Definitely improved under the new Billy Casper management. This course, just south of Jackson Park, is a much more challenging course despite its reasonable 9-hole length. Jutting out into Lake Michigan, the first three holes can play a bit like a links course when the wind is out of the North. The holes are longer and many of the fairways narrower than its Jackson Park cousin. The views from this course cannot be beat because of its beautiful exposed location on a peninsula out in the lake. This was an interesting and challenging nine-hole course and I will definitely play there again.

The greens are poorly kept. The price is too steep for a course this short (no par 5s). They rent carts, but not needed for such a short course.

Perfect Municiple 9 hole

Right on Lake Michigan, this little 9 hole course is a gem. Cheap and fairly difficult with mature tree on several holes. Forget out a pro shop though, it's little more than a teller booth. Great for a quick extended lunch. While most golfers here are beginners, carts help move play along fair quick. Weekday afternoons this course can be pretty empty since most golfers opt for north side digs such are Marovitz.
