I feel there should be some notification when a course is aerating
It really takes away from the enjoyment of a round of golf
They were not properly backfilled in and putting was impossible
Should have been a discounted rate
Was not allowed to play due to frost on the ground. They said course was unplayable. I would like my money refunded please.
Great Staff and Course
Always love playing this course, pace was great and course condition better than any of the public courses and some privates I play.
There are a few very tough holes but there are equally a few very easy ones to offset the tough ones
I really like this course! It's both challenging and forgiving! The greens and fairways were for the most part in really good shape ,although the bunkers were like cement. I try to play this course two or three times a year, and will continue to do so!
Great course in great condition. My overall review would be great if not for a few exceptions. One, if you aren't with a group of 3 or 4 they force you to play with another group of 2. Not that I mind meeting new people but it hasn't always been great. Today, it worked out fine. We played with nice guys and they played ready golf. Last year, we got paired up with guys shooting 9's and 10's on every hole and the round took forever. The other issue is they frown on bringing your own beverages which I understand but we didnt see beverage cart until the 16th hole. On a very hot day, that wasn't cool. Otherwise, great course and I will play again.
This course was in immaculate shape considering all the inclement weather that the area has incurred this season. Such an extremely wet spring and now the extreme heat of summer. The maintenance staff has done an outstanding job. From tee to green the course is visually appealing esthetically to the eye. Greens rolled true.
And the golf course staff was very friendly and welcoming from the pro shop to the starter/ranger and also the beverage cart girl.
It is the perfect place to enjoy a round of golf.
Haven’t been here in years, course has more teeth than I saw today due to low winds. Greens were smooth and rolled true. Entire course in great shape. Grip and rip but be smart on 5!
Beautiful day on a very nice course
After some overnight rain, the course was in great shape. Greens were firm and fair, fairways in terrific condition. As a twosome, we played behind a foursome, but moved very well on the front 9, then slowed the back half. 4 1/2 hours overall. Beautiful day, great course, no excuses! Ranger presence throughout the round; but no refreshment cart until 18!?!? What’s that about?
Course was in great shape and pace of play was fairly quick. The course was fairly challenging but not too much for the average player. I would definitely recommend this course to a friend.
Course is in excellent condition, tees and greens very good.
Pace of play a little slow, conditions were VERY windy.
We will absolutely go there again!
I have grown to love this course more and more. The rough is extremely difficult due to the rain. However the crew is working hard to keep it in great shape. Greens are excellent and the fairways are nice. It is hard to spin the ball right now but overall, this is a challenging course, especially from the black tees. Everyone from the golf shop to starter are great guys. Overall, this is a must play. And keep your eye out for the Silver Fox.
Nice round today with fellow veterans. Course in good condition considering all of the rain lately. 90 degree rule in effect was ok and justified. Greens in excellent condition and above average speed.
The Home of 5 1/2 hour rounds
Sanctuary has a great layout. However, every year, I endure a 5 1/2 hour round here and that's it for the year. I don't care if you play the course 5 times a week, that doesn't give you the right to play as slow as you want. Actually, the round started well. We played the first four holes in 44 minutes. Then, we played the last 14 in 4:45. Think about that for a mirute. Some rules. 1. If the group ahead tells you at the turn that it's going to get slow, maybe they are the problem. 2. If you can't reach the fairway, maybe move up a tee or two. 3. Don't sit in your cart watching one player hit. Prepare to hit while another player is hitting his shot. 4. We saw marshalls all day long. Not sure what their job is because monitoring pace of play isn't one of their duties.
Great Course with Fair Prices
Sanctuary has been one of my favorites in the Southwest Suburbs for awhile now. Great layout, conditions, and greens. Today, they were finally cutting the grass after a brutal stretch of rainy days. The uncut rough was super long. All things considered, course was still in great shape. Greens were rolling very well. At $30 during the week & $42 on the weekends, Sanctuary is about as good of a deal as you can get in the area.
Good pace of play for 16 holes
Great day, great price. All good until t he 16 th hole. Then, the threesome ahead of us decided to have a long discussion at the green after they putted out. Waited 10 minutes for them to finish, and two of them took off presumable to find open holes to replay. The third continued and he could not have been any slower. He decided it was ok to hit multiple shots, and played 17 very slowly. When he got to the 18th tee, he dropped several balls and now was practicing chipping. Then, he hit two tee balls, and multiple other balls on the hole. After he putted out, he walked off the green, dropped some balls, and practiced chipping again. Meanwhile, we waited in the fairway until he decided he was gone. I'm assuming that he owns the course.
Extremely windy day, greens were slow. Played 4/21 greens still too slow weather better, however. Staff was great. A good value. I will play Gain. Challenging course.
WHAT A GEM!
I could write a story about this course. I should write a story about this course. But I won't. Just go if you haven't.
