Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Illinois
To many leaves
To my leaves made it hard to find the ball..map on scorecard was difficult to follow.. Course otherwise was very challenging and in great shape.
The courses rough was extremely long and the staff was very unfriendly they were prepping for a golf outing the next day and people were jumping holes all over the place and they didn’t care
Excellent course, excellent shape, and great bar!
The course is in excellent shape. It's a challenging course, especially the first five holes. Long par threes (except 1). Great layout. Staff was good. Nancy in the clubhouse is a fantastic bartender! Come try it! You will love it!
First time playing this course in a couple yrs and as always was very happy with the course its condition and the staff.
Disappointed with course condition.
Have played this course numerous times over the last fifteen years or so. This is the poorest overall condition I have seen it in. The rough had.not been mowed, the traps had weeds growing in them, many trees are dead, etc. It used to be the only issue was hard greens that wouldn't hold. Not so now.
course was in fair shape. I think it was due to too much rain earlier in summer and no rain later in summer. played here many times course is always in good shape. staff at course are very nice every time I have been there.
New management made HUGE improvements!
Golf course has changed a lot under the new management. It is night and day from previous management. Highly recommend this golf course. Great lay out with a very friendly staff.
Average but worse than I remember
It was unfortunate to see such a great course in poor condition. The layout is great, plays long, and normally a nice challenge. The course has really gone downhill with management turnover as most fairways and greens were very dirty and full of chunks and divots. There were no markers on any of the fairways and hardly identifiable markings on path for distances. However, given the busy weekend traffic, pace of play wasn’t too bad. In all, good for the money but not what it used to be.
Saturday $10 Hot Deal
See my previous review of Pontiac Elks. Awesome place and has a great vibe. The greens were aerated recently (medium cores and not sanded) but still rolling okay...a tad bumpy but a $10 hot deal was a steal. Plus no one on the course practically. Played in 220. Simply awesome and fun to get a groove going. Look forward to playing there in 2018 a few more times....well worth the drive. A few of the regulars told me that that folks at Wolf Creek have taken over the maintenance of the course and that bodes well for quick fast greens because Wolf Creek takes care of their greensites very very well. Go play this place!!
