Course Reviews

Open to public, uncrowded, maintained as well as most municipal courses, though greens could use some tlc. 19th hole is nice - attractive and inexpensive restaurant/bar.

The Course is Open to the Public!

Another one of my secret tracks. No reason to crowd up this course, please stay away =)

The best course I have played in this area. Wonderful staff, and an excellent challenge for anyone.

Willow Glen Golf Course

It is almost a shame this course is on a military base, because there are alot of civilians out there who will never get to play on the finest courses in Northern Illinois. For the price, it is impossible to beat Willow Glen. The course is kept in immaculate condition. Great greens, firm fairways are all prevalent here. Wind, water and a fair share of sandtraps litter the course. Difficult course for the beginner but worth the frustration of losing a few balls. The Navy has done it right with Willow Glen!!
