Course was in great condition, but the pace was really slow. Took 2 hours and 50 minutes to complete 9 holes. Our foresome had to wait on every tee for a threesome with carts in front of us.
I will not be going back
Went last year in the Fall the courses weren't that busy and I had a buddy we were and just wanted to play 2 and they just kept sticking people with us until it was 4 even though there was no wait when we got there. I know they do these kinds of things if the day is packed on the corse however on this day it was not the case even the man in the pro shop could not belive how slow it was as far as activity on the course
To be fair if you are looking to play a beautiful course and have 4 you should have no problems with this course
Great tee boxes. Even got complimentary sunscreen. Very senior and lady friendly.
Wednesday Boys Again
I have played here a number of times and always have a good experience. The course is in good shape; tee boxes, fairways and greens. Staff is very friendly ; pro shop, starter and rangers. These people now how to do it and seem to have a good time doing it. Restaurant is also good with reasonable prices.

Excellent experience. Course is not too easy or too hard. Great for new golfers and has good challenges for experienced golfers too. A lot of fun
Horrible customer service.
Customer service was Horrible. We made it to the FIRST green and the Ranger was already getting on us for being too slow. First words out of his mouth were "Is there a problem here?" Completely rude. We are seasoned golfers and we were playing a normal pace. At hole 7, he again returned and became verbally confrontational. We all became very angry. He kept yelling "2 Hour 14 Minute pace!" We had let another group play through that had only 3 golfers, so we were 5 minutes off pace. I've golfed for 30 years and have NEVER been treated so poorly by a ranger. Ruined my Sunday. My foursome will not play this course ever again. I tried calling the course multiple times, and just get sent to voice mail, and no one calls me back. Very unprofessional. Judging by other reviews, this is a normal occurrence.
Good, long holes. Modestly wide fairways. Well-kept and a friendly place.
Great 9 hole couse
The Lisle Park District really takes care of this place!
Very tough holes for a 9-hole course. Rates with the toughest in the area.
Bring extra balls! Love the golf bike.
I really enjoyed playing this lovely and challenging course. The golf bike option was the most fun I've had on a course. There is no extra charge, and you get a little extra exercise while biking and golfing.
A Nice Walk on a fair course
I'm with the last guy....snuck a six pack in my bag and walked nine on a Saturday afternoon. I was squeezed between a couple twosomes but enjoyed my nine holes. And for $22 for an out -of-towner, it was a great deal. The course itself has a few teeth here and there. Keep the ball in play is key...a fair amount of woods and fescue/marsh to eat up wayward hits.
I was visiting a friend nearby and know that the area is pretty wealthy...to find a weekend nine for $22 ($37 for 18) on a great walking course with an interesting enough layout and great conditions...what's not to like. Yeah, it's probably slow most times in the morning and there are a lot of guys who don't seem to know a lot about golf around, but whatever.. Ditch the cart, grab a few, and go for a nice walk.
Great Price. Good, hard course,Slow play
Very good, hard course. conditions are great. Plays SLOW. And they run out of carts, alot.
The course is excellent
Excellent course, excellent people, and superb food and quaint surroundings.
Ok if you have time. .
This is a 9 hole course. It's in nice shape. But the wait time is ridiculous. It takes about 3 and a half hours to get through 9 holes which defeats the purpose of playing 9 holes. Also, there are never enough golf carts. Essentially you have to wait for a cart just before you tee off as people on the 9th hole finish. From start to finish you wait and wait and wait... Just not a good experience.
Sneak a 12 pack on
If you have any plans that would be affected by your round going long, do NOT book a tee time here. If you care about your score and hate standing on a tee box or in the middle of the fairway for a handful of minutes each hole, do NOT play here. There is a starter but the 10+ times I have played here I have yet to tee off on time. I'm sure you're wondering why would I have played here 10+ times based on how this review is going. My answer to that is I live 7 minutes from the course and have only played here when it has been 13 dollars or less on golfnow. As for the course layout it isn't bad by any means. Each hole offers something different and you get a chance to use every club in your bag. The course condition on the other hand is a different story. The starter should be forced to remind everyone to repair their ball marks on the greens because I'm not sure if anyone does. I think the maintenance crew believes that if they just rake the sand around every morning it'll fool us golfers into thinking they actually take care of it. Staff is awesome, very nice. The only problem I've ever had with the staff is when I showed up a few minutes late and the gentleman in the pro shop was giving me a hard time, only for me to walk up to the first tee and sit in line behind 6 other carts full of golfers waiting to tee off. The main reason I made this review is because of the pace of play. Best way I can describe it is I just made my Golfadvior account, wrote this review and I'm only on the 3rd hole. Which is why I say, make sure you sneak on a 12 pack of cold ones. Lotta time to drink! Cheers
My friends and I really had a good time at the club, the greens were well kept, it was the first time they played the course now they want to make it one of their regular courses.
