Some long par 4s from the white tees. Greens and tees are always in immaculate condition. I will play from the longest tees next time. I think it will be quite challenging.

Greens were excellent. The trees were not a problem unless you didn't put your shot where you intended.....which leads to the water and sand. On this course, controlling your drive is very important and is the deciding factor between a good round and a round where you are constantly scrambling. Even as badly as things went for me this day, I had a wonderful time. I just had a lot of retrospection as in: "Mother said there'd be days like this".

Played the East course. Pleasantly surprised as I had never played there. Very nice condition with interesting variation of holes. Scenic with undulation of fairways that you don't normally see in Northern Illinois. Greens are very nice and very tricky with lots of movement. Good value, worth a visit.

1st time seeing the course - so some of the shots are blind and not knowing where to go or which way the hole really shapes up was a bit of a challenge. par 5 on the back (15 if I remember is a monster, driver 3-wood, 5-iron & hit them all pretty well). course did seem to play long, but fairways were very lush. greens seemed slow, but they had lots of slope & break so they probably have to be or the balls would roll off the green very often. will be back - great "twi-light" deal for a fabulous course

This is a park district course. The tees, greens, fairways and sand traps are all very well maintained. They do put too much water on it though. There are 2 18 hole courses so, there is almost always a course that is wide open. If you are ordering food, allow plenty of time prior to your tee time as the service can be a little slow. Great menu with great prices! Beer sold in clubhouse but no beverage cart service.

We played the east course as there was a high school tournament on the west. This course is in excellent condition. The fairways are plush and the greens tricky. Pace of play was perfect. If you have not played this course, go for it.

A municipal course with excellent character and nice wide open layout. Definitely a challenge in both hole design and length. A beautiful facility with a rightfully proud and friendly staff. Longer par 3s, an insatiable 460+ yd par 4 and undulating greens that are tightly cut leading to frequent 3-4 putts if not careful.
