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.

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.

- 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.

Decided to try Chick Evans golf course while visiting Chicago. Arrived at 11:45 AM for a 12:22 PM tee time. They had no available golf carts, and the line of people standing and waiting to tee off was long. The starter maintained carts too, so staff presence was sparse. Carts became available as players ended their rounds. We eventually teed off at 12:50 PM. Play was painfully slow. Never saw a ranger to help play along. We finished at 5:30 PM. Never again.

VERY CROWDED. Holes were incredibly short. Zero bunkers. Lots of ruined fairways from flood. Only positives were that it was cheap, and the people I met were all friendly. Would only go back if on a budget with no other options, though.

I've been playing at Chick for more than 10 years and it's always hit or miss. This time it was a miss. We went out at 6am so pace was good, but the course is in terrible shape. Greens are okay but tees are shot and there are many grass less sections. It's like they kind of let it go other than the greens. The course could be really good if they would pump some money into it. I guess you get what you pay for, but I would gladly pay more to play a nicer course.

Short but need to keep them straight! Staff does a great job, and the course is well maintained for the amount of play. Although the course was crowded it played at a reasonable pace of 4 and 1/2 hours.

Staff is great. They continually create promotions to get more golfers on the golf course. This creates great deals for the golfers. My only suggestion would be to install the woman's 18th tee box on the other side of the creek. My wife loves the course, but when we get to 18, it spoils the experience for her. The women's tee box on 18 looks like an afterthought
