St. Andrews Golf & Country Club was originally built in 1926 as a rival to the Chicago County Club. Since then, the club has built its own reputation and stands out for its two championship golf courses and top-ranked practice center. The St. Andrews Course is the club's original layout before the Joe Jemsek Course was added in 1929. It is also the longer of the two golf courses. The club and course draw their name from the famous Scottish club known as the "home of golf," but the course is far from being a seaside links. Instead, the mostly flat layout weaves through mature trees. The golf course offers a challenge with tight, tree-lined doglegs and large, contoured greens framed with sand bunkers. It has a memorable finish with a par 4 that features a water hazard along the entire right side of the fairway.

Great greens

We were greeted by a friendly gentleman in the clubhouse that is her key and we were off to play in no time.
I would say the price of $27.50 for nine holes were a tad high in consideration with other golf courses in the area being a few dollars less but still not a bad price.
The carts were dried off and ready to go after a rainy night.
The greens we're in great condition along with the fairways especially with all the rain but it was not soggy good draining.
Pace of play was fantastic considering we got out there at 6:01 a.m. so needless to say we had nobody ahead of us.
For an older course and it course that is used in a lot four outings the keep it well maintained one of the best in the area.

One of the best golf courses

Saint Andrews

This is old school golf at its best , great staff ,condition always above average and the rates are great ! This is the way golf courses were meant to look ,tree lined large well manicured greens with huge green side bunkers. Love to play there and you will use every club in the bag . There are tees for every handicap. Level .from the pro shop to the starters and the rangers it’s the way it should be !

St. Andrews

Always a good course, but need to find a deal, as it is usually a little over priced. Pace of play was pretty bad, I think they can improve with that.

Consistently good

St. Andrews is a nice track and always in good shape. The fairways are nice and the. Greens run at a nice pace. With all this rain the bunkers are very wet on some holes. That’s the only issue.

Always Enjoyable

St. Andrews is one of the best managed golf courses in the area. Because of all the recent rain, it was in excellent shape. We got a great deal on Golfnow and really enjoyed our round. The only problem was that the threesome in front of us played slow and so it was a five hour round.

Just good golf experience.

Played the # 1 course and #2 course recently. Both always well maintained. Tess and fairways in great shape. They can make the greens as difficult as needed by controlling the speed. The staff is friendly and clubhouse has a great bar for after the round. You can’t go wrong here.

Great place to play golf!

St. Andrews in West Chicago is simply outstanding. The staff is wonderful and takes golf seriously. The practice facility is the best in the Chicagoland area.

The courses are challenging and well maintained.

The prices are reasonable.

I have taken many lessons at St. Andrews and they are the best at teaching the game of golf.

I highly recommend St. Andrews in West Chicago as solace to enjoy the game of golf. The

Great facilities

St Andrew's gives out an old school vibe with the manicured landscaping and state of the art practice facility. Staff is very good and patient. We played 36 holes had a great gush sandwich in between rounds. Daily green fees are rare but Joe Jemsek swore by them .
I have been playing here since 1982 and its has improved overtime.
