Disappointed

When we arrived they charged a golf fee for the cart which we never paid last year. They over book and pace of play was extremely slow they do not allow enough time between tee times. Will not be going back very disappointed almost left after the first couple holes. On the plus side a nice kept up course

Difficulty Extremely Easy

Hometown Course

Flagg Creek has always held a place in my golf memories... From junior leagues, to fun on the range, to hole-in-one on #4, to my first parred 9. The course is well maintained and offers some scenery that they took away from us when Timber Trails was razed. The course tests all skill levels with some difficult hole layouts but allows the average player to score well playing a simple game. The course does get fairly backed up with some "golfers in training" and you're forced to layup on some drivable par 4s just to keep pace of play. That said you may be forced to hit some irons off the tee, but at the same time it allows you to test all the clubs in your bag which is rare for a 9-hole course. Overall it's a great experience and I'd recommend it to any student of the game.

Wonderful time

I played a quick round by myself and for going out alone I had a great experience. The course was very well maintained even after a night of heavy rain. Staff was very friendly, I will definitely be returning in the near future!

Great 9 hole in the SW suburbs with Practice Range

Today was wide open and finished +2 in one hour 18 minutes off the blue tees.

Course is in impossibly good shape for a municipal course: they do a great job considering lots of play there.

Staff was friendly. Electric cart.

Challenging for a municipal.
Greens good. Layout good.

Decent

A great practice area with mats only on weekdays.

Friendly staff but sometimes painfully slow pace: played as a single in 1 hour 3 minutes after an outing.

But usually, a long, slow 2.5+ hours with waits on every tee—that’s just nine holes.

Very well maintained for the amount of rounds played here. One of the top 3 nine hole courses in the area.

Lots of horrible duffers though..

It is what it is

Short park district 9-hole course. Nothing extremely challenging about the course. Good opportunity to sneak out and play 9 with the bride or the kids.

Staff extremely friendly. Nice bar and patio area for post golf relaxation.
