Windy weather
Used cart

Thirty years ago this used to be a great course.

Granted, we have had a lot of rain lately, but just left or right of the fairway was a quagmire of mud and water on many of the holes. There was no way to retrieve balls hit in these areas without loosing your shoes in the mud.The greens held good shots and putted fairly true, but were very slow. The fairways for the most part were very playable I wish someone at Golf Now would have alerted me to the poor conditions ahead of time, as I surely would not have played here. Also, we were playing fairly fast on the front nine, only to find that the course must have sent players off both the front and back nines, so the back nine played very slowly.

Pathetic maintenance

My 3some probably lost close to 15 balls because of course maintenance. Some holes had Beth Page Black like rough, in some spots there where areas up to my calves. The worst part was the that it appeared that the just dumped cut grass in the rough. I have played 5 or 6 courses this year, none of which did I pay $30 to play 18, and none of them were close to this bad.

Horrible

Course is garbage. Very old and very out of shape. I hit every fairway but still lost 2-3 balls on every hole due to the grass being so out of it. Would never ever step on this field ever again.

Terrible

This course is terrible. Lost 12 balls in the fairway. Grass has not been cut in at least 3 weeks. Paid full price on a Sunday and knew it would be cart path only since it had rained a few days before. What they didn’t tell us was that the course was flooded. Gas carts didn’t work, needed to use the choke every time you got in for the whole round. Tee boxes were not cut. June 2nd and no water in any of the water jugs. Should have been a discounted round but in reality they shouldn’t have even been open. Really disappointed

Should not have opened

Booked through GolfNow. We’ve had a lot of rain over the past few weeks, so on the first sunny day, we grabbed the very reasonably priced tee time. Unfortunately, the course should not have been open for play. Our twosome lost five balls in the first two holes, some of them in the fairway. The fairways were completely flooded, the balls sunk deep in the mud where they landed. A few inches off the fairways, the rough was easily 9 inches long and unless you were standing right on top of it, your ball was lost. The greens were covered with debris from the surrounding trees. We quit after the second hole. Unfortunately, because we paid in advance and the course was open for play, we couldn’t get a refund or even a raincheck.

TERRBLE MANAGNENT

The owner has given up on this course and is squeezing the last bit of profit left. Low mantience, bad managnent, bad amenities. For the cherry on top the strap on my cart broke and my golf clubs went flying against pavement and damaged my brand new M4 driver. Will NEVER be back.

Worst conditioned golf course I have played in many years. Over-grown trees render many unfair required shots.

What a waste

This use to be a wonderful course for the money there charging and the conditions won't be around much longer. And where is the ranger we had two threesomes who at best shot well in to the hundreds and still spent 10 minutes each lining up every putt

No no no

The “old man” the owner is the rudest person I’ve ever met. I was treated very poorly by owner and staff. Course is in bad condition, found over 10 balls in rough from poor management (that’s a plus). Overall don’t waste your money.

Needs A LOT of work

I knew that when I played here it wasn't gonna be great but I didn't think it would be this bad. The clubhouse is very rundown and old, the practice green is kept long, tee boxes uneven. I will say that once on the course, I enjoyed the layout and thought while slow, the greens rolled well. Granted it was a weekend, but in no way shape or form should this golf course be charging more than $35 for a round. If they improve upon maintenance, I think people would enjoy the layout.

WORST COURSE IN CHICAGOLAND AREA

What a compete waste of time and money. Course was in terrible shape, the owner (the old man) is beyond rude and is stuck is his old ways. Not to mention the carts damaged my club by falling from cart because of the weak straps (several times). I was beyond furious. NEVER AGAIN.

Greens super slow

Course has nice layout. But unfortunately there are no fairways. It's all rough. The greens need to be cut. You need a driver to putt on greens!!! Pace of play is excellent, due to course being empty.
