Another Top 10 in the Chicago area. Well kept, tough but fair, Great scenery. I will make it back to this one.

Very fair course! Challenging, but not impossible to score well. The course was in excellent shape and I would definitely go back.

A great value at its current prices - especially for FVPD residents.

I played this course for a large outing on a weekday after it had rained heavily for 12 hours.

Really nice course layout with plenty of well placed bunkers and water in play on most holes - especially if you play from the back couple tees. If you drive ~ 280yds or more, this course will not be too bad for you as long as you are pretty good with the mid & long irons. The course has many holes that will tempt you try the long shot over the hazard instead of the safe shot... Have at it as long as you bring an extra couple sleeves. Approach shots can be very tough, usually shooting over a bunker (or several). The greens were for most part multi-sloped and some were multi-tiered. Even after the rain they played fairly consistently - they did show a lot of wear typical of a public course where for some reason PEOPLE DON'T FIX THEIR BALL MARKS!!! Drives me crazy...
Te driving range was decent, not the cheapest for the number of balls - $10 for 72 balls - the grass was not open when we were there... mats only

The clubhouse was large, the restaurant and bar were very nice. Dinner was provided for the outing, so we didn't order individually - but the food was prepared there and it was very good. The bar had a full stock, the bartender was nice and the wait staff was very courteous.

Did not spend any time in the proshop - but it at least looked well stocked and high quality.

I would recommend this course to friends and would play there again -

One of the best values in the Western Suburban Chicago area

It may not be Cog Hill but, dollar for dollar, you will be hard pressed to find a course that is better than Orchard. The course is eminently fair for higher handicappers and the back tees are quite a challenge for the low handicappers.
