Very slow. Five hours for 17 holes and had to quit. Would have been nice to have a ranger make at least one drive by.

Terrible greens

The worst greens I have ever played on. Bumpy. Extremely slow. I realize there has been alot of rain and flooding that affected a number of holes, but no excuses for the bad shape of the greens. Generally, I like playing this course.

Take a pass on this one

I rarely leave reviews, but this course was pretty poor. 3rd tee time at 6:17 am on a Sunday and it was a 5 hour round. Greens were miserably slow and the rough was way too long. And the dandelions all over the course were pretty bad too. For 50 bucks there are plenty of better courses

Managed poorly

Managed poorly for our round on a Saturday. They had some tournament going on but told us that they are all really bad at golfing so we’re starting you on the back 9 to get going quicker. No problem except they started everyone from there so we had to wait at the tee box for two other groups to go off before us. I got there half an hour early to putt around and saw no one go off the front nine, why were they making us go the back nin? Plus the tournament players were a disgrace. They kept just driving rh golf cart around the course, not even playing golf. Rolled up just as we were teeing off to say “hi we’re just rolling by to watch,” and then sped off. Then another group drives their cart on the path in front of our tee box AS WE ARE HITTING so we had to literally stand back from the ball and wait...totally ruined the whole round. My buddies and I play here pretty regularly and all said we won’t be coming back again, we will go to tanna or mill for the same price.

Fun Track

I like the course layout with the changes in elevation.
Number 11 should be a par five by adding a trap in the fairway but overall a good, fun place to play

Disappointing

I hadn't played this course in a couple years. All I can say was it was a disappointment. The conditions of the course was no where near what it had been in the past. The rough was so deep you couldn't find your ball even when you knew where it landed. Parts of the fairways were not mowed as should be either. There were strands of grass as long as three or four inches in the fairway. The greens were also long. Saying the putting was slow is an understatement.

Great Course for the Money

Played on a windy October afternoon - twosome in under 3 hrs and 45 minuted. For a low cost Forest Preserve course, in was in great condition. Greens were in great shape although a bit slow. Nice hilly layout with lots of elevation change. Highly recommend for all levels.

Late summer round at HC

Conditions were decent, but there was fertilizer on the greens and the maintenance folks were hand watering just ahead of us so some of the greens were squishy.
