A nice course with a good variety of holes. The course was in very good condition despite heavy rain in the week beforehand. Some challenging greens and intimidating bunkers due to lots of undulations.

Course has lowered it's green fees in recent years.
New generation of owners do best letting our company do the managing.
Course is well maintained by Scott.

This is definitely not a 4 star golf course anymore. I heard nice things about the course over the years and since I was in the area I decided to throw down $89 (at least $40 more than I need to pay anywhere in the Chicago area) to play mid-morning on Sunday.
None of the sand traps are groomed...they are pretty much hard pan (think Forest Preserve National prior to Billy Casper getting in there to manage it)and most have puddles/ponds in them and some are swarming with mosquitos. The rest of the course is fine (some poa anna on the greens) and yes it's a good challenge and a overall quality track.
150 yard posts in the middle of the fairways would really help...especially for 1st timers. No beverage cart and the half way house wasn't open either even though the course was fairly busy. Also no rangers in sight and it was a solid 5 1/2 hour round with a least 3 foursomes who had no business playing a course of this difficulty (the slope is definitely dead on).
The staff was friendly and accomodating....but I won't ever go back unless they fix the sand traps. Why have them at all if you don't even attempt to maintain them? Not worth the money...go to Lake Michigan Hills in Coloma for less then half the money.

Great golf course. Front nine very difficult. Very well managed. New staff members Dennis and Scott have improved the facility greatly. Great value...play it if you get the chance.
