For cry babies!
Gentlemen: did you expect Pebble Beach for these prices? You are correct, this is not a country club or PGA tour course (but then the last time the pros played here, they could barely break par). They don't pretend to be Pebble Beach. However, it is very narrow and actually a good test of your iron game. There are only 1 or 2 holes you can even use a driver but you better hit it straight! this is an interesting mix between "pitch and put" and a standard 18 hole golf course. It also doesn't take 5 or 6 hours to get around the course. Play is sometimes a little slow because there are very few scratch golfer's on this course but everybody is friendly and you will still finish in half the time of a standard course. You are correct that there are very few amenities on the course but then you also don't have to pay $5 for a hot dog. if you are golf snob, go elsewhere! If you like a sporty little course that will give you a challenge for a very reasonable price and an excellent value, then golf here.
This. Course is horrendous, it’s difficult to locate, shares a small parking lot with three other entities. The rough looked liked a unkept mess. The greens were not well maintained but the most disturbing aspects were the hole location markers were so hidden that most of the players couldn’t find the appropriate holes. The course intertwineds through the Evanston neighborhoods which requires you to cross multiple intersections with on coming traffic, unbelievable!!
I have played here many times, and I always love it. Every time I come back I feel like it gets better, and I love some of the changes they're making. The staff is always super friendly. Although this course is pretty short, it's extremely narrow, and is a great place to work on your iron shots. If you're looking for a fun track that you can finish in a couple of hours, then I suggest you make your way to Canal Shores!
Got my moneys worth
Great course for a the average golfer, no pressure, can get through a round quickly and very affordable. Despite the 45 minuet drive from my house I would definitely play here again.
Opportunity knocks for Canal Shores
Kudos to the Evanston-Wilmette community for trying to make this a better course. Still have a LONG way to go. Greens in great shape. Other parts of the course (tees and fairways/rough) not maintained well compared to municipal courses in the Chicago area.
Saw one person on staff (in the Pro Shop) the entire time we were there. No ranger to monitor pace of play or control people just walking onto the course and play without paying or checking in. Wouldn't care, except it really slows down (what should be 2.5 hours) a round of golf. Course had eight holes closed off - were not told when we booked the tee time a few days in advance, no sign or communication of it when we checked in and paid for a full round. Found out when we got to the first tee box.
Will be a long time if and when we play this cours again. Has potential- but we were really disappointed on how things went. Lots of better options for short courses in the area.
Canal shores is spectacular
This course is a beautiful family friendly course. It is a narrow little course through a residential neighborhood. This is the perfect place to work on your iron game and really dial them in. The greens are challenging which makes a this course harder then it looks. Overall would recommend it to others for sure.
