Course in poor condition
I have played this course in the past and have been very pleased with my experience. However, today the course was in very bad conditions. Carts should not be allowed on the fairways as they were extremely wet. The greens were in very bad shape as well. Need to attend to them as well.
Very challenging course
The course is very challenging. Doesnt drain very well otherwise one of the best values in Lake County!!
Great layout, tough course
Great layout, bent grass tee to green, mostly winds through residential developments. Extremely challenging, lots of water, great 18th hole. Could definitely add a “hybrid” tee between red and white tees, would reduce carry difficulty on some holes by players that do not hit the ball far.
Course conditions have gone downhill since new management has taken over
Course is challenging as water and hazards come into play on many holes.
There were few players on the course due to perceived weather conditions and pace of play was outstanding. The only drawback was there were some wet conditions but the greens and fairways were in excellent shape. Austin in the Pro Shop was great,
All positive, except for bunkers
The courses was in very good condition. The tee boxes were good except for one or two, the fairways were good and the greens rolled very smoothly. The only real issue and I mean it was a BIG issue were the bunkers. The bunkers were full of rocks, some the size of golf balls. I’m thankful I did not hit into any bunkers but my partners couldn’t say the same. One wedge was damaged due to a rock. The staff should commit to several days of cleaning up the bunkers.
Terrible unmanaged course
My family arrived at 3pm for a 3:30pm Sunday tee time. We were told we could go out at any time as the starter had already left.
There was no ranger on the course. There we two separate groups with 6 golfers in each group and one with 5 ahead of us. They did not seem to care about pace of play and with nobody left to manage the course it was taking 20 mins to golf one hole.
We kept skipping holes only to run into another oversized groups. Others normal size groups began jumping holes causing confusion on who was playing what hole.
Also there were no yardage markers making it impossible to tell how far out you were. There was goose crap EVERYWHERE and the course was in awful shape
Avoid this course like the plague.
my Grandmother before she died used to tell me if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all ... but I will say this I’ve lived on this course for over two decades and I couldn’t even begin to count how many times I’ve played it. I know the course literally like the back of my hand with my eyes closed at night. Not completely stoked about the way I was treated tbh
Midlane, much improved.
Our traveling league (20 seniors) played Midlane last week. We had played the course last year in July and found it not in the best of shape. On our recent visit it had rained heavily the previous afternoon so the course was wet but not unplayable. The course was in much better shape this year.
The staff was friendly and helpful. It is a challenging but fair layout at a very reasonable price. We will be back.
Challenging but fair
Lots of water hazards
Great staff especially cart girl!
Midlane is always a great course, the staff is always friendly the rates are good. The course was in good shape after all the rain we have had. It's always a pleasure to play Midlane.
Poorly conditioned course.
I really liked Midlane in the past. I had played on a permanent tee time and had a membership there for 5 years. I left for Thunderhawk years ago but I come back to play this course 1-2 times per year. I was really surprised how poorly maintained this course was on Memorial Day weekend - a time when courses should be showing themselves off. Not one bunker was raked by the grounds crew, greens were not cut and much slower than other years. There were an incredible amount of weeds growing in the rough, an obvious sign of lack of upkeep. The management also let customers drive carts everywhere and during this rainy period of weather, the carts have ripped this course up a lot. My guess is that ownership is not doing well with the course or it’s hotel and banquet facilities and they just aren’t putting the money into it for the upkeep. I have always liked the layout and if the deal wasn’t good, I would not play here for full price. Sheppard,s Crook or Thunder Hawk are much better.
We appreciate you taking the time to leave us with 3 stars. We always strive for a 5 star experience, so all of your feedback is appreciated. Please feel free to contact the club directly if you feel that there are specifics we can improve on. We hope to have you back at the course in the future.
One of the Best Hidden Gems in Chicagoland
What more do you want? 140 slope from the tips, forced carries, small greens, wind, light rain, and low 50’s weather. Glorious.
Still great value
I’ve played Midlane a bunch and still love popping up from the north suburbs. While the course definitely could use some improved maintenance, particularly around tee boxes and the practice area, this track is challenging, interesting, and fun.
