This course has,according to the web suite, 14 lakes and 108 sand traps, so it can be a bit of a challenge as by my count water came into play on 10 of the 18 holes. The greens have enough contour to them to make putting interesting, infuriating, and enjoyable at the same time I found a coupon online foe 18 holes with a cart for $29 so I think it's an excellent value. Would definitely play this one again.

This is a good, well-maintained course. The holes are not generally too lengthy, but there is a lot of water and many sand traps, so it can still be challenging. Good course for beginning or intermediate players.

Like any golf course, if your not hitting it straight you can ring up a big number. But in general, this is a fairly easy course. Any mid to low handicap should break 80 with little trouble. The fairways are not bent grass and tend to be thick which leads to a lot lush or flyer lies. Very forgiving. The worst parts of this course are the geese and the unevenness (domed shape) of many of the tee boxes. Also gets lots of league play so beware. You don't want to get caught behind one. Call ahead. Greens also tend to run on the slow side.

Nice course for the price - $18 for residents after 3pm in the mid-summer will get you through 18 no problem. The greens are nice - better thean I thought they would be. Lots of sand around small greens keeps your approach shots honest.

At first glance of the scorecard, this course appears to be easy. The course is only 5401 yds and a slope of 112.
A couple of par 4's could be reached by long hitters.
But there are some tricky sloping greens many holes have water.
Hole 9 is probably the signature hole of the course. Tee shot requires a water crossing with water on the right and left sides. Also about 70 yds from the green is another water crossing and bunkers guarding the elevated green on front and back. Clubhouse has only a light menu.
Proshop does have a small selection of clubs and accessories. Rental clubs are available.
I felt confined compared to other suburban courses. Development is all around and right to the boundries of the property. Also of note is this course is right within the flight path of ORD. I would suggest playing just for the challange of the 9th hole.
