New owners many improvements. Great course .type of course that will challenge you without losing a bunch of balls. The par 3's are not long but requires a lot of shot making

Wow! $15 for round and cart. Seemed like a deal until we got to the first tee. Could not tell what was fairway or rough. Neither had been cut in at least a week. The weed sprouts were 4 to 5 inches tall. The crew was cutting remote areas while we golfed and people had trouble finding balls in rough and fairways. The greens were in very nice condition although needed cutting. Froghairs were long as well. If well groomed this could be a tight challenging course even at 6000 yards. I recommend that GolfNow remove this course from its offerings until improvements are made.

Course needs attention, worth the price if you can get the hot deal, would not pay full price to play. Many bare spots and weeds on fairways.

The course's rough is lined with trees with will penalize you forcing you to punch out of the rough and under the tree limbs. The greens were well kept and sand traps raked and soft.

Got a deal on a twosome Friday night for play on Saturday. Great rate and we were able tee off early. Steady play, only one minor delay. Done in about 3 hours. Would recommend and definitely will play there again.

I found a deal for $13/person and had never played here before. I took my girlfriend here, because she is afraid to golf with other people. I called them and they said they were wide open, and they were. I asked to buy balls for my girlfriend and the guy told me that I could just have as many balls as I want from a basket of lost balls. I picked some good balls that were scuffed out of there. I enjoyed the course. Not the most challenging, but not too easy. many of the greens were pretty small, typical of an older course. I would definitely play here again and the staff was so nice!

I LOVE GolfNow. Also, the people at South Shore are VERY friendly! The greens are very nice. The fairways are very patchy. Overall, this was a wonderful day on a very nice course. Sure couldn't beat the price!!! Highly recommended.

You can't expect to play in the Chicagoland area in October and not have some leaves to deal with. For an early Sunday afternoon round, South Shore had leaves everywhere including the middle of the fairways. The turf condition was awfull, looking like sparse growth filling in after a possible drought and burn out from summer heat. I was surprised the greens were in decent condition although they were on the small end of the scale for size. The tee boxes were below average and require maintenance.

this is not a very good course its almost as if the staff has given up on this course. Its poorly maintained , garage cans are full , the ball washers were empty and this was on a Sunday . This course was discribed to me by the staff as being old fashioned golf, well I'm glad to see the game progress because based on this course the good old days weren't so good !
