Another perfect day at Pottawatomi

I took my 13yr old son for a Sunday afternoon round and as always, the course was in great condition. The 3rd hole green was reopened after some renovation after the May flooding along the river, which was good to see. We did get stuck behind a 4-some of 20-somethings, out for the afternoon, but they let us play through. That did put us behind another 4-some with two moms and 2 pre-teens more intent on driving the carts then playing. My son and I weren't in a big hurry and the afternoon was BEAUTIFUL, so we just enjoyed the views and played when we could. We will certainly be playing the course again. Great layout, challenging holes, and scenic views. What else would you want for an afternoon with your son?!?

Pottawatomie on June 17,2020

One of the disappointing things about my round was that work was going on with several of the holes. The signature Hole No. 3 with the island green was reduced to an uninteresting hole with a temporary green while the island green was not in play. There was no reduction in green fees even though the entire course was not in play.

Fun and affordable

A great par 3 golf course with fantastic design for the price. Easy to walk and play, the course offers just enough challenge for experienced golfers and even a better experience for new golfers. Be aware that as it is a public park district course the pace of play is very inconsistent. It is common to get stuck behind slower groups but mostly it is a fair pace.

It’s design is gorgeous nestled on the Fox River with plenty of wildlife and gorgeous views. I play once a week and love it!

Play this course!

Barring a remodel on 3rd hole this course is truly top notch. For a 9 hole course you will use every club in your bag. Robert Trent Jones jewel.

Great 9 hloe layout

A beautiful course located right on the Fox River in St. Charles. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., it is an interesting mix of holes with water coming into play on 2 holes including an island green. Course is not overly long, but requires course management and shot making to score well. Overall a great value in a beautiful setting! Want to play 9? Highly recommend.
