Poor weather

Gotta love this place

Started raining hard. They gave me a raincheck no questions asked. If you like inexpensive, fun, funky old school courses this is a good one. After your round check out the $4 beers in the VFW bar above the pro shop.

I have played there before and the course is challenging. Great place to work on your long irons.

Good starter course

This course is well suited for someone just starting to take up the game. Took my grandson out for his4first round. Course isn't intimidating and wasn't
too crowded so he he didn't feel pushed

Decent course, bit needs a little work

Decent short course (all par 3s & 4s). Need some work on the greens (several with bald spots) and fairways (balls spots, weed grass, etc). Has some interesting holes over the canal, but need to add sand traps around greens. With just a little work this could be a gem of a little course. Nice views of the Bah'ai temple from the course.

The worst course I have ever seen!

They should have paid me to play there. The course was in the worst condition I have ever seen! Everyone was walking and the pace was horrible! Just getting around and finding the next hole was horrible! No signs directing to the next hole. Worst course I have ever seen in my life!!!!! Stay away!! Cheap but not worth 1 dollar!

Fun and Well worth the $$$$

Found a great deal on line for this course. Took my wife (20 hcp) my 10 year old grand daughter and myself. Upgraded to gas carts at the course and had a great day.
The people that run this course are by far the nicest people I have ever encountered at a park district golf course. Everyone was helpful and contributed to a surprisingly enjoyable summer day for us.
Thank you and we will be back.

Sporty Par Three Plus

Fun and tricky 18 hole par three course. Great views. Hole layouts provide good challenge with tight approaches and crossing the canal. Greens need maintenance but otherwise a fun round.
