Course Reviews


Played on a Wednesday, cost just $32 to ride. This is a first-rate public course. Conditions were great, especially for late March. Tee to green, it's in excellent shape. Lots of variety in the design of each hole. The changes in elevation made it more challenging, without being too hilly. Pro Shop and restaurant folks (excellent Bloody Mary's) were friendly and knowledgeable. Yardage books in all carts, with tips on how to play each hole really helped us get to know the course.

paid $45 on Sunday at 2pm. What a deal ! Playing here then heading to Balmoral Racetrack for the night card really makes for a nice Sunday. I live downtown and this course is worth the drive. Most courses around Chicago are flat but not this one. Great elevation changes, great sloped greens, rolling fairways . . . plus all of it is in TOP shape.

This course is extremely challening. I usually break 90 and struggled to break 100 here mostly because the greens are far superior to what I am used to. They FLY !! Touch the putt too stiff and it is gone. Makes for some comical moments for sure. Very challenging greens. Had fourteen three putts, my usual is two per round.

I will definetely come back to this course. It's in phenominal shape plus it is pretty cheap comparitavely to other Chicago courses. Great layout, friendly staff, not tooo far of a drive. Definitely worth it.

Always in good shape. Tree lined fairways and/or elavation changes on almost every hole. Early in the week it's a great value, green fee goes up Wed. thru the weekend, not cheap on Sat./Sun. Very busy, you need a reservation.

Too bad most of the area population is far from this course. It is a gem ! Rolling terrain, firm and fast greens. Challenging yet fair layout. The course looses some of it's serenity with it's proximity to rt 394.
Course opened in 1976 but it has the maturity and feel of a course from the 1920's,which I find great. Unusual layout leaves you away frm the clubhouse on hole 9. There is a mini snack shop on 9 and back around on 13. Lots of scenic woods, forest preserve ajoins part of the course.
Great value on Mon./Tue special $37 w/cart all day. Course has a lot of events and outings, call 1st and make a tee time before making the long drive. Small resturaunt and bar to enjoy a meal after a round. Clubhouse is fully stocked. No cart service on Tuesday when I played. Plenty of water on almost every other hole.
