Needs a ranger and starter

course needs a ranger and starter it's a free-for-all they should give some free golf to some people to work there there is never a starter people go off as a single as a Twosone as whatever they want always backs up on 7th hole and on about the 14th hole and each 9 only course I know that has no starter or Ranger sad problem easy fix

I am Spoiled

Redwood is a good track for a new be or if you want to get out and walk a Golf Course. Many do there and I’ll assume it’s due to the price and well, some like to walk. I’ve been lucky enough to play some of the best Gold Courses up in the Northern area so while not to bash the gold course I am more so just giving a heads up to golfers out there that use to playing much better tracks. Renwoods fairways are half fairway and the other half just grass on most of the holes . We missed hole seven because on the front 9 the layout is crazy up and down with some holes starting at odd places . Greens we pretty decent but the layout on some of the holes where completely just stupid dumb . Some made no sense whatsoever. For $8 more Bonnie Brook blows it away .

Friendly and

For some strange reason I keep coming back to play Renwood with friends and we've always had a great time playing and want to come back. I believe it all starts with the friendliness and accommodations of the staff that makes it inviting. We plan to schedule more play time until weather tells us otherwise. Go check it out, it will worth you every $$$. Cheers!

I enjoyed playing this course, wish it didn’t rain before, still was great to play, like to play there again when it’s not wet. Challenging enough for me.

Pleasant Surprise Awaits You.

Having played Renwood for the 3rd time this very short season is an indication that it is worth every penny . It challenges and also provide a round of fun with friends or family. Go check it out and you'll see and experience what I just told. Now GO PLAY!

Needs a ranger

course needs a ranger especially on the weekends For the Weekend Warriors we caught two guys thought they'd let usplay through and we're waiting to instead they hit about 3/4 balls off the tee all of them in the woods then they were looking for ever for their balls they parked their cartalmost on the green at every hole fyi do not be like these guys park your cart as close to the next whole as possible to keep speed going a play so the guys behind you don't have to wait every time for you to go to it and drive across on the last hole they park the cart in the Tee Box I think they thought they've been doing what they wanted on the on the other holes Why Stop Now NO golf etiquette bu t it's the Rangers job to keep people like this in line and playing at the speed or allow people to play through they were about three holes with nobody in front of them never saw a ranger I don't believe the course has one

Solid park district course

$45 for two guys and cart. Great deal. Front nine is pretty basic, but back nine is a lot more fun. Course is in great shape.

We had a slow group in front of us and still finished our foursome in 3.5.

Nice short course

We moved to Grayslake late last year, so I'm just discovering courses in this area and this is the first time I played Renwood after hearing about it from some other players earlier this year. It was friggin' hot, so I only wanted to play 9 holes and this is about the only course close by where I could reserve 9 holes someplace that wasn't an executive/par-3 course. Granted, the course is not long but I felt it was in pretty good shape and I played in just under 2 hours on the Sunday mid-morning of a holiday weekend; which was a pleasant surprise. Pace was good. Greens and tees were in good shape. Some of the fairways had what looked like floodoing or water damage from earlier in the year, but was being addressed.

Great staff and price

Nice course easy front nine harder Back Nine I like the box to hold the broken tees by tee box very good covid protection large plexiglass up and do not give you any paperwork the only thing I recommend is not to combine the white and blue tee boxes I play the whites and my son plays the blues it is more enjoyable when they are separate and further back it's not very long so make it harder for those who want to play the blues
