Nice course

I think that the course was in very good condition. The greens were rolling the best all year. I have played about 20 courses this year and this course had the best greens in terms of speed. The course was very playable. I was one of the first to tee off and I played in roughly 80 minutes my 9 holes.

A lot of fun

Willow Hill is not like a lot of the golf courses around the Chicagoland area. Its small but a fun 9 hole course. Friendly staff, with a good pace of play. If you like walking this is a great course on a nice day. The last bunker is a bit muddy.

It's not bad

Look I have 2 points.
1) Friendly staff 5/5.
2) Seems not maintained well 3/5

Worth the price? Think about it...Short holes for the most part with hills. A bad slice can go onto another player's fairaway. I would play again...just not anytime soon. The wind...you know.

disappointing

No starter or ranger on course. A group of 7 (yes 7), just goofing off, slowed down everyone. It was finally broken up on the 6th hole after someone called the club house, but the damage was done.

They were doing some work on the sprinklers and the cart paths were in tough shape. Greens as always were fun but showing the play they get, but overa

This is a really fun course for an average golfer that wants a fair challenging 9 holes, maybe the Best 9 hole value in the area. Staff is very friendly and professoinal

Much Improved

Willow Hill had slipped into awful condition under the previous owner, but the new management has made substantial improvements this year. The weeds on the fairways, the dandelions on the greens and the knee-high rough are all gone. I gave up on this course more than a year ago, but it's much better now. More work is being done, so it should get better still.

Good day at Windy Hill !

The good : Course was in pretty good shape today, great views, good course for walking, got a good Hot Deal price.The not so good - it’s ALWAYS windy here, so be prepared; pace of play tends to run on the slow side. The driving range was really busy, but following the socially distance guidelines, with lots of junior golfers (which is a good thing). All in all it’s a good place if you want to just play 9 and get some exercise in.
