Odyssey Golf Course
Odyssey Country Club is a challenging layout that was designed by Harry Bower and two-time U.S. Open winner Curtis Strange. Strange won in 1988 and 1989, putting him in the company of only six others in the century-long history of the U.S. Open. His influence is apparent in all the strategic elements of the golf course as well as the risk-reward options. This demanding layout is not exactly beginner friendly. Staying on the fairways is crucial or your ball will be met with deep rough. Water is also a prominent presence on the golf course. Twelve holes either feature a water hazards or play along the water's edge. Odyssey Country Club's 16th hole is memorable for its tricky island green, which naturally draws comparisons to the famous 17th at TPC Sawgrass.

In great shape for this time of year. Especially with the recent rain. Great to get in another round before winter at a local course.
Great fall round
Course was a little wet from recent rains. Greens were in great shape and rolled true. Great rate on Golf Now.
Odyssey Country Club
Course was extremely wert due to the rain, so we had to follow the golf cart path. Took 5 hours but was due to the wet conditions. We loved the course and want to play again, just not when it is wet. Staff was super friendly and gave me the $25 senior rate vs. $35 we booked it at.
PLAY THIS COURSE
Played here for the first time on Friday afternoon 9-20-19
Friendly staff, BEAUTIFUL property. Course was in great shape. Greens were quick but not crazy and rolled pretty true!
Some very cool holes on this course.
Odyssey Country Club - Greens always smooth
I always enjoy this course. The greens are always in great shape. The course has its challenges with some blind shots on some holes if you are not positioned well off the tee and therefore you cannot see the greens and there are trees, etc that can block you as well. The fairways are fine and it is a pleasant place to play.
Great course. Every thing was good except for the driving range. Charging different rates for matts vs grass is ridiculous Range balls are the worse. How about getting new range balls.
They have made some.improvement it stil need for the rough to be cut down more You can easily lose you ball in the rough..overall THE Course and lay out is okay.
This course is going down hill fast. Used to be good. Now.....if ball isn't in fairway, takes you forever to find it. Rough 3-5”, clover throughout rough. Only two holes rough was cut, I understand we had a lot of rain, but its been 100 with humidity for 3-4 days. No excuse the rough couldn’t be cut. Lost about 7 balls that were anywhere from 5-10 off fairway, other guy I was playing with lost about the same. Walking around the rough looking for ball complete joke. Grass wasn’t even wet, and we teed off in afternoon and yet they couldnt cut grass in the morning? Late morning? Noon?
It's a usta was....
This course usta be a good track. The fairways and ruff are loaded with weeds. The sand traps haven't been racked or groomed. Some of the greens were ok, but the majority of the greens were in poor condition. The course must hold an extraordinary amount of water as the fairways were yellowish green in color and extremely mushy. The primary ruff was at least 3 inches and the secondary ruff was 4-5 inches making almost impossible to find your ball.
Don’t waste your time - but if you do bring 20+ balls
I know Illinois has had a tough May with the rain, but I honestly don’t think the rough has been mowed in weeks. If you did not hit the ball on the fairway or green, good luck finding your ball. The “rough” is incredibly thick, finding your ball is nearly impossible because it gets buried . Probably went through 10-15 balls today and that is not anything OB or in water, just in the rough. Because of this, the pace of play was terrible, not to any golfers fault - no one could find their ball. The course was 90 degrees on the fairways, and there was some wet areas which is completely understandable, but the lack of mowing for the entire course was incredible. Also of note there was a wedding going on just off the 9th green, and a concert playing in the background - don’t recommend going on a Friday.
If you get a deal to play here - make sure you tack on another $20-30 in balls that you will inevitably go through.
The course has a nice layout and is challenging. However, the rough and fairways are overgrown. There are tall weeds growing out of the fairways. If the ball goes into the rough it is nearly impossible to find your ball. It is a nice course just needs to be better maintained.
Course layout is great. But the condition is terrible. Used to be great but the owners aren’t more interested In weddings then the course. Some rangers and a cart girl would be good. Half way house closed. Overall not a good experience.
Great layout, terrible condition
This course has a great layout but the conditions are always terrible. It naturally drains poorly but there is no reason for the rough to be so awfully maintained. Every year I hope it will be in better shape and every year I'm disappointed.
COURSE IS HORRIBLE . WET AND DOES NOT DRAIN WELL
NEVER AGAIN UNLESS WE DONT HAVE RAIN FOR SEVERAL WEEKS
Odyssey - Course in great shape this spring
The course was in the best condition since I have golfed here the past few years. The greens and fairways were fabulous. Great job by the course staff!
I have known.
So it was a perfect Saturday weather wise. I decided at the last minute that I would like to get out on the course. Went on my Golf Now app and noticed every course was pretty booked up. Then I came across Odyssey where the entire afternoon was free. I thought this was odd so I checked out their reviews. They were horrible but I decided to hook anyways. Big mistake. The course condition was just so bad. It had not rain in 2 weeks yet it was still mushy. Mowed grass was left right there on the fairway. Goose crap everywhere. The worst was the rude cranky old man working the pro shop. I have never been so happy to leave a golf course.
