First time playing Used cart Played 18 holes Excellent weather

Reviewed on

Being a very old (1896) private club in Chicago, it is not easy to get on, but as you'd expect, the course is in phenomenal shape and the amenities (huge clubhouse) are very impressive. Keep in mind I played the course in a scramble for which I did not pay, so I can't attest to the pace of play or value for the money.

Positives: great Donald Ross design features (multi-tiered rectangular greens), great bunkering, and the most pure greens I've ever putted on. There wasn't a blemish to be seen. The whole course was in terrific shape. And very nice practice facility.

Negatives: A lot of holes seem to duplicate the others. I have a hard time going back through my round and finding a true "signature" hole. Very few doglegs, almost every par 4 is dead straight. I felt like I had the exact same club into every hole.

All in all, I don't think Exmoor is worth the hefty price tag that comes with a membership, but if you get invited to play, definitely go. And make sure to have a post-round drink on the patio overlooking the 18th green. A beautiful scene.
