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.

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.

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.

This was the first time I played this course. I took my 8 ur old grandson, it was his first round on a real golf course.

This course is perfect for new golfers ( kids or adults) or if you want to work on your short game. There is water and traps which all come into play! Greens were slow but rolled pretty true. Will definitely come back to play it. Don't expect to play too quick as it is short and you have to wait for group ahead to leave the green. Expect to find kids and beginners ! Loved the course.

There were lots of geese and their stuff. Some of our balls hit those fresh stuff.

Fun little course. We finished the round in an hour and five minutes. Not much of a pro shop or amenities, but that is not what I go there for to begin with.

I play this course weekly with my 14 year old son who just started golfing with me last year. greens are really good (a few very tricky ones!). only takes an hour to round. only negative is the ton of goose "stuff" on the first 3 holes. Staff is really great, very friendly! We LOVE this little course!!!
