New layout is nice

First time playing after the renovation, it’s a bit pricey for the course but probably one of the better courses in our area. Tough greens! Course was in nice shape.

Felt Like a Private Course

My first time playing this course, and I will definitely be back. I'm about a 14 handicapper and challenged myself from the tips today, and this course delivered a good challenge. Although some tee shots require good accuracy, it is still forgiving. Course conditions were great, although the greens were recently aerated. Course is tucked into a neighborhood away from busy roads, so had all the feelings of a private course. Highly recommend! Will be back.

The course is well maintained even after it rained the last few days. We didn't have to wait for anyone in front of us. The greens are hilly and challenging which makes it a fun course.

Nice course

Course overall is a thinkers course, GPS really helped
Some holes do cross so beware of flying balls
Course winds through a neighborhood and greens are challenging
So bring your game.

Had to leave it was so slow. Seriously.

5somes. 5 min between tee times. Stacked tee boxes. Range was soaking wet turf when the rough was dry. Luckily they let me get a rain check. I’ll try again when it’s early and hopefully not so painfully slow. Like 5 + hours slow.

One of the better values in Chicago

First time playing Mt Prospect, and I wish I would have visited years ago. A tight layout with elevated and heavily undulated greens. In great condition, especially for a muni. The course had electric GPS carts, and pace of play was great. Will be back soon!

Interesting course

A few corky holes for sure, especially on the back 9. Nice layout, just some absurd holes will putting surfaces that will make you scratch your head. Try this course once!
