Overall conditions were excellent. Greens rolled true and quick but did show a little wear and tear from high traffic. Sand in bunkers was well maintained. Fairways and roughs were in good shape and cut to good length. Pace of play backed up on the front 9 from heavy holiday play but improved on back 9. It seemed the ranger could have prompted slower groups a little more.
THis was the first time I've played it and it was great. I'm glad I was golfing with a very knowledgeable man who pointed out the little pitfalls that you usually get into when you play for the first time blindly. The course is in excellent shape. The only thing that puzzled me was the speed of the greens as I'm used to a little faster greens and I left quite a few putts short.
The slowest course, doesn’t get any pace of play marshaling. Course layout is even worse...
grest public course but very slow play by a group two holes ahead and no marshall. 5 hour round doesnt work when they had two holes empty in front of them. couldnt get a drink or food on the turn one lady working and waited more then 10 minutes without her acknowledging us. group after us said she wont come to window and we needed to go inside which at this point we didnt have time to do. stopped in after the round to ask if they were looking for help and she didnt like my suggestion of needing more employees. been here 15 years and only get out to oak brook once a year for these reasons. great place just thought id finally give some feedback
There was confusion regarding tee times as they double booked our reserved tee time. Because we were not permanent tee time users they blamed us for the mix up and made the experience very unwelcoming. If you are not a regular at Oak Brook, they don’t want your business.
Really a 5-some is at the tee box on 1
Probably the most awful experience I have had in a very long time . The pace of play was awful and we had nearly a 15+ minute wait per hole . The course was oversold . The starter let a 5-some tee off in front of my 3-some . The starter added a random person to our 3-some when we were getting on to hole two and then a ranger took one of our golf carts back in the middle of our round because they were short .
Could be a great course if they spaced tee times better and enforced pace of play .
Green, lush, and a new outdoor patio
Great shape, and a new gathering spot after an enjoyable round
The course was extremely wet due to a lot of rain the previous day but still in good shape despite the rain. The greens were surprisingly fast despite the dampness and not being cut. Even though the weather was not the best it was still an enjoyable day. Pace of play was good.
Very challenging but beautiful course. Loved every bit of it. Love the natural grass practice grounds
Poor rain refund
Course is always in great shape.
We had a unexpected downpour that ended up causing us to get a refund. We finished 3 holes and would only give us 75% back in a course rain check. Short of what we paid.
Manager said the policy is pending on how many holes you played, 75%, 50% or 25%.. If anyone would have been on hole one you only get 75% back.
Just a little disappointed about the rain check otherwise highly recommend on a sunny day!
Don’t go on a weekend
The people working the cards and the grill are always friendly. Front desk not so much.
Anyway, no Ranger ever spotted on the course led to me leaving after 5 hours and 12 holes.
The group I played with gave up after nine, pthe people I linked up with on 10 gave up after the 11th hole.
Nice course, it’s challenging and in good shape, but never again.
