The experience I had at Robert A. Black is what cemented my love for golf. I booked my tee time on the way into town via their web site and showed up about 20 minutes early to make sure I was warmed up and ready. I'd only been playing for 2 weeks at the time and the staff there made sure I knew where everything was and how to proceed on the course. I was matched up with a pair of ladies from Chicago that had played the course several times themselves and they were an absolute blast to play with. The course itself is well laid-out, well maintained and plays beautifully. I made sure to spend a few bucks in the clubhouse on souvenirs and such to remember this experience. I'd go every day if I lived in Chi-town.

Easy course, short a low par. Course is better maintained than some of the other Chicago Park District courses, but don't expect a whole lot compared to the private courses around Chicago.

Active greens, well maintained

Short course that has some very active greens, lots of breaks and slopes on some holes making the short game very important as there is only one par 5.

Good for practicing

the par and length speaks for itself 1 challenging hole, number 3
