Fun easy course for all levels

Atwood is very tranquil and peaceful course. Almost all of the holes are secluded and has alot of nature. Course is easier for the more advanced player but also has a handful of challenging holes. Staff is great and very courteous and friendly.

Are those bunkers ever going to be fixed???

One of the clubhouse attendants is not the friendliest, the rest are good. The bunkers are absolutely horrendous, it is the biggest down fall of this course. Greens are slow but it is what it is, even mid season not just early in the year. There are tons of rocks in the bunkers, if they just picked 10 a day out while racking them in the morning it would help over time. Even rake and place can be an issue.

Great course to play

Atwood is a long and challenging course. You have chances to see Turkey and deer during your round.

Very friendly staff

The greens are in great shape but some of the bunkers look more like rock quarry’s instead of sand traps. The best part of my round was dealing with Sandy J. who works in the clubhouse. Every time I’ve been there Sandy greets me with a smile. He is a fantastic example of great customer service.

always a great time here

Staff is always friendly and welcoming. Ranger promptly took care of getting us thru a slow foursome who had no clue they were holding up two twosomes and a single behind them. Course is always well kept. Nice player-friendly layout.

Nice natural scenery

Atwood is a well maintained course pretty easy open fairways. Only negative is sand traps need to have new sand put in them more like rock traps. Overall this course is fun to play (grip and rip) and has alot of turkeys on it and I don't mean people! :)

Boulders and weeds in the bunkers

We love Atwood s layout and interesting holes. We HATE how lousy the Forest Preserve is maintaining the beautiful course. I was lucky enough to avoid the sand until hole 17. This bunker is on the right side of green. My ball was laying amongst several large rocks and some weeds where I needed to stand. We play the ball down so when I swung my club smashed into a large rock and the ball richocheted off 3 rocks and into the tall grass behind the green. Result was a damaged club and a lost ball. Sad. This isn’t the only bad trap on the course.

Always pleasant.

Beautiful natural setting. Undulating greens can be difficult. Accommodating staff. Our twosome picked up another Golfnow user. We have been extremely lucky in being paired up with other Golfnow users. Not a jerk in all our groups.

Great public course

Atwood is a great course in the Rockford Park District. It is fairly open but still a challenging course with some long par 4s and 5s. We went off as a twosome and played through one foursome, then had no one in front of us. Completed 18 in 3.5 hours with a cart. An enjoyable day for golf!
