Wolf Hollow Golf Club
Wolf Hollow Golf Club originally opened in 1928 as Lena Golf Club. The course tumbles across northwest Illinois' gently rolling hills, incorporating quite a few elevation changes into the layout. The golf course has a true risk-reward design that will thoroughly test your shot-making abilities. With proper course management and a bit of luck, there are several birdie opportunities to be had. Measuring in at just over 6,400 yards from the back tees, the course manages to give you a few lengthy holes but it will also put your short-game skills to the test. The 16th is one of Wolf Hollow Golf Club's most intimidating holes because this par 4 has trouble everywhere. A creek and tall grasses guard the left of the fairway and the small green requires a nearly perfect approach shot.

Must Play Course
Fun course to play. Many challenging holes and a few difficult greens. The staff is very friendly.
Very Nice Course
Love the course layout. From the back tees the distance is quite challenging. Several challenging par 3's that are plus 190 yards. Highly recommended the course.
Love this course
My friends and I golf at least 20 different courses every year and this one is in my top 5 all time.
Great course for the price
We liked it so much we played it the next day as well. Greens were excellent. Very nice layout, some long tough par 4s especially on the front 9. Open enough to be playable, but enough places to get in trouble to make it interesting. The rough is thick.
Great course in what felt like the middle of nowhere. Very excellent layout and awesome conditions.
We had just been to Eagle Ridge and played the General
Your course was in better shape . We actually enjoyed it more !!
We had a 1:50 time ,got there early and they got us outwhich was great cause we wanted to get back to Hoffman Estates before dark
Couldn't get over what fabulous condition it was in !!!
Thanks to Golfnow hot deals and a $10 bonus the price was a steal !!!!
Wolf Hollow was a wonderful surprise. I booked the tee time because it was a good price at a location that worked for my group. All of us came away raving about the course. It has beautiful vistas, interesting layouts and enough trouble to keep you on your toes. The front 9 has extensive elevation changes, while the back 9 has more doglegs with blind greens until you get out into the middle of the fairway. It is in great condition. We all look forward to playing it again.
one of our favorites
The course has various holes of difficulty. lots of fun holes. Wonderful scenery abounds on every turn.Once you play this course you will want to come back.
The course was in excellent condition. Fairways were very plush. Greens were not super fast which is to my liking. Foursomes let our twosome play through and we really appreciate that. Will definitely play here again.
Bad customer communicatio
Make sure you ask if there is a play day when making reservations. We played 11 holes and here comes 2 carts toward every hole in front of us. Most likely it would have taken hours for us to finish. They dhould have told us about the play day so we could decide wether to play or not. No offer to refund 9 hole green fee or apologize for screwing up our round. Just a heads up.
Golf now experience
Good value, scheduled 18 holes only played 9 due to such slow play. Tee times every 10 min too close for the caliber of players
We love this course and it makes it affordable with this deal. The weather was a little chilly but the course was in great shape!
The course is challenging & has friendly staff
Had a very nice time! Got to go out 1 hour early which gave us more time to enjoy the course! Very friendly staff, & course is very well manicured. A nice variety of elevation & different challenges. Would recommend to any golfer beginner to pro!!
Nice one Time Course to Travel to on Bucket List.
I made the long 2 hour drive to Wolf Hollow to play this course located in Lena Illinois to see how this course was. I was paired up with 2 great guys from Wisconsin as well, whom had played this track before, so I had help with all the holes. And yes if your not a long ball hitter, you do face a lot of blind shots not only from the tees but fare ways as well. I hit my 3 wood all day here to the 150 markers as this course even from the blue tees where we played is not very long and not hard to navigate. I was on every green in two but maybe the par 5's. This is an easy course to play and it is drying out so the ball will roll for you off the tees to. Nice size greens and soft. And rolled a bit slow for me, but they were nice and green no burn spots. This would be a great course to bring a beginner to because of how easy it is. . And Brian was a great golfer whom I played with made me a better player here. he fired a 74, and I holed out being a 11 Handicap at 39-40=79 having 2 birdies on the first to holes. Loved the carved wolf statue on the back 9. Only difficult hole would be hole 16 and only because you have to drive through a funnel to the hill on the other side, but hit a 3 wood 200 and your facing being on in 2 and a birdie try, we did. I had fun playing it, but not much to bring me back to play again. But I would recommend it once. Enjoyed he rolling hills here though. Did not see any Wolfs though... Bummer....
Decent muni course
booked tee time through golf now and played 18 holes for $11. At that price the course is great and I would continue to go back. However for full price I don't feel it is worth it. The greens were in rough shape. Lots of foot scuffs, dead spots and bumpy. The greens were also pretty slow on some holes and others in better shape and faster. It made it difficult to play do to the inconsistency.
With the excellent condition of the course and the friendliness of the staff this course deserves 6 stars. The only thing I wish were different is that they be located closer to home. The course is challenging and extremely fun to play. I recommend everyone play here whenever possible.
