Great Municipal Course!

I would love to play this course in the summer. The elevated views on some of the holes were awesome. The greens were recently aerated and sanded. I imagine in the summer they would be slick and true like glass.

Fall golf

Some kind of mix up between pro shop and ranger on
1st tee. Cart only goes in reverse near greens ( new to me), ranger said they have gps dead zones to keep you away from green . Never was closer to green than the carts only sign, should have been explained at check-in. Other than that, had an enjoyable round and glad to be golfing in November in Chicago !

Great Bang for the Buck

Phillips is a good track for beginners like me, but simultaneously not "insulting" to scratch golfers.

It was perfect day for a round(low 70's in Oct). The only drawback was the pace of play was a little over 4 hours. (it still beats any alternative...LOL!)

Do not like their golf cart

They let software to control their golf cart, and easy to get stuck, not good idea.

their cart does not have enough power.

Had bad experience to use their golf cart, it increase unnecessary hassle to handle the cart when cross high hill.

40 minutes behind pace

Told the ranger we were 25 minutes behind pace on 11 and he said the group ahead was on pace. We ended up playing 40 minutes beyond pace at 4 hours and 50 minutes. There was 2+ holes open in front of the group ahead of us. Otherwise it was a great experienc

Very Nice Public Course

This a fun course to play. Although there isn't any signature holes and any that are extremely difficult, the greens' slopes and speed make up for it. The greens were fast but fairways were in great shape. Tee boxes were a little chewed up but considering it's near the end of the season, this could be expected. Very nice course overall especially when considering it's run by the park district or village. I wish they would have had a beverage cart out on the course.

Would usually be a 5 but the people in front of us played extremely slow, even going as far as jumping the course fence to get a ball from the median and look for another for 10 minutes. Ranger told us they were on schedule which wasn’t true because the group behind us was on us before we teed of every time. Instead of telling the group ahead to hurry them told 2 groups to slow down. And peopel didn’t fix any divots today but that’s not on the course. Round took 4 hours 35 mins

Love this course

As usual the course was in great condition. Just disappointed on other people not repairing ball marks on the greens. Fixed at least 5 per green. Other than that it was an enjoyable round.

Twilight round

Tee off at 4:30pm on Sunday
By that time the driving range was pretty beat up ….should have used the mats!
The overall course was in good shape but, the general public was not fixing their ball marks properly nor were they raking the traps after their use.
I think playing earlier in the day would be a different story.
Lastly the cafeteria was closed when we made the turn so nothing to eat! The
pro shop opened up and sold us a candy bar and something to drink which got us through the round.
Definitely coming back because it’s a local landmark course.
