Sportsman's is on the long list of near north suburban courses to go through a major overhaul/renovation. They did a pretty good job given that flat nature of the land. It's probably a step down from the renovations done at Chevy Chase in Wheeling and Arrowhead in Wheaton.

The place is not tricked up with a lot of forced carries, GPS or island greens. The trees while not ridiculously imposing do a great job framing the holes. It's a very classic parkland course. With just a par of 70, the 6,300 yards creates a decent challenge. The difficulty at Sportsman's comes from the heavily contoured greens. They run really fast and are really firm...probably too fast/firm for the caliber of golfer (resident) that frequents this muni. The other challenge is the deep grass faced bunkers, all of which were renovated. The greens and bunkers are almost out of character for what is an otherwise very straight forward and tame golf course

The course is usually in decent shape. Sand is excellent, fairways and greens are good. The rough gets trampled by all of the carts, perhaps due to the lack of paths. It seems to get heavy play and the conditions fade by fall.

It's nice to play a mature course that is also in good shape. The location and lack of houses make it a good option to all of the residential tracks in the collar counties. The place seems to be booked solid with resident most weekends, but during the week it is a joy.
