Great Nine Hole Course in the Chicago NW Burbs!

Want to play golf in the NW Chicagoland area, but have little time? Check out Walnut Greens. It’s a nice “chip & put course” that lets you work on your short to mid irons and putting. It’s well maintained, with a friendly staff.

Perfect weather

Good value but watch out for the mess.

This course is a good value for the money, I was able to play for $5. I walked and had my own pull cart, so for less than the cost of a couple golf balls I got to enjoy a beautiful golfing stroll through the park. The number one problem with this course is the goose droppings everywhere. Other than that its a nice short course that can help you get over your fear of the water hazard. If you are a hacker like me, be sure to bring a bunch of throwaway golf balls for the first half of the course. Other than the geese-dookie it was a fun round to work on my short game. The greens were pretty nice and very readable. I had a handful single putts from about 10 to 15 feet so that was nice.

Poop

I know it's not the courses fault but I have never seen so much goose poop in one location in my entire life. I will admit I'm not familiar with the migration habits of these birds so it could just be the time of year but the amount of poop was remarkable. Otherwise it would be a fun little par three course.
