Fun time

This is a redesigned course with very interesting holes. Some greens are difficult to reach but rewarding when accomplished. The greens are big and fast but putt true with many undulations. The fairways are reasonably wide and in great condition. Overall it’s a joy to play. A country club feel for a park district.

Coolest Public track in near West Burbs

This is an awesome golf course. The layout is fun and the greens are interesting. Great par 5s and par 3s. Would play here more if I lived closer. People who live in Mt. prospect are so lucky to have this place.

Best round ever at this course!

Decided to play last Thursday. It was a beautiful day. Play was a little slow but that is not unusual for the course. It was in fairly good shape. The greens were challenging as they always are. I ended up shooting my best round ever there, including 2 birdies. Met some nice golfers, had a great time. Looking forward to my next round there.

Old is New Again

This is a 1920’s course with a rehab that makes it very fair and fun. Some people say the mult-tiered greens are tricked up. But it makes things a challenge for lower handicappers. Conditions are good and lush for as much play as they get. Still has some of the country club feel. No weak holes but par 5’s are short.
Starter acts militant, which is good if they push everyone equally. But they seem reluctant to punish slow groups.
Greens can be very fast and challenging. You will get a putt that is impossible, but why did you hit it there?
Bunkers are a little thin on sand in spots. But they rake them daily.
You will have memorable shots both good and bad by the end of the round.

Nice course

This course is very nice,but the greens are like those on a Miniature golf course. All that's missing are wind mills, pendulums,etc. Nice conditions, but slow players.

Terrific Layout

This was the first time I’ve played this course and it did not disappoint. Since I heard of the redesign a couple years ago, I’ve always wanted to give it a shot. The layout was excellent and the greens were all different. They had many different breaks to them with a lot of raised greens. They were in great shape and rolled really nice. Clubhouse was also a nice feature with the re build. Highly recommend this course. Challenging but fair.

I love this course normally but on this round the pace was horrible and the greens were pretty beat up. Almost every putt was like a jumping bean

Target Golf

The driver didn’t come of the bag much today, this course is about putting your ball in the right spot - A thinking mans golf course. Greens are challenging, lots levels and undulations, also decently fast, but seemed true. Thoroughly enjoyed my round, Glad I was out on an early tee time though, by the time I was finishing at 10am it looked busy. Definitely will be adding this track to my rotation!

Great Course Greens are Unfair

Overall this is a great course. Conditions are good, nice range and amenities. The greens are like mini golf though. You hit what you think is a good approach shot only to find out the ball is in a valley on the green or worse yet has rolled off. Pin placement is a whole other complaint. We aren’t pros so I really don’t know why these greens were designed this way. I will continue to hold here though

Mt Prospect GC

Played as a single in under 3 hours, teed off at 8am, course wasn’t busy. The greens are still ridiculous, too big and undulating. Hit one chip from just off the green and rolled completely off the front. Short course from the white tees, position / target course. Definitely have to be in right spots on the greens,

What did they do to the greens

The course gets a little funky on the back 9, as they don't have a ton of space. I don't think I hit a driver until 7.

The greens might be the most annoying greens I've ever played on. I understand undulation, but these just don't make sense. There is very little undulation on the other 99% of the golf course, and then you get to the greens and you are basically playing 'Adventure Land Putt-Putt'. Multi-tiered greens, with the pins being placed on the downhill portion. Pins being placed in valleys/bowls.

Then you get to the pace of play. If you are not the first tee-time out, then good luck. It's a 5.5 hour round. I've cut my round short 2-3 times as I was rounding 3 hours at the turn. The half-way house doesn't take cards, which forces people to go inside. There is only a ranger at the first tee box. And I don't know what it is about this course, but it brings out the worst golfers in Chicago, who are almost proud of slow-play. People are there to drink/party, and not play golf.

The course layout is short, target golf, with funky (not in a good way) greens. I like the practice range/putting green/chipping. The inside bar is nice. But the course itself is meh.

How is your food and beverage place closed at 6??

Awesome golf. We finished around 6 and were hoping to get some food or at least a couple drinks. Everything was closed down when we got off the course. We had planned on staying for a 3-4 drinks but had to go home. Since the change in food management 2 years ago it’s really honestly down hill.
