The Chicago public courses were taken over by Billy Casper golf this year and the new management has clearly aimed to improve the quality of the courses. Mowing and staffing at Jackson Park are much better than in year's past. They have opened an actual clubhouse and now rent carts which should increase the pace of play.

The course itself I enjoy since its difficulty is in the easy-moderate range but covers a variety of territory and pretty locations. It is challenging, but you do not have to work too hard at it. For the price, it really can't be beat. Casper has not changed prices from last year so twilight (after 3 p.m.) rounds with a Chicago Card are $15.50 walking...a total steal.

This course can play really slow at times. There are no driving carts. Pull carts can be rented. This place doesn't serve alcohol.

This is a Muni!

Very typical municipal course. Not difficult, not fancy, not well kept, slow pace, indifferent staff, but very economical. Also the location for this course is convenient to downtown Chicago. The fairways are lined with mature trees as this actually is one the oldest courses in the Chicagoland area. But, the fairways are packed close to each other and some tees are dangerously position next to greens. Given some of the poor players that come to this course, I recommend you wear a helmet!
