First Time Playing

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.

City Golfing

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.

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.

Not bad

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

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.
