I met the new Operations Manager, Austin. Seems like a really good guy. The previous head Pro, Mike Chappel is no longer there.

Course was in good shape for the winter we have had. Greens were excellent. This course is a gem. Lots of water, but beautiful and challenging. Enjoy your round. Be sure,to replace divot marks on greens and hurry up to keep pace of play moving. Looking forward to see what new owners will be doing to clubhouse, course, etc.

Nice course, BUT when I called to check to see if they might be aerating they didn't mention the course is still experiencing severe water damage from a couple of months ago. 2 holes were roped off to make way for re-seeding. They should have mentioned this. There also were several other holes under stress.

The front nine is still a mess from the heavy rain in June. We got a great price, but anybody who has paid full price to play with the poor conditions of the front nine deserves a refund.

Midlane is a bit of a hike but well worth it. Great holes shooting over water, some tough bunker play, a few doglegs in for good measure. Fair but challenging course. Reason for not 5 start is a few holes have suffered some because of the rains.. Whites at 6100 yds. Well worth the $39. Cheers!

Before I booked my tee time, I read some reviews from July 2017 (right after heavy rain) saying that a few holes were totally under water. Since I was playing in September and it has been relatively dry, I called the course to find out it's condition. The guy I spoke with in the pro shop told me the course was back in the same shape that it was before the July storms. But when I arrived, 4 holes were temporary, shortened holes, with insufficient yardage markers. It felt a bit like a bait and switch.

Everything else about my experience was positive. The "permanent" holes were in great shape and the greens were in nice shape. Nice pace of play. The staff was very friendly,.

Staff is very friendly and the layout of the course provides ample challenge for golfers of all levels. The greens are very smooth and were running very true. I'll be returning yet again as I've now played the course a handful of times. I would highly recommend this course to anyone in the Chicagoland area - about 50 minutes from downtown Chicago.

I've been playing Midlane for few years now. Thr course was in immaculate condition and the best greens around. The greens were smooth as glass and running 11 to 12 every time I've played it. Unfortunately midlane had terrible luck and the rain storm few weeks ago damaged 6 & 7th hole. Even with these damage, they worked hard to get the course to playing condition! I don't understand the bad reviews from some of the reviews! They fore warn everyone about the condition, and for them to leave a bad review is pretty unfair! Mike the head pro is working deligently to get the damaged holes repaired for play. Let's come out and support Midlane, it will be spectacular again!

This course has always been in great shape until after this years flooding. The front nine was like playing on the moon. Not much grass left. The play was great because of this. Staff did start people on the back nine right in front of us.

Unfortunately this course was flooded out 2 weeks ago. Dead fish everywhere and it was 88 degrees - not pretty.

Will try it again when they redo the closed 6th and 7th hole and get rid of the stench.

We had a great round. Two couples, higher handicap golfers. First time on the course. Men played from the white tees. Found the course to be fair and challenging. Greens were quick and rolled true. Hole #5 deserves its #1 handicap rating. A great value ($34 each through Golf Now). Would definetly return and play again.
