The Best of the Forest Preserve Courses

This is one of my favorite courses! I recently started golfing this year and this is the course that I will consistently return to. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The course is usually kept in good condition. Occasionally after a large rain fall the fairways can be in rough shape, but the grounds crew really works hard to keep this course in good shape. Some of the greens could use a little work. This can be a challenging course for a beginner but has really helped me improve my game and how I approach my shots. I cannot recommend this course enough. I try to golf here at least once a week and have brought many of my friends and family to play here as well.

Another a great day at Dunne

Great layout great course. Was a little soggy but that’s what happens when it rains 2 inches over night. Course is in really good shape for how much play it gets. Glad coyote sighting didn’t cost extra yesterday.

Lots of rain in the morning, so fairways and bunkers were wet, but expected for that much rain. Rain cleared and it was 70+ degrees on an October afternoon, perfect.
Pac was great til the last 3 holes. 18 is a tough hole that seemed to back it up. Great course and value

Don’t do it

Greens were caked in sand. Fringes overgrown with weeds. Rough outside fairways was dead grass and hard dirt. Fairways were very nice. Not worth the rate with a cart under these conditions.

A great play

The layout here always makes it worth it, no matter what the conditions are. Right now all of the greens are almost perfect, so it'll test your game without forcing you to battle scrubby putting conditions to score. Fairways and rough areas were trashed from heavy play over the hot summer, but we just played winter rules where neccessary. The shot values make this track a keeper and always will. Friendly staff as always too.

Great course especially for a Park district/forest preserve course. Prefect pace of play. Challenging but not crazy. Good balance of fun and challenging. Will definitely be back.

Great course in need of $ for upkeep

Still one off the best layouts in the area, but overall conditions are slowly slipping. Each time I’ve played here over the past several years has been slightly worse than the previous. Bunkers need upkeep. Several bald spots and potholes on many fairways. There was an outright excavation going on in the middle of a fairway. Collars around many greens have crabgrass issues, but the greens themselves were fine. An outing ahead of us made for a 5+ hour round and there was no marshall to keep things moving. There once were 4 groups on a par 5 hole. It’d be a shame if this great track deteriorates further.
