Great course

Great all around course. But I would not pay$85 to play. Worth $50. I play there a few times every summer. Some of the holes have houses very close. Keep it straight:)

Great course in the area

Great course, and awesome conditions for this late in the season. Only complaint is there was an additional $20 riding fee/player we were not expecting. Yes $20/player, not per cart.

Slow, slow, slow

At the 14th hole and 4 1/2 hours into the round, we decided to call it a day. Rangers did nothing to speed up the play.

Fix the tee boxes

1st timer. This course gave Chick Evans a run for the money, and it was more expensive. No even tee boxes. Course felt condensed. Not all narrow, but close together. Some difficult holes. A lot of geese. Greens slow. Course play was fine.

Groundskeeper Willy

I think the head groundskeeper spends more time writing fake reviews than working on the course.

Bring extra long tees. The tee boxes look like the rough but the rough looks like asphalt.

The course does have a scenic view of the TJ Max parking lot!

Not the best pace of play

A high school team was injected at the 10th between regular golfing groups. Groups who finished the front 9 before the team had to wait for more than 30 mins to tee off on the 10th. I was playing single and my round took 6 hours! Good putting green but terrible driving range.

Nice Public Course....

Watch out the $ 65 rate does not include a cart. it is $ 20 bucks more per person. $ 85 bucks.... for Sunday at 9 am tee time. Not worth the money. Chalet Hills & Foxford Hills in Cary, IL are both cheaper and better courses. Maybe I am just spoiled form over the years of playing & living in Cary.

Not worth the money

Paid 70 ish for this course. Should be worth 35. Not terrible but the pictures make it look like medinah. Just not worth the money and the holes are on top of eachother. Maybe just play the back 9

Get a Mower

Who wants to walk through goose crap on a course that has not been mowed in a month? You can enjoy the scenic view of the 1950s clubhouse on 18 while you sift through the range balls which have not been picked up since spring. Craptacular..

Tough course, but a little over priced

First time playing Old Orchard. It's a challenging course, for me at least (10 handicapper), and can definitely be confusing getting around to the next hole. As for the course conditions, the tee boxes were the biggest problem. They seemed really nice, but were actually really squishy. You'd place a tee and your feet would sink a few inches below–it was strange. Pace of play was slow, but I'd chalk that up to the extreme heat. It's a pretty course overall. But cart and 18 holes set me back $85 and I think that's a little steep for this course. It's nice, but that's a little too much for me.

Despite the wind and rain

It was a great day at Old Orchard CC. Really nice layout and in reasonably good nick as they say. Shows wear from the high volume of players it handles but the grass and greens were in overall fine condition. Can’t wait to go back.

A gem

A great, unrushed round!
One suggestion would be better signage and scorecard. Had several confusing moments not knowing which way to the next hole.
