The golf was in nice condition with smooth greens that were rolling 9-9.5. A short but challenging layout that penalized shots that were on the wrong side of the fairway or too long. I would play it again.

Much like many of the courses in the North Shore the design demands accuracy. The fairways are typically narrow. Holes are situated next to each other. An errant shot can easily result in either another fairway, green or tee box. Our foursome played it at 5,900 yards. Although typically that distance is not long it is definitely a benefit to have solid carry. The conditions promoted little fairway roll. Course layout is challenging especially for first timers. Pace of play is enforced with rangers, but there were a few holes where we waited a couple minutes. I would be willing to play there again. The only con is that there is no driving range.

Course is an average couse that presents a challenge for teenagers and seniors. Par 4s and 5s are short. Very good condition but pace of play is very slow. If you are looking to walk and a 5hr round, good for you.

I approached the starter stand 15 minutes before my tee time. The man asked for my name, which i provided, and he quickly glanced at his tee sheet, pointed his finger in my face and said loudly, raising his hands, "YOU ARE ON THE TEE." I told the man that my tee time was scheduled for 12:40 PM, and that I had 15 minutes to be on the tee, and that I would be ready at that time. I walked away as he mumbled beneath his breath. I bought some food from the clubhouse and came back to find that the starter had changed shifts with someone new, and had shared the false information with the new starter about my group. I got the 3rd degree from the new starter, regarding my tee time. He sternly talked to me about etiquette and timeliness without allowing me to say a word. I asked him to please listen, and he finally let up. We reviewed his tee sheet together and noticed that the group before ours also was under the name "Chris", and that was the group that had been late.

The starter did not apologize for his mistake. Rather, he said that I had 5 minutes to be on the tee (5 feet away) and turned inward, away from the window, his back to me.

This experience alone is enough to say I will not go back. I interacted with two starters in ten minutes who were completely unprofessional. The staff was condesending, demanding, and unapologetic. It was one of the worst encounters I have had with someone in a service role.

This course is just beautiful. Each hole is a pleasure to play.

The difficulty of this course comes from the large amount of sand traps. If you are long ball hitter the traps never really come into play off the drive, just on your approach shot. The conditions on this course are great and if you can find a deal I HIGHLY recommend playing this course.

The downside of this course is the pace of play. We played on a Friday afternoon and it took us over 5 hours.

We read about the big re-design and just had to check it out for ourselves. It did not disappoint. Working with a land locked property Mr. Jacobson made it come alive again. Small changes to layout coupled with much needed work to the green complexes, fairway bunkering, and water management all make the new site pop.

Always great to see maintenance workers and supervisors scurrying around sprucing things up, and the general shape of things here was very pleasing.

Atmosphere around the clubhouse and on the front patio made this public course feel almost like a private club.

Honestly I had high expectations with this course having one of the top ratings in the Chicagoland area. The course was well kept, and yeah the staff and amenities were fine.

But, the most important thing is that the course is small. The holes are short. I believe there were 5 par 4's in a row on the back 9, all about 380 yards. Boring. Only 2 par 5's. I would not recommend this course to anyone who enjoys challenging or fun course layouts.

Played my first round here yesterday after reading positive reviews of the renovation a couple years ago. Never had ever considered playin here previously. Really looks more like a standard country club layout/vibe/clubhouse than typical north shore muni. Fairways & greens in great shape with consistent rough. I played as a single and they were very accommodating, linked up with a good group of older regulars. Played quick round because It started raining so had course to myself. Decent challenge with mix of holes but quite a few short ones where 5 wood off the tee Is sufficient. Definitely will be back. Staff was great.

The course has a club feel, but open to the public. Its a short drive from the city too.

The course conditions are great and its well maintained. We finished our round in just over 4 hours so its average, but we found ourselves waiting on several occasions for a bit.

If you have a walking bag, bring it! I'm new to the area learning which courses even allow walking. As I drove around, I noticed I was one of only a few in a cart. I wish I'd have known.

Very tight course and well guarded. I'll be back after some lessons and practice.

The front nine holes 3,4,5 will challenge just about any golfer to make par on these long par 4s. The par 3s 9 & 10 also can be challenging. Everyone is treated to a couple of scoring chances to finish your round on 17 & 18.
