HARRASED BY RANGER

This was the worst experience I have ever had at the public course in Deerfield. I brought my grandson there to spend the day playing golf with him. The ranger (overweight) approached us twice on the first hole and once on the second hole.
He would not leave us alone. My grandson got nervous and had trouble hitting the ball.
I told the ranger to leave us alone and he sent another ranger to bother us.
We finished play in 4 hours so we didn’t slow play.
It will be a long time before I go back .....if ever.
Also the bathroom in the clubhouse is closed so after you finish playing golf you can’t wash up!

Incompetence

Paired up with beginners and told to pick up on 9th hole. Told by ranger he was ordered to by Myles. We are frequent customers and this was stupid unnecessary and unacceptable. Myles no problem with slow play in the future as we will be playing elsewhere. Nice work Myles no more slow play.

Unexpected charge

Even though illinois mandates single carts if not riding with household members, they add on $5 per person if you ride alone.

Nice course, clueless marshal

played as twosome. Finished front 9. About to get on hole 10. A foursome comes out of 18 and cuts in front of us. Ok no big deal. We'll pass them, which they let us.

Some oldass marshal comes along, accusing us as if we didn't pay. Promptly explain to the marshal that we payed.

Then he tells us that we shouldn't have pass the group behind us and says we gotta follow the rules. Uhhh, we didn't break any rules u idiot.
Then the old guy stalks us until we get to 13 and says we should play each hole, which we have been doing.
Nice course, joke of a marshal that does zero crowd control (not to mention there was a five some playing on the course)

Deerfield

Course was great fun. The day started out windy and wet, but by the 4th hole it was hot, humid, and cloudy. The course was fair and long. We had a great time, with a nice pairing of a father-in-law with son-in-law.

Last minute Sunday round

I played here three years ago and the course is the same. It beat me up back then but not today.
There is a lot of water on the course and it rewards shot control. Some of the fairways are narrow and are better played with an iron or wood off the tee. I didn't pull out my driver until the par 4's got around 400 yards.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The $10 bucket of 50 balls on the range was a little pricy and there is no other option. All in all, a good day on a nice course.

Great course

Best public course in the northwest suburbs. Great layout and it is always in great condition. I’ve been playing here for years and they’ve taken out some bunkers and tree and made a little easier. Not sure why.
