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.

Always great

This is one of the best courses around. Even early in the season it it in great shape all around beacuse it drains well. For the money it’s a great value. Even as a single they had no problem just letting me go out there and play. No trying to pair me up which can be a drag as I was trying to work through early season stuff.

Fun course with challenging greens

St. Andrews courses are fun parkland-style courses, that are generally very weather-resistant. Even though it rained heavily the day before, we were still able drive carts throughout. The green complexes are challenging, and constitute the defense of the otherwise fairly benign layouts, making St. Andrews a great place to work off early season rust.. The staff and banquet facilities are very nice, the food is great, and the practice facilities are among the best in all Chicagoland.

All year round

St Andrews Course (#1) was in great shape. Pace of play was off because of morning frost delay. Pace did pick up as per usual. Id recommend this course any time of year. Nicest staff!

Finishing holes are a challenge

Played this course for the 5th time this year. It was in excellent condition. Only problem I had was that I had made the golfnow reservation for their other course, only to find out at the proshop that the other course was closed for maintenance.

Time to Mow

While this is one of our go-to weekend courses, we've grown a bit weary of a few things. 1)the rough has been consistently too long and yesterday was no exception. We watched a number of golfers spend too much time looking for their balls and this just makes for an unnecessarily long round. 2)yesterday, the fairway grass was also really just too long. 3)pace of play suffers here. The only hole we did not wait on was #1 it was backed up from #2 on. I'll go back, and hopeful feedback like this is taken into consideration by grounds management and rangers.

#16

I never complain about pin placement on a muni course considering I'm far from a pro. I am a 11 handicap though and so I normally make it through around keeping proper score. #16 pin placement on Thursday morning was just plain ludicrous and the people cutting the lawn that never play golf should be trained on proper pin placement or just leave it to the head greenskeeper. The part of the green where this flag run literally had the ball rolling back at your feet regardless of the speed of the putt. and there was no bail out. once again I never complain but this one was plain stupid.

Classic golf course with Medium Speed greens

St. Andrew's is an excellent suburban Chicago facility with two courses. Going out at 6 am the pace of play was excellent. Course is in good shape and greens are decent. Medium speed greens that I personally would like to see a bit faster but in overall great shape. The greens hold well but some are large enough that it's a high focused two putt. Length is average and it does have some trees but isn't too tight. The bar, restaurant, etc. Is best in area. I am only here to golf but the facilities which are excellent should be mentioned. Definitely will be back and recommend!

St. Andrews #1 Course

The staff was very friendly. The pace of play was outstanding for a Sunday 10:47 tee time. We finished in 3 hours &35 minutes. The course was in good shape. The practice putting green was very fast. The Greens on the course, not so much. Had some 3 putts getting fooled by the speed. Would recommend this course.
