Course was in great condition.

Greens were in excellent condition, fast and very consistent throughout. Only criticism I have about the course is that the carts were expensive ($20 each player-$40 total)

Checking in problem

When checking in, the young man (probably summer temp.) told me that the cart was not included with my prepaid confirmation and that one would be provided at an additional charge. I told him that it was and after checking his computer he could not find any confirmation that it was. I offered to show him the confirmation on my phone at which time he reluctantly said that I could take a cart, but he acted as though I was taking advantage of the club. One of the other players in our group was a man whose name I believe is Ken, related to me at the end of the round that he too had received the same skeptical treatment from this young man and that he was made to pay an additional $25 for the use of a cart. I offered to accompany this man into the clubhouse to speak with the manager, but he declined my offer, stating that he would take it up with the booking organization. This is the only time that I have ever had any problem at any course while using your booking system.

Nice course but extra charge for cart

The GolfNow reservation showed that the cart was included but the pro shop worker acknowledged that even though the reservation lists the cart as included, it isn’t . So we had to pay extra $20 each.

We choose this course based on the rate relative to other courses but it turned out to be as much or more than nicer courses.

GolfNow needs to be more accurate about the fees.

Add $20/golfer for carts

Booked twosome for $33/golfer. I get there and it’s an additional $20/golfer for carts even if you ride in the same cart. I liked the course, but price was really deceptive. You think you’re paying $66 and it ends up being $106.

If you have all day...

Then Wilmette Golf Club is for you (at least on weekends). Walked off hole 13 because we were 3 and a half hours into the round and there we groups stacked up all over the place. Course (especially the greens) in very nice shape but the slow play just overruled continuing on.

Hold the breaks....

Course was okay, almost got drilled on 11 with no forewarning (yes, pun intended haha). Golf cart nearly stopped at every turn and told us to maneuver off the fairway. Felt like I was in drivers ed where the teacher gets to control the whip from the passenger seat. Friendly staff, moved at a fine, just unsure why they make us pay for carts when they rarely work.

Green are in great shape

Walked 18 holes on a Saturday at 2:40 for $31. Can't beat that. Course is in great condition and the pace of play is awesome. Greens are in a great condition and they are not slow.
