Range

I've come to this course 3 times, trying to get some practice in on the Range. One excuse after another it's going to be dark in a half an hour. It's 615, the range closes at 6:30, we're not picking up any more balls now. That makes no sense it's a driving range it's not dark people want to practice, I'll find somewhere else to practice and pay my money to other people

First time here in about 20 years. There was a bunch of older women who showed up to play before my tee time. There were about 5+ groups so the round took longer that it should have. Thats why a low rating for pace of play. Other than that it was a good time.

Will not play again

Traveled to this course from Western suburbs of Chicago. Got there early for check in, as traffic was relatively light. Course not busy at the time. Pro shop attendant would not let me start round. Said that since I booked my tee time through GolfNow I had to wait because they do not make any money off of GolfNow. So I waited at the vacant 1st tee for 40 minutes. Ridiculous.

Also, fairways were like the first cut at most other courses.

Wet, but playable

When we arrived, we were informed cart path only. The course had been pounded with rain the night before, and it was real steamy. 10 years ago, this course would have been either closed, or a mud pit. Not now. Wicker remains a solid choice for golf in the Region and all things considered, was in fine shape. Thanks for taking care of the course.

Poor Greens

The overall course was good and in good condition, but the putting greens were in terrible condition. They need a blower to blow debris off the greens.

Wicker Memorial Golf Course - Nicely Challenging

It has been about 25 years since I last played this course. They have made a number of changes to the course to improve it in that time. The course was in excellent condition. Play moved right along at a nice pace. Greens and fairways were well manicured. There are a couple holes where there are trenches running across the fairway and of course they are within driving distance, so good luck on them. I got lucky and made it over them, but it wasn't pretty (my drives). You will enjoy the course.

great greens not much else

i have been playing for over 40 years at wicker. the conitioning of the course other than the greens is poor; however, the greens smooth and fast and put as good as anywhere you can play now if they could fix the rest of the course (tees , fairways, bunkers) ou would a great affordable place to play.
