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.

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.
This course surprised me, in a good way. The fairways are very skinny, but first cut is wide and doesn't punish at all. Beautiful course, especially for the money
Golf in July
I was there to work on my short game and I spent time at the range working on the wedges and short irons. I did enjoy playing with another couple and the course was in good shape the greens were very good and not too fast. I shot a very good back nine which help the experience.
Crystal woods golf club
I have always liked to play crystal woods club for at least couple dozen years now.
Layout is always changing relative to weather.conditions and time of year. Very well maintained by professional staff .
One of my very favorite courses to play in
Do yourself a favor and play soon. Great value.
Good course and good pace
Had a 9:00am tee time and got out on time and had no issues at all throughout the round with pace. Course was in good shape and the greens were pretty quick. Overall good course and good pace!
run of the mill
get what u pay for ... nothing bad to say greens r fine just dont expect pebble beach
Fairways like cement, lack of rain or watering. Very slow that day, very slow play. Slow players did not let us through. Of all the years I played this course, this is the first time I had this problem. Usually this place is in great shape
Staff is "by the Book". They walked up to my cart, and opened my cooler, filled with ice, as they thought we brought beer. They didn't ask what it was, just opened my stuff. Then paired us with a random, even though we went out for a birthday outing.
Not as friendly anymore
I'll never play here as a single again. They claim that their deal with GolfNow makes them have you ride in the sa,e cart as w
However you are paired with. Last time I was forced to ride with a cigarette smoker, and it was very unpleasant. No other GolfNow booked course makes you do this. Staff seems very unfriendly.
I have have been asked to ride with a guy who smelled like brewery and a blind guy I had to be his eyes (ridicules).sad to say this happens at numerous courses. Golf now a serviice hired by the management company but is disliked by its employees.
I have complained to golf now and they have aploizied and sent me golf balls.
I have had to drop off my playing partner one after nine. Just stopped took his bag off and left. I guess he left because I finished the round alone in the cart.
