend to a friend with the above qualifications.
We are sorry to hear that certain aspects of your round did not meet your expectations. Our goal is for each guest to have a fun and outstanding experience throughout each round from start to finish. Feel free to contact our golf shop to speak with a member of the staff before your next round regarding our golf cart attendant schedule so that you are sure to have great service and food throughout your entire round. We look forward to seeing you at Jackson Park soon!
Solidly designed and cared for city course
For being a public course in the city, I'm not sure you could beat this course for the value. I think the course has really turned around since I played it last about 2 yrs ago. Everything is in good condition (greens, fairways, bunkers...etc) and the staff is friendly. Playing so close to people/houses/cars/etc makes me a little nervous given my errant beginner's shooting coupled with my ability to hit it long, but there were only a few holes where I felt like I was actually playing in the city. They even had a par 5 that was 560 yds (wow!). I am sure I'll be back a few times this year.
We are glad that you had a great time at Jackson Park and we thank you for your great review. We are looking forward to a beautiful season of golf and look forward to seeing out back on the course soon!!
For the money it's good. The pace is slow and the beverage cart could do a lot better if they were more diligent with their job. Clubhouse staff really nice though
Thank you for your feedback, we understand that pace is important to your round and are currently working on a pace of play program to speed things up on the course. We look forward to implementing this program so we can offer each guest an even better golfing experience.
The course was in good shape, especially the greens.
We played a good round of golf. Beautiful weather and the course was in surprisingly good shape.
Course conditions best in the area
I play this course fairly often because of the relatively low price and if you are willing to get up early, you can easily walk on and finish in 3 hours. The course conditions have steadily improved over this summer and the greens are better than country club and resort course greens. The staff is friendly and they seem to finally have a grounds crew. Fairways and greens are as good as any in the Chicagoland area. The bunkers have never had sand but a fine powdered dirt so it is what it is. The course gets very slow on weekend mornings after 8am and it needs but doesn't have a marshall to keep people on pace. Most people who are slow will let you play through if they are the ones holding you up.
Great Fun and convenient.
Overall it was a course with a warm staff that was willing to help to you enjoy your round of golf. I will rerun and recommend it to my friends!!!
Decent public course
Much improved year after year . Early in the season & repairs are already underway. Appreciated.
Great Course in the City
You have to be able to play with allot of noise. If you want silents when you put or tee off, you need to go to the burbs. The course's are surrounded by street traffic as well as local residents using the parks near by. The greens where in great shape and the staff was friendly and funny. We will be back. The cart fee was a little high at 18.00 per person. Even still we had a great day.
Convenient location but you pay for it
The course is conveniently located close to the city but it's $46 to ride for a course that should be max $35. It's short and not in great condition and there is no ranger, cart girl, or halfway house. If you want a drink or food you have to drive across a busy road to a gas station. Be sure one of you stays in the car or your cart or clubs will be taken.
The course is in great shape, the staff was very helpful and it was an all around enjoyable time.
Avoid. This place is a dump. I can't believe they call this place a golf course.
