Thanks for your feedback. I invite you to contact me the next time you're at Joe Louis golf course so I can fully understand your concerns. The date you played because of heavy rain we were closed! Thanks again for your feedback. JC
Best value in Chicago land
Yes the fairways can be a little suspect. However typically the greens are as good as any public course, the layout is one of the best around great mix of holes. They value of this course is as good as any. I would put it right there with deer Creek in University Park. You can play JL for $22 with a cart and like $35 on the weekends you can't beat that.
Also this course has the best finishing hole around.
Great place to improve your golf game
The price is great for the course
The staff is very friendly
And they take good care of the course
Would much rather okay other courses in the area for the same price
No driving range. Small putting green. Terrible fairways with rock hard ground. Flat bedrock type "bunkers" pace of play want terrible but apparently we got lucky. Not recommended
Course needs help they are trying but still needs a lot of work..Building repairs needed all structures greens need to be updated.
There were two holes closed to due too much rain, but it would have bee nice to know there were only 16 holes available either at the time it was booked or before teeing off. The staff said nothing. I understand bad weather conditions but I don’t think that’s acceptable.
The staff here are very friendly but the public that play here are terrible with golf etiquette. The course fairways are not in the best shape but the greens are well taken care of. Overall I will NOT play here again.
We had 12:07 tee time and when we got to the course, we were informed that there were over TEN groups (not an exaggeration) in front of us waiting for carts. We offered to tee off and walk. They said that was not allowed and that we would have to wait until all of the groups before us went off.
The backup was supposedly due to slow play, but the ranger was sitting in his cart on the first tee the entire time.
I will definitely never come back.
Slow and singled out
Course was fair condition and multiple fairways that had water retention. My group was a foursome and a twosome we played scramble and kept our pace of play up. We were singled out by the rangers and were hit up on when we were actually waiting on a twosome and sixsome ahead of us. We actually had to scold the group behind to not hit on us while we were on the greens. This course will probably be best played on a slow weekday.
Finally making needed repairs to course huge upgrade on the sand traps.What is really needed is a marshal to many groups of 2 playing 4 1/2 hours in March for 18.
This course plays 30 minutes per hole. We had to wait for a golf cart as they were out when starting. Golfers on this course tend to be very loud and not respect golf etiquette. There is no course marshal watching pace of play or beer/drink cart. The bathrooms have no locks, stall doors & bugs. The course layout lends to others hitting at you and on other hole fairways as the setup is awful. The sand traps are rock pits, not sand traps. This is way over priced for the course & I would never recommend playing here.
How do you have a shortage of carts?!?!
So i have sworn off Joe Lewis but I thought I would give it another chance. I probably wont play there again which is unfortunate because i love the course. For the second time at this course we walked up and there are at least 5 groups on the tee box. Reason being is there are not enough golf carts! This causes heavy back up. The course is managed very poorly and seems like tee times are booked in 5 minute intervals. The course is kept up much better than in years past and I love the layout but be ready to play a 6 hour round if you choose to play.
