Fairways in Bad Shape

While the greens are fine, the fairways are in bad shape. Crab grass, swaths of dirt with no grass, tire tread marks, Some fairways have poor distance markings. This is not just because the past two weeks have been so dry. Sad.

Good Value Muni

Turns into a really nice course after third hole. Can alternate between soggy and baked out, but plays in a forgiving and entertaining manner and the price is right. Tends to move along at a decent pace.

Beginners course

Poorly conditioned fairways. The course is more weeds in the fairway with burned out fairway grass and dirt. Greens were okay and they rolled fairly well.

Slow play - no marshall or beverage cart. For an older or beginner player, this course will work for you. I played their due to its location.

Decent little track not too far outside of the city

Sometimes, you just want to get a round in without much concern for quality and spending too much money. Chick Evans lets you do this. While tee boxes and fairways are not in great shape, the greens were in great condition. As a shorter course, depending on your level, you may not be hitting driver too many times, if at all. Some narrow tee shots make for a few welcomed challenges on an a somewhat easy course. While I won't necessarily come to Chick Evans frequently, I'll definitely be back!

Fun Round

Short but fun course, hit driver on most holes.
Fairways are not watered, so you get lots of roll. Drink cart was around several times.
I had a 3 hour round - expected it would be longer. Can’t wait to play this course again!

Pace of Play is Excruciating

This isn't a terrible course, and its close to the city. Stop trying to pack people into tee times. Another 5+ hour round at Chick Evans.

Figure out the pace. Separate tee times with a wider buffer, or have a ranger enforce pace a play.

Garbage, No Grass

1/2 the fairways missing large patches of grass, Greens looked like a mine field. Nobody fixes pitch marks. For the conditions this course should be 20 bucks or less for first timers or players new to the game only. The forest preserve should be embarrassed with these conditions.

Great Course but sneaky with prices

Both my friend and I Paid $44 each for 18 w/cart. Was told it was only for 1 cart and wanted to charge an additional $17 each for another cart. That’s not what I paid for and was rude.
