Rating 74.3

Located in Wheaton, Cantigny Golf offers 27 holes of championship golf that plays across a beautiful landscape of rolling hills covered with hardwood trees and mature oaks. There are also 12 lakes and two wandering creeks that come into play throughout all of the golf courses. The holes are divided into three nines appropriately named the Lakeside, Hillside, and Woodside. They provide three very different 18-hole combinations. The Woodside/Lakeside Course is a tight course that plays through trees. The many water hazards also demand accuracy. There are interesting elevation changes as well as numerous strategically placed bunkers. All of the Cantigny golf courses are challenging yet playable, making it a great place for tournaments. In the past it has hosted the Illinois Amateur Championship and several USGA qualifiers.

Best greens this year 5/10/2022!

As always, Cantigny is a fantastic time and is maintained immaculately. One thing I noted today- The greens were AWESOME. Despite a lot of rain they were hard and rolling fast (like 12) and true, A+

One of the worst courses in chicagoland area

Fairways are same length as the rough at most courses. If you are going to spend 100+ go play dubs.

Great layout and the course was in very good shape. The Lakeside greens must have very recently been punched as it was very bumpy. It was an enjoyable experience

Waste of money. Course is in terrible condition.

This was a round that I was looking forward to. Beautiful October afternoon. Thought the 115.00 price was high for an afternoon in October but that is demand pricing in the golf industry these days. This course however is in absolutely terrible if not unplayable shops The aeration is dramatic. Especially on Woodside. We never really
putted out because there is actually more sand than grass in the manner that they aerated this nine. Stay away from this course. They will continue to COVID price you until you holld them accountable. There is no course in this area that is in this poor condition.

Please don’t follow up with a canned response about being sorry that you didn’t enjoy the experience. You know how bad it is.

Cloudy cool day.

Very nice course. Pretty wet and didn't get much roll on the ball especially near the greens. The foursome in front very slow it took 4 hours and forty five minutes. Still beautiful course and would play again.

Price for Senior Players

The senior price of $125.00 is outrageous. That is not a senior rate on any planet. It is a beautiful complex but the price is too high for the senior player. $89 was a fair price not a penny more.
