Awful

Only good thing about this course is the staff, they were pretty nice!

Course was horrible quality, and it took aver 3 hours for an experienced twosome to play nine holes... we quit after 11 holes it was that bad. Do not recommend!

Worth your money

One of the best values in the north suburbs. Interesting layout surrounded by trees. Opens year round, and price with cart is affordable.

A lot of rain in the Chicago area over the last month made it a tough course. Wet throughout but would love to come back when it dries up a bit

Too Wet!

The course was almost too wet to play. Super slow round. Waited on every hole. Despite all the water the greens were in surprising good shape and putted true. Course where not under water was a beautiful green. Clubhouse does not have too many amenities. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Slow pace

Tee time was at 10:45, didn't get off until 11:30. Don't know why they even have tee times there. Narrow course with greens and tee boxes close to each other. Always hearing people talking/screaming. Bike path is next to a few holes and they were constantly screaming while I was trying to hit. Extremely slow pace of play. Really not a great experience

Play at own risk

I went out early to avoid the heat and I was very disappointed with pace of play. No starter to begin with and the front nine took 2 hours with 2 golfers, not upset considering there were large groups ahead. At the turn, multiple groups jumped ahead and played the back nine. 6:30 start and ended at 11am. 3.5 hours to play the back 9. I’m sorry but that’s just stupid. I will not be going back ever.

The bad, the bad and the ugly

This was an awful experience and I will never play this course again. I know it’s cheap but trust me, spend the extra $20-$40 for a nicer course. Cheap courses bring out the bad golfers, pretty sure the group in front of us topped at least 1 tee shot on each tee. I would know since we we’re forced to watch them all in waiting.

Other:
-No carts upon arrival
-There was 2 groups on every tee (us and the group teeing off) pretty much every hole
-Pace of play was 5 hours and 15m min (on a 5,800 yard course)
-Hot dogs were average at best (this is me being picky but I love me a good dog during a round)
-Course itself was in awful shape, all the gress was dead and there was a large portion of just dried dirt areas

Honestly, I wish I read the reviews before playing here. I wouldn’t have done it.

Great for Mediocre Golfers Living In and Around Chicago

- Not overly expensive.
- Not overly difficult; however, there are challenging holes.
- Greens were being aerated when we played, which was annoying to play on.
- No ranger to tell the slow group ahead of us to pick up the pace of play, but still played 18 in 4.5 hours.
