Fun course

Had a blast playing the course for the first time. Challenging in parts. Only complaint was around the greens as they just aerated them, and they were hard to putt the reads. Overall great place to play golf, and it was very scenic too.

Solid North Shore Choice

I played Winnetka Golf Club Monday. It was a pleasant surprise. Although there were some areas that were beat up...and a couple of greens in tough condition....overall it was a really enjoyable round! Easily walked, and plenty of sand and water to provide difficulty. I would definitely come back again!

Good Course, Bad Service

Winnetka is a good course that you have to know in order to score well. Driver is necessary only 4 holes. There are some tight landing spots on tee shots. You have to know where to hit your tee shot...if you hit through some fairways you will end up in the water.

I like the course but am disappointed in the service. I originally made a time for 4 people and was charged for 4.
However I ended up having to change it to 3. When I checked in they did say they had me down for 3 people. A week later my card was not yet credited for the switch from 4 to 3. I asked Golf Now to help. They got in touch with the course, and the course said I checked in with 4 people which is not true. At this point it is my word against theirs and I have no way to prove I ahd 3 people and not 4. It is very disappointing that I had to pay for a person who did not play.

This is a $20 course

Staff was rude and course conditions were poor. This place is worth more that $20. Their rates are not in line with what you are getting. Better value in the area elsewhere.
