Almost $70 dollars for a weekday round, and you get a flat, 6200yd, glorified driving range. There is no value to this whatsoever. Spend an extra 10$ and play ThunderHawk 20 minutes away, and you will be blown away. They have no business charging this much for such a short and easy course. Maintenance staff is always out, but, nothing seems to get done. Greens are just OK. My guess is this is just a great place to be seen and pretentiously spend an obscene amount on green fees, because,'s Lake Forest!

Nice course. The hole layout is tight so you may have some groups on the wrong holes but the course is well maintained. A value for arround $40 bucks (coupon needed) and it is easily accesible from Chicago. Not the most challenging course but still requires some shot making.
