Never any single or triple T-Times ...Haven’t played yet

This is more of a message to the course operators to allow single players, I often play on short notice and just get paired up, but this course refuses.

When I get to finally play..... after they allow more leniency, I’ll remove This and write actual review

Great potential

This course could be a real gem. it has a good layout but the fairways and some greens are really beat up. Pace of play was fair, and not enforced. nice people. Overpriced for current condition.

Fun track

This was a really good course for the conditions. A lot of rain the past couple days, so the course was very wet. But the course itself was in good shape for the condition. I can’t fault a course for nature. Great layout and super tough greens. Definitely will play again.

Poor Conditions

Terrible conditions. Fairways were in awful shape and poor drainage system. Rained the day prior but should have been dry by the time we played and everything was soaked.

What happened to this place?

Course is in horrible shape. It’s a crime to charge what they do for the condition it’s in. Such a shame because it’s a great layout. I used to love this course but I won’t play it again until they get it in much better shape.

It’s like they’ve given up

I used to love this track, as it has one of the better layouts in the Chicago south suburbs, and was priced fairly. However, the round today had conditions as poor as any I can remember playing golf in the last 5 years. I’m not a stickler for perfect conditions on a muni, but every fairway was spotty with big bald patches, massive cart tire tracks leading to us taking several unplayable lies. Greens were bumpy with several holes missing huge chunks of greens from..unrepaired ball marks? Tee boxes were littered with whole tees and divots.

I’m not sure if there’s a story behind the scenes here, but it seems as though they’ve given up on course maintenance. Until it’s revitalized, I won’t be returning.

Not worth 70 bucks

Played 71 bucks for 18 today. Have waited almost every single hole. Fairways are being re-seeded, in very rough shape. Tee boxes and greens in decent shape. No rangers to be seen.

TerrificTrack; needs some TLC

I love this track. For a Municipal course this is typically one of my favorites. Sand traps were in the best condition that i have seen.

However , many of the fairways appeared to have been either dried out, or hit by a fungus.

This was not worth $71 based on condition of the course.

I am hoping that this is just due to the summer weather conditions as my grass and many of my neighbors are suffering from a fungus.

I hope to be back in the spring, but unlikely i will play again this year.

Unusually poor course condition

I’ve played here several times before and usually really enjoy it, but the course is in pretty bad shape right now. Many of the fairways have a lot of grooves / cut marks throughout, so they may be doing some sort of repairs or something. The staff is always top notch and typically this is a great course for the price, but I don’t think I’ll play it again this year.

fairways poor

they had sign up saying that the fairways had brown patches-that was an understatement -plus the were out tilling the fairways with a tractor cutting lines and putting down fertilizer/seed made them very unpredictable-greens were in mid summer shape and well watered-had we known about fairways might have gone elsewhere

Great layout, poor fairway conditions

First time playing after having heard good things. $71 with a cart so not exactly a steal. Layout was truly great and challenging without punishing, though some mature trees had some branches hanging a bit menacingly. The greens and tee boxes were about as I'd expect for a public course, but bunkers were hard packed. The real issues here were the fairways (huge brown patches but also somehow squishy and wet, either from irrigation issues or bad drainage), and COVID protections - no foam in cups and all the rakes were left in bunkers. I'll be back but not this season until the fairways are back in reasonable shape.

First Time at Waters Edge

Never played this course before but went out with a buddy on a Saturday morning. I had read the reviews about the fairways and they are accurate. They apparently sprayed some herbicide or pesticide on the fairways that left large brown spots. Now, it looks like they are overwatering the course to bring them back. Either way, it was 10:00 a.m. , 85 degrees, bright and sunny, and some of the fairways were sopping wet. Greens were in okay shape. The course design is good, a bit challenging, but not too tough. Tee boxes (especially on the back 9) were in terrible shape, mostly just sand without any grass.

Overall, for $50, it wasn't too bad. If I'd spent $70, I'd feel like I spent too much given the course's condition.
