St. Andrews Golf & Country Club - Saint Andrews Course
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.

I am 75yrs.old and have been playing st.andrews since the70's.The courses are fine for all levels of players.This review has to do with the pandemic.If I was an activist I would file a discrimination complaint against the club.Now that two riders per cart are allowed I am forced to pay $5 extra to ride alone.Senior rates have already been cancelled.I can ride with a stranger and wear a mask for the entire round and pay $5 less.However,I suffer from a disease that weakens my immune system,so any chance of exposure to the virus is unacceptable.In effect,I am being penalized for having this condition.Also,I played at 7:10 in the morning and there was no one else around,but I was still charged the extra fee.This just seems wrong to me.

7 people played together in front of us. Must be warned and prohibited .
Very enjoyable public course
I've played no. 1 today, but have played both courses in the past. It's a good public courses and, given the price, the best on the area. Not particularly challenging. Water only comes onto play on 18, which is a favorite hole of mine. Longer par 3s. Nice fairways, and the greens can be challenging. I finished the round in just over 4 hours, but there was a backup starting on the 6th hole and for the rest of play. Overall very enjoyable. Nd the staff is very friendly and accomidating. I'll be back this year.
Played this course yesterday. It is no pushover. Nice layout—some lengthy holes—nicely conditioned—very difficult greens in great shape and quick. All in all an enjoyable experience—especially for the money.
No rangers in sight
Arrived at 1230 for my tee time at 1250. Was told by the starter to keep pace with the group in front of you. Which we did all day. Except that 2 groups in front of us decided not too. By the time we got to the 6th hole they were already a whole hole behind. By the time we got to 12 they were 2 holes behind. Not once did a ranger come by and tell them to play faster or skip a hole. By the time we were on 16 they were 3 holes behind. Needless to say we ended up playing over 5 hours. What a joke. WHERE ARE THE RANGERS !!!! WONT BE COMING BACK ANYTIME SOON. THANKS FOR TELLING US TO KEEP PACE ST ANDREW'S
I played St Andrews course and it was challenging but great! The course was very well maintained even with the downpour we had over the weekend. The staff was very friendly and nice. Will definitely be playing here again, although may wait till carts are available because it is very challenging to walk 18 holes. Ended up coming out to be about 7 miles of walking.
Good practice facilities
I played this course during the Covid-19 restrictions, so the pace of play was no issue. In the past, I remember some long rounds on the weekends. Overall the course was in great shape and the greens were challenging on several holes. For the price paid ($41), I would definitely go bak.
Always driven by St.Andrews, but never played it. Course was beautiful and challenging. Loved the layout and the maintenance of the course was fantastic. Will definitely play here again.
Good course to walk
This course is relatively flat so it's a good course to walk. The course was in great shape in my opinion. There are two 18 hole courses here and the St.Andrews course is my favorite of the two.
Staff did a great job explaining distancing procedures. Loved the spacing and no issues with touch points. Would be best if pool noodles all same height in the hole. Glad to see all the Beautiful Trees!
Good Shape and Pace
Scorecards were set out and no physical interaction. Course was in good shape we walked and finished in 3 hours 15 minutes
Couldn’t pass on the deal through GolfNow
Never played this course. Ended up playing on a beautiful day, greens were rolling very very well, course is challenging and well kept. No two holes felt similar. Great day of golf and one of my new favorites.
