Cantigny Golf - Hillside/Woodside
Cantigny Golf boasts 27 holes of scenic and challenging golf. The holes are divided into three nines that are named after the features of the landscape: Lakeside, Hillside, and Woodside. The nines are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Hillside/Woodside course features plenty of elevation changes as well as an abundance of hardwoods, mature oaks, and ash trees. More than 100,000 flowers provide a colorful accent to the golf course. Strategically placed bunkers border the undulating greens and there are also a few water hazards coming into play. All three courses provide a challenging round but they are playable for a range of skill levels. It is an excellent place for tournaments. In the past it has been host to the US Amateur Public Links and numerous USGA qualifiers. It is also a good place for juniors with a golf academy and a nine-hole youth links golf course.

My first time playing this course and was it worth the wait. I think they had their club championship before my round. If that wasn’t the case, the pin placements were in places that would make you think the superintendent was angry off or something. LOL The greens were hard and rolled beautifully. I would have to say it’s one of the best greens I’ve played on.
Great course but poor pace of play
Cantigny is one of the premier courses in the Chicago area and I was excited to play. The starter, Lynn, was very friendly. Unfortunately, a 4 hour 45 round took much away from the round and the golf experience. Waiting on every shot and waiting at each tee box disrupted the round. Never saw a ranger.
Never get to finish
I’ve played this course many times and only finished twice. The pace of play is always remarkably slow. Today was an exceptionally slow one (relative to many others in the past). After 3 holes, I was done. The staff was very accommodating with a rain check.
Just know that on weekends, you might be in for a 5hr+ round.
The course was in great shape and the greens were the best greens I played this year.
The course has some very challenging holes.
The staff was very friendly.
Not enough bang for your buck
I never get a wow effect when playing this course. $120.00 to play... personally I think they are a $75.00 golf course tops... several other courses in the area charging way less with better or same course conditions... I'd take my money down the road to Arrowhead or Schaumburg Golf Club before giving these guys $120.00 again... course was over watered, mud balls all day... bunkers are below average... greens shaggy and slow... they need to verdicut and groom the greens.
very nice layout but it ends there for me...
Beautiful course, great staff!!
We dont play here very often as price is high when 2 people play frequently. The staff is super friendly, amenities are nice (even though didnt take much advantage due to COVID 19), pro shop has nice quality merchandise. Will play again.
I love this place
What a gorgeous piece of land. Conditions were fantastic. This place has tons of staff comprised mostly of high school kids. Everyone one of them was cheery and eager to help. Also, one of the few courses that actually monitors pace of play which I deeply appreciate. I will return often!
Beautiful course - pace of play - terrible
The course was beautiful And in fantastic condition, and the staff super friendly. It took us nearly 3 hrs for 9 holes - lots of standing around and waiting. We gave up playing after the 14th because it was getting dark and the mosquitos were starting to eat us ! . The staff did say they had held an event in the morning and that slowed things up. They didn’t want to hurry the event because they had paid a lot of money and they want them to come back next year. We got a good price for the golf off GolfNow so weren’t too upset about it - but if we had paid full price, we wouldn’t have been very happy. On a good note we would love to play this course again and maybe choose an earlier time of day if possible.
Everyone there was extremely helpful and friendly
Especially the young lady and and starter sending off at your first tee. Will be back again soon for sure... thanks for a wonderful golf day.
