Great bang for the buck !!! No drink cart on weekdays, so plan ahead at the clubhouse bar/stand (they were very accomidating with bags of ice to keep beverages cold).
If you need to practice your game this place is wonderful.
Alot of par 3's to help build up your confidence.
Finished round in about 3 hours
stay way from this course
I normally don't do this but today I had the WORST experience. The Golf course Ranger was a completely dissaster. I come to Chicago ones a month for business and I like to enjoy a nice golf course after meetings and calls. I got to the course about 8:30 AM and a nice lady at the pro Shop advised me that I need to be at the 10th hole before 9:30 Am because there is a group of 8 schedule at that time, well I went to the green for about 20 minutes and then approached to the 10th hole. After my first shot, when I was waiting for the group on from of me to step out of the green, this unprofessional (course Ranger), told me to leave because there was a league playing and I was not supposed to be there. I understand that they may have an event but the way he approached to me was so disrespectful that I had to leave the course immediately.
Ones again, I normally don't like to do this, but I will never go back to that course. If you still want to go, I hope that you get a different experience and you probably will enjoy your time there.
I just want to mention some courser that a visited before around that area that really care about customers experience not like this one.

A little gem.
Great place to work on your short game. Well kept for a busy municipal course. Challenging greens. I will be back.
Always a fun time at Stony Creek
It's always a pleasure to golf at Stony Creek Golf Course. Friendly staff, good value, good pace of play and a well maintained course!
Quiet and secluded
Other than the constant planes you would have no idea that you were in Chicago the way this course is tucked into the woods. Wide forgiving fairways and deer running across the fairways multiple times during our game.
Stoney Creek Golf Course
This is the first time that I played this course. I enjoyed the layout, the nice fairways and greens. I initially picked this golf course because it was shorter in yardage than most golf courses in the area, yet it was an 18 hole course. I played with my adult daughter, who hasn't played golf since she was a little girl. I was amazed by the variety of holes and also by some of the carries over water. I was also amazed at how well she did under the circumstances. I am looking forward to bringing my grandchildren out to play here as well. Dan Mackey
Don’t be deceived by the yardage. Great greens, occasional sand traps,, but an interesting layout that will test your iron game .
Weekend golf is usually painfully slow, but today’s visit was lucky timing as I began immediately after an outing which had just ended. I finished my round in under 2 hours behind another single who also zoomed through the course.
- Short distance and extra par 3s give the shorter irons more action.
- Course fairways, greens, and tees were in acceptable condition.
- Fleet of golf carts are in need of being replaced.
- Only found two bunkers today, but both were crusty and in poor condition. Need more sand and some TLC.
- From a cosmetic standpoint things such as fence posts, signs, cart paths, and bridges could use some attention and updates.
Good Fairways and good looking greens
All in good condition golf course for a good price$
Fun course for the money
My wife and I played this course almost weekly last summer, and plan to play a lot this summer. We played for the first time this year on Sunday, and the course seemed to be in better condition than last year. There’s always water on the course, so that’s a plus. A downside is the slow pace of play. The course also seems to attract people who like to play their music loudly from their carts. Otherwise it’s a fun course, and have a great deal on a pitcher of beer after the round.
Par 65 or about
Fun course. Short course.
Challenging. I played in 35 mph winds today, other than that, it was good.
Course is challenging
Like playing at Stoney Creek only bad thing was many blotches on the greensOr
Great course and great staff. Already going back 4 days later after playing. Only reason for the 4 stars is that I had to avoid a pair of coyotes near hole 4.
Ready for spring!
I was pleasantly surprised by the nice layout of this golf course. While the the rough and fairways were still quite wet following some heavy rain during the past week and the ground thawing out after winter, the greens were in better shape than expected for the beginning of March. The bunkers around the course didn’t appear to have any issues with standing water, but none of the bunkers had been raked in quite some time and contained firmly packed sand.
Despite this course being quite short in length, I think it provides a great opportunity to leave the driver at home and work on mostly iron shots, a few fairway metals off the tees of the longer holes, and chipping/pitching if you’re unable to get onto the greens in regulation. Overall, I was pleased with the course and look forward to returning to firmer and drier conditions where I won’t lose any plugged balls in fairways or the rough immediately surrounding the fairways.
