First time thumbs up!

Really enjoyed my first time here. Course was in great shape. Greens were very fast and I enjoyed that immensely. Tough pin positions but I think they are all on this course. Look forward to playing it again after seeing it one time.

Good conditions, decent pace of play

I like the course chip and bunker practice area. Course layout is interesting and fair. The conditions of the course are in good condition and the course is maintained very well. Course Management had the last 4 holes as cart path only and all other holes as 90 degree crossings. The Player Assistant was visible on the course to oversee that players followed the rules, but not in an obtrusive way. Still the pace of play was decent. Players were never backed up and hardly ever saw the groups in front or behind us.

Quaint Park Course

There is nothing flashy or dramatic about this course but much like the customer service and staff friendliness the little things go a very long way. It's a fun course with some legs and hills, narrow shoots off the tee and does call for a fair number of shots. Fairways and greens were well manicured, not all that fast but not upsettingly slow either. There were more walkers and women than I've seen on any course on the weekend and I think that says a lot about the hospitality of the course. The staff is really friendly and informative for the visitor and the locals we were paired up with were extremely friendly and welcoming as well. I would highly recommend this course to anyone but if you're someone new to the game, a higher handicap and/or just feel uncomfortable at other course, this place should be on your list.

Great Value

Played on a Friday afternoon when surrounding courses were booked up. Course wasn’t crowded at all, and not sure why. Excellent course layout with uniqueness. Greens in good shape and challenging. Staff very friendly. Will return.

Great Course

Great layout, wide and narrow fairways, decent amount of hazard to challenge any golfer. Had to use every club in the bag. Really enjoyed playing here will definitely come back a lot more.

Good course. In great shape

Course was in great shape. Greens were fast but soft and fairways were well kept. Pace of play was good even with a few walkers in front of us. Like most courses in the Chicagoland area the course is short. Would play again and would recommend trying it out.
