This course is a joke.
How?.. you may ask.

-Range is the biggest clusterf*ck (I seriously can't use a better word than that, I'm sorry) I've ever seen.
-The workers in the pro shops are straight up d-bags, it's like they're doing you a favor.. which leads me to my next point.
-The course isn't anything to write home about whatsoever, it may have a solid 4 quality golf holes on it.
-Wayyyyyyy overpriced. $35 for 9 holes... ha!

on a side note... today was cart path only. Ok, that's cool, the Chicago area just got pounded with rain all week...

but did every single employee there have to reiterate the fact that 'alll 4 wheels must be on the cart path at all times...'

No. They didn't.

If given the choice, I will never play here again. Sadly, high school matches may take place here. If so, I will be sick that day.

4.5 hours on a Sunday teeing off at 7.48 isn't bad. Greens are really good and staff friendly. Good value.

A lot must have changed in a year. I've played out there a few times this year and each time it was terrific. The new management team has done a wonderful job overhauling the golf course, and the greens are in perfect condition. Everytime i've been out there has been a starter and a ranger, and the longest I've played is 4:45 on a Sunday. Given the price and location, this is one of the best deals around!

This place is an absolute goat ranch! What a piece of garbage. I can't believe this course made anyone's Top 10,000 list, let alone top 100. If you're that desperate to spend 6 hours playing a play bad golf course, go to Meadowlark and you'll at least save a few $$

Be prepared to stand around and wait when you play Fresh Meadows. Slow play is typical because they don't have any course marshalls and sometimes they dont even have a starter. This course shows how golf starved the Chicago area is, because only the truly desperate play here, and the parking lot is full on the weekends.

How did this dogtrack make the top 25. No way does this belong on any top 25 list. Flat as a pancake with no trouble anywhere. Maybe the driving range would make a top 25 in driving ranges. C'Mon somebody do your home work here.....
