Good course, horrendous pace of play

Rangers NEED to do a better job of forcing pace of play. Didn't even finish 15 holes and was at 4 hours and 40 minutes on the course. Absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable.

One of the better courses in Chicagoland

Silver Lake continues to keep its great reputation for a challenging and constantly well maintained golf course. I have always been satisfied with both the north, south courses and also the smaller Rolling Hills course where you can work on your irons. I highly recommend Silver Lake.

The course was in good condition based on high volume of play. The staff as friendly and helpful. Play was very slow on a Sunday afternoon. It was a 5 hour round.

Hello Nancy. Thank you for taking the time to review the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and to best control pace allowing everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve, and will use your comments as guidance in doing so. Thank you for playing North at Silver Lake Country Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Poor Course Management

We were back up anywhere from 2 to 3 groups on every hole. The pace of play was painful. Tried to get a rain check for the balance because it wasn’t fun waiting on every single hoke at least 5 minutes. Was told I couldn’t get a rain check for 9 holes because I already paid for a twilight rate. I get the policy but there was no way we had a fair chance of finishing the round at that pace. Was also told there was an outing causing the backup. Is it really fair players get penalized because the course doesn’t enforce reasonable course management? Sometimes there just are exceptions to your rules Silver Lake or start managing your pace of play.

Rainy Day Turned Around

After arriving at the course a bit before our tee time. We found out that they were holding up tee offs until the rain died down a bit. After spending about an hour in the Club house bar, after two drinks they let us get on the course. Beside conditions being a bit wet, which is underatandable, the course was in great shape and there were a great variety of unique holes. Would definitely play again.

Tee Time Management

Paid full price. Tee off at 12:52 on the North. Finished front 9 at 2:54. Went to 10th tee and found 2 foursomes and a twosome waiting to tee off. Clubhouse told them to start their twilight rounds on 10. Our back nine took 3 hours and 15 minutes with rain for the last 3 holes.

Good layout, poor condition

The course layout is good. Unfortunately it needs better course mgmt. The fairways were closer to a second cut or light rough, but also a lot of burned out spots. Greens were pretty good. Nice pace of play given lack of groups in front.

Dependable

Silver Lake is a popular location, probably because it's in the middle of the pack in terms of cost and course conditions. It's not spectacular in any regard, but certainly isn't a goat farm either. Course difficulty is not brutal, but not a pushover either. Same with amenities & everything else that might influence your decision to play here.

Greens poor condition

North course is in good shape except for the greens very slow and beat up they need some TLC and to be rolled noone likes to play on very slow beat up greens. Also had to wait 10 passed our tee time for a cart that shouldn't ever happen rent some more carts to have available especially on very busy weekends.
