Foss Park Golf Course
Foss Park Golf Course has a convenient location in North Chicago that is an easy drive in from the city. It's a public course that is known amongst locals for being one of the area's best golf values. The layout is wide-open save for three holes that are framed by towering mature trees. The golf course strikes a good balance between being challenging and playable. The fairways are narrow and demand accuracy but the massive greens are more forgiving. Each hole offers a variety of different playing options, which makes the course appealing to a wide range of skill levels. The golf course has plenty of sand, plus water hazards come into play on several holes. There is also a driving range and large practice putting green available at Foss Park G.C.

Course was still a bit wet but all in all was still in decent shape.
The course was in great shape
The course was near mid summer conditions. I have played a few area courses this spring and this course had the best rolling greens and course conditions. The staff makes you feel very welcome and is a reason I come back.
Every thing ok but staffs was horrible cause I arrived 35 minuets early my tee time they say you have to TeeOff right time not even 1 minuet maybe course was busy I understand but nobody in the course cause weather was too hot
So I was waiting 35 minuets I don’t see anybody 1st tee box until my tee time. I play golf 35 year but I never like this happen.
Fun and Tougher than it looks
Fun course that is all about putting your tee shot in the right place. Don’t be fouled by the shortness of the coure. You might be leaving Driver in the bag a lot. Big greens but don’t get above the hole.
We had fun, a large variety of holes, rewards for staying in the fairway, challenging.
Course was in fine condition after a week of heavy rains. Drained well and we were not restricted to cart paths. Greens are very large and reasonably fast. Great value for the money.
Great Time out at Foss Park
Great Time out at Foss Park. Greens and all grasses in great shape. Some trees have been eliminated on the centrally located holes to make the very densely wooded areas just outside the rough a bit more forgiving, but I still like the way Foss Park trades having an abundance of trees, and the punch-outs they often require for comparatively fewer sand traps around the greens. This was my second round at FP this season and it definitely will not be my last--good weather, good staff, good condition, good fun.
I play this course at least a couple times every year. It was on the best shape, that I've seen, in several years. Was a pleasure to play, especially with the rate I got on line.
Great practice course!
this course is a perfect combo of golf value. I am a 18 handicap. The course is long enough and overall a great practice golf course. There are some very narrow and dangerous holes such as the 4th, 5th, 12 and 13. The rest are straight forward. Great deal from golfnow!
The customer service was terrible at this course!!!!!
Had a good time it was chilly out and few players so I just cruised around the course and played fairly well for the cool windy day it was. Beat the rain and just enjoyed the good practice I got in!
was windy course played tough but that is what the game is about!
Played here a few times, very wide open fairways, a few challenging holes but nothing to bad for the average player, will be coming back often when deals are offered
