Course Reviews

Do not listen to them about the houses. The houses are 50-75 yards right or left. This is the only public course in NW chicago with 10+ stimp greens. If you want a great course with amazing greens look no further. PS. It gets crowded on the weekends, so if possible go on a weekday.

agree with the comments about the houses - WAY too close to the rough. very well maintained but it's really a course with a ton of bunkers, not many trees, and backyards

I play here every week. The course is fairly difficult from all the bunkers and traps. You have to target your landing areas. The houses don't bother me at all. In fact, there was a lot of thought as to their layouts. You have to really miss a shot to hit one. The upkeep and landscaping is top notch.
The food is wonderful. The staff is great. What else do you need or want?

I played this course early in the year when the green fees were low and I am glad I did.

After driving through it many times and seeing the quality of the course, I had to play it. After doing so, I left slightly disappointed. The course was great, burgers in the bar were great, and was also treated quite kindly by the staff despite previous reviews. The one and only thing that I can not stand is all the houses! Part of the reason I golf is to get away, not to hang out in a sub-division. There was absolutely no escaping it throughout the entire course. A poor drive on any given hole could mean damage to someones $1,000,000 home.

Too many houses to look at. Great layout, good condition and average to good greens. Very rude and disinterested staff in pro shop. Was referred by friend of Pro, asked for him by name but was told he's not here and I guess that was the end of the conversation. I can play anywhere, and I won't play there again!

Too bad they had to put a subdivision around this very fun course.
