A lot of fun

This course is challenging, and also very fun to play. There’s a few holes that are interesting and that kind of thing peaks my interest. The new management seems very helpful and friendly and the pro shop manager is super nice and super helpful as well! I would recommend giving this course a try. You’ll love it.

Green issues

Great course, great layout but the greens are getting away from health. Just about every green had issues. Dead spots, lumpy and just falling apart. Great staff, food, service and price. Please, please get the greens back!

Cow pasture with tee boxes and greens

The course pro is very knowledgeable and personable. They brought in a new general manager last year and the course condition has gotten worse, which in itself is hard to believe.. The course condition really brings down the neighborhood as well. This could be a really great course as well as an asset to the neighborhood. Time for a change. Until that happens, we will be spending our golf time and money elsewhere.

Disappointing experience

Slow pace of play. 5 hour round with a 9:30am star time. Hard to find good grass to hit on in the fairways. Greens had dead patches. Tee boxes were unkept with broken tees and some were rock hard for placing your tee. All sand traps had only one rake.

terrible

Not recommended. Course wasn’t opened until after tee time . Staff member was impeccably rude and inconsiderate of customer service or any golf course etiquette. 5 some was started in front of us half way through round. Not worth your time or money.

Not worth it

Overall course was poorly kept and no consistency of the fairway nor the greens. Hitting off the fairway was similar or worse than hitting out of the rough. Greens were either nice or looked like they were under maintenance.

Not what it used to be

I used to play this course when I was in college, because the price was not bad on a limited budget. From what I remember the condition has deteriorated over the last few years. My greeting in the Pro Shop worker felt like I was a burden and bothering him. There were a dead spots on a few greens, with the rain heavy weather this year, it should be the opposite. The rough was weeds and un-mowed, and the fairways were meh at best. The cart I had kept backfiring, so that was fun. The bunkers were probably some of the nicest I have had to play out of recently. It looks like a lot of fresh sand was recently brought it. That is about the only positive I have to say. I probably will not be back, which is unfortunate to say. I used to really enjoy this place.

The course was very rough and not in good shape as usual only because of the bad weather we have had for a long time!

Cart path only, Really!

We have played Fox Creek a few times but never this early in the season.

We were told that the course was “ cart path only” in my opinion that was not enough there were some areas of the course that were not safe to walk on either.

On several Fairways including the 18th were not fit to play on. The course had not been mowed recently and there were many areas that had standing water.

I like Fox Creek, but today was one of those days when I wish I hadn’t bothered, I hit very straight, but was still losing balls on the “ fairways”

We will go back, but not at this time of year.

Happy that I live in Florida not Illinois

Lifetime playing this course

Please just fill up the 9th and 18th holes with dirt please immediately. Seriously what's the point I'd rather just hit off of dirt and my own T in the center of the fairway temporarily instead of literally sinking when I walk because hacks did the civil engineering and people's grey water is draining into the tiny fairway valley and smells like sewer and.is UNPLAYABLE. Just fill it up with dirt pitch it away from the green overtime and put some grass seed on it.
