Crystal Woods Golf Club
Crystal Woods Golf Club dates back to the 1950s when it was opened as a nine-hole, par-37 course called Bit O’ Heather Golf Club, which it was known as until 1967 when the course was renamed and completely redesigned, which included the addition of another nine. The par-72 course that exists today tumbles across a variety of elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic. The golf course is mostly wide open, putting it at the mercy of the prevailing winds. On particularly blustery days, Crystal Woods Golf Club is quite demanding. The 12th is the course’s signature and it even has a reputation for being the most difficult hole in McHenry County. It’s tempting to be distracted by the beautiful view from the elevated tee but this tough hole requires your full attention. The double-tiered green rises dramatically from front to back, often demanding three or more putts.

We decided to play here since we haven’t before and it was just ok, pace was super slow so for the drive time and how slow it was for sure not going back.
Course in great shape not many divots,pace was excellent could not catch up to 3 in front of us no one behind us most of day. Very courteous staff makes me want to be a member.
Pretty nice, challenging course.
Nice course and in pretty good condition. Good layout. Challenging but not too challenging. Paid $40 which I feel is a little high for this course. Staff was very nice, helpful and accommodating. Gas carts are in great shape.
Pace of play declined 3 holes in after a foursome held us up so we skipped a hole and everything went smooth , course was in great shape !!!
Nice challenging course will return
The staff was great, helpful and worked hard
Course layout and terrain were lots of fun, green were in great condition
Nice golf course
Nice course, not a lot of out of bounds, I still loose balls in the fairway though.
Respected COVID-19. No need to enter clubhouse. Pay online, confirm at walk up window with plastic partition to protect from respiratory transmission. Rest room had touch-less dispensers and toilet flushers.
Great course to walk. Not to hilly not to flat, cart paths helped pushing.
Greens and fairways were in great condition.
Friendly staff, friendly golfers.
Great all around
The staff here is great. I took a beginner with me and instead of being rude or trying to push the pace of play, they were very nice and ensured that all was well and to continue to have fun.
The course itself was in great condition. Not the most challenging course but still enough to need to make shots to score. I highly recommend.
