Interesting place - would play again.

A private club that was hemmed in by the expressway some decades ago. This led to reconstructions of several holes, and I was told 12 remain the original Donald Ross design. Still a wonderful place to play, and the only thing I didn't like was I-80 that was hard by several holes. Teeing off from either 1 or 10, you do get that private club feel. Conditions were generally excellent, unless you stray too far from the primary rough, and the rough was lush and rightly penal. A couple of greens were patchy. In general, the greens were fast and a few were very challenging - the type of greens where you have to know which part to hit to. Overall, you can tell that this club has seen better times, but if you go just for golf, there's something wonderful about this place.

The course is in true country club shape. Greens are so smooth. Grounds crew did a great job on keeping the dead leaves cleared. Played in 3.25 hours on a Friday morning.

Please repair ball marks and divots and keep the course a pleasure to play.

Wonderful parkland D. Ross built 1901

Thanks to GolfNow we enjoyed a "member for a day" deal at this private. They are having a membership drive - Calumet has slightly under 150 members and are trying to get it up into the 180's or so. 7700 to join no food mins. This is a wonderful parkland course that's really challenging from the blues/whites. The silver tees are much more fun. Excellent conditioning and old school greens that have some nice slopes - although I don't think any of the greens are original Ross....a little is left there....but none of which I would say is overtly over the top Ross which I expected a little more of. Really nice routing. Old school clubhouse with nice bar area - men's locker room and showers are really old and could use an update to attract more members as well. Rest of clubhouse interior is extremely tired - exterior of clubhouse looks really nice - the banquet meeting areas are very dated. It didn't appear the pool was open this season - didn't ask so I could be wrong. This is a wonderful play but features I80/I294 along the entire north course boundary and freeway truck/traffic noise is so extreme you have to yell at playing partners just so they can hear you - really tough to "relax" with that type of noise on about 6 holes - so a full star deduction - the noise was too much for me....a real crying shame.....but still would go back as CCC is a lot of old school fun superbly conditioned..
