Tis only April during a late spring however the course is in great shape. The sand traps are in good condition. The greens are fast. It is a few shekels more than other local courses however the place is always in great shape.

for this time of when the grass is dorment they rolled the greens . It was like putting on a pool table! which would have been awesome if 1 green was flat ! Very challenging pin placements all round. Had a great time.

I cannot give it a complete rating because I gave up after #10. Granted, it was a picture perfect Sunday for October in Chicago so the course was very busy. The course itself is in perfect condition from tee to greens. My one complaint about the course, which would probably improve the pace of play somewhat, would be to cut the first rough a little shorter as the ball would just disappear as soon as it landed making it very difficult to find your ball.

Bring your entire bag. You'll need all the clubs and may be found utility and woods more often on the front and driver on the back 9. Tough but fair course. Good practice facility and great Reuben!

Will not rush out to play again. Slow Saturday round (understandable) but did not finish. No sign of marshal, but again crowded weekend golf. That I can stomach if the couse is worth it, this course is not. Not my cup of tea. Very crammed in feeling. Too many short sub 400 yd par 4's, cheesy dog legs, flat terrain. Hole 16 is clearly the nicest, most interesting hole imo. At least we got to play it before night fall. Won't play again any time soon. Way too many other nicer, better value rounds to play.

I have grown to love and fear this course. It appears so harmless but is loaded with tricky challenges. The greens are also more challenging than they look. Nice water features/hazards. Great staff. Great accessible location.

Oak Brook is a decent setup considering lack of land. A lot of water on the front to make up for it. It is usually in pretty good shape but is very overpriced. If you can get it for $40 or less it is worth it otherwise look elsewhere.
