No carts after 530pm when your special starts at 5pm?

Why would you deny a cart to a single at 6pm, to take advantage of your "happy hour special", and yet allow a 4-some to make the turn with carts while I am sitting here writing this? Just be realistic and either apply common sense or move your 5pm special up an hour to justify your denial of carts due to "it getting darker earlier now". (Staff quote) Thank you.

Excellent Staff

First time playing. In Chicago for business and this course was close to where we were staying. What a find! Thoroughly enjoyed playing. Staff was very friendly, course was in excellent condition although hole number 4 was closed for bunker repairs so we were detoured to executive course for replacement hole (would have rather played hole #4 but I understand). Well managed with a friendly starter on hole #1 who offered course tips. Clubhouse accommodated our request to move up our scheduled tee time after our group arrived early. Nice quite Club Car electric carts with GPS (USB ports would have been nice). Course was very well maintained and in great shape. Greens ran true and pin placements were challenging. Rain ended our round after 13 holes but we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I will make it a point to play this course again when I am in the area. One of the nicest public courses I have played in some time. Highly recommend!

Beautiful layout and in Great shape for time of year

Played on a cool blustery day but thoroughly enjoyed the course although I am still trying to figure out hole # 10 . I will have to play it again to see what I may have missed as far as the thought process behind the design . All in all the course is well maintained and very scenic .Will definitely play it again !

In my opinion, 10 is a true risk/reward style hole. Choose to take on the bunkers and should you carry them, you have a short iron or wedge into the green. Choose to lay-up short of them with a hybrid or iron off the tee and your second shot is with a long iron into the green. Personally, I think the best play is something in the 210-225 yardage range off the tee. Carries the bunkers but is short enough to stay out of the trees to the right.

Really Kept Up Well

Great course for $30. All of the traps were well maintained. All the fairways were nice. The greens were very nice also. It is a great course. If you play badly here you can't blame this course. It has to be you. All good and will definitely go back next year when the price foes back down to $30. Back nine greens were aerated but done in such a way as to not affect putting. A real value.

Enjoyable

Enjoyed playing this course again.
Haven't played in a few years because of price.
Found a deal on a Sunday and was pleasantly surprised.
Trees and bushes have been thinned back and course seems more wide open and playable.

Great course

A case of supply and demand. This course is in such great shape, and along with an excellent layout, gets a lot of play. As a result, the prices are sometimes fairly high, but if one pays attention to golfnow, one can on occasion get a decent deal. I got a great one monday and enjoyed the course thoroughly, as I always do. The course has a real diversity of holes, making it most interesting.

Great course

Loved this course. A dealt fun course to play. Lots of elevation changes, and dog legs make it interesting. Course is generally in great shape. Greens are quick, and you rarely have a level putt. In some cases, the hole placement was unfair, side hill cup placement really tough for avg players. Would definitely play again though.

Randall Oaks

Randall Oaks is great little course tucked away in the far NW Suburbs. Definitely worth the drive as they have everything you could want. From 18 challenging & picturesque holes to a great practice area and range. There's even a kids course attached for the wee little ones to get started on the game. The clubhouse, bar and restaurant are very nice and sitting on the deck overlooking #18 is a fine way to finish the day. There are several really fun holes with blind shots. The short par 4's are my favorite ones and require a smart strategy and target accuracy.

Nice track

Played for second time and really like the course. Played white tees both times but will step up to blues shortly. Course in great condition and challenging, tough but fair greens. Reasonable albeit not inexpensive price but competitive. Played Sunday both times and it would help if they kept up pace as my group is not fast by any means but we have done a fair amount of waiting both times. Really like clubhouse bar, very friendly and fast service. Overall a good experience!
