The course was wet after heavy rains but was playable. Greens were recently aerated so a little bumpy, it's that time of year.
Sunday Golf Round with Father
Today I was able to play a round of Golf with my father at 12:29 PM. It overall was an enjoyable day out on the course. The staff were nice and professional. I was noticed as Tiger because of my golf attire. Greens were good. I would definitely come back again to play a round of golf at this course.
Maintenance Crew Day
Fox Bend is really nice track. Today was unbelievably slow. The maintenance crews were allowed to play and they weren’t golfers. Everyone on the course was frustrated to no end. I’ll still go back but beware of too low of a rate. It’s too good to be true 23$
slow Pace of play
It took 3 hours to play front 9 and wasn’t going any better on the back 9. Had to leave after 12th hole when we should have been done with 18.
Couple of years ago we played 18 in 4 hours 15 min. And got yelled out for being slow. Now I guess 6 hour rounds are acceptable.
Longest round ever.
Pace of play was so slow, I wouldn't go back if they paid me to play there.
I'm a 19-20 handicap. Shot 89 and enjoyed the course. Greens could be faster, but fairways were in good condition. Loved the layout for a muni course.
Nice track for the money
Its in great shape and the staff is always friendly.
Good round. There were other two-somes and I wish they had let us be a two-some because the two people we played with were very slow and people kept playing through.
Just OK Used to be better
Used to have a permanent tee time here years ago. The course was in better shape back then. There were lots of places that were burnt out and not watered. The sand traps were an absolute joke. Totally inconsistent. One trap would have excessive sand and the next would hardly have any at all. The quality of the sand was very poor. Very similar to place and you would buy at your local hardware store. The greens were soft enough to be receptive, but littered with ball marks and damage from idiots who don't know how to pick up there spikes on the greens.
The fairways were in excellent shape. The greens were true but slower than I like. The roughs are a bit too long. Lost a couple balls just a couple feet off the fairway. Cutting the rough down a couple inches would make a big difference. Liked the creativity of many of the holes. Makes you think and use good course management. I like that! Some of the tee boxes could have used a little work but overall were good.
Decent muni course. A bit overpriced. Mostly flat and tree lined. Water stations every 3rd hole, bev cart service. Pro shop has some equipment.
Full service restaurant.
Tee box, fairways and bunkers in good shape.
Greens are a bit slow.
Creek winds through course and comes into play on several holes. Par 3 and 4 holes lack variation.
This course is always well maintained except after heavy rain. Not much fun for high handicap players. Friendly / professional staff
Don’t go here. The staff is rude and the tee times are worthless. We waited 40 minutes before they told us another group was up before us. I decided not to play and went somewhere close that was perfect. They lost a great customer today. Hope their pride was worth it.
course in great shape after plenty of rain,good job guys.seem to be getting rushed even though we,4 seriors ,played front in under 4 hours,so we let group play though.after went for best $6 burger and fries,staff was supper great,and friendly,loved it.
That rough though and pricey!
Rough=just missed the fairway. I'm telling you it was at least 7inches and looked freshly cut. Had to be my worst experience missing the fairway by 3 inches. Please trim it down! There's a restaurant/ bar attached which seemed pretty nice. Don't be expect a hotdog or brat though if you tee off in the early morning. It's your typical park district ran course except for the $61 price per round. Heritage Bluffs is way nicer and only 5 minutes away and they charge $70 a round. Layout was cool, greens were tight off and on. Each green played different from the next. One hole don't remember which, maybe 7th or 8th had this large fan oscillating left to right. I was like hey that's cool considering it was about 100 degrees on father's day. Until I stepped onto the green. It felt as if I was walking on 6inch plush carpet? Weird! All in all it's definitely a challenging course for sure. Just make sure you hit your fairways!!! Oh and my last piece of advice. Make sure you open the men's room door slowly or you'll hit someone washing their hands! Lol
This course has potential
The greens are terrible to putt on...very slow...so you cant properly read them...they dont break as much as they look, the ball bounces literaly back and forth to the hole...as big as these greens are they should be much faster...to many long two putts because its not natural to hit a putt so hard....the time and effort to create great greens would be well worth it on this course because its a good layout... it dosnt have to be 11 on the stemp to be great to putt on...but these greens are terrible...and save the excuses...not interested...
