At face value, the course is pretty nice. Lots of elevation changes and tight driving holes. But when you finally make it to the green, that's where the fun STOPS. The greens are slower than any greens I've ever played on, and it takes away from the experience because you have to basically pray that your putts even come close to the hole. Your approcah shots will not spin because the greens are soft and spongy, and judging an uphill or downhill putt, or a simple break, is basically rocket science. If the greens were cut and rolled, I would play this course again. But I will NEVER come back unless I have confirmation that the greens have been maintained.

Also, it may not be an issue for some, but the only balls they had for sale in the clubhouse were Wilson and Top Flight. Not cool...

Course was in pretty good shape. They keep the greens very long, which makes them very, very, very slow. If they would cut the greens shorter, I'd play it again.

RUDE staff. Extreme jerks. Course isn't worth visiting. Too many other course that welcome your business. This isn't Pebble Beach, so where the attitude comes from is beyond me. Again, don't waste your time visiting...go to one of the other 15 courses within 20 miles of this dump.

Hill and valley course in Chicago

On Oct. 2 the greens fee was $ of the best bargains in Chicagoland. But this is no flat pancake course: the terrain is beautiful and challenging, with lots of hills and ravines to shoot over. Walk the course carrying your own bag, as I did, and get a real workout. But carts are available and cheap.
Greens are smallish but well-placed on hilltops, or dug into hillsides, with reasonable slopes. Few sand traps have been designed into the course...the primary hazards are the hills!
This course has been out 95th Street, just beyond the Tri-State (I-294) since the I&M canal days. Opened in 1915, the attached facilities have grown to match the changing neighborhood. Two-level driving range, huge banquet hall with views from the hilltop, smaller restaurant and pro shop.
This is an easy to reach course with a lot more vertical than Cog Hill. Next time you're headed for the outer suburbs, think twice and turn south on I-294 for Hickory Hills.
