Beautiful & Challenging

The course is a beautiful links layout with generous fairways and undulating greens. Spray the ball and it will punish you. Hit fairways and scoring opportunities abound. It was in excellent condition. Greens were fast and true. The staff is always courteous and professional. The Grumpy Goat Restaurant has a fine selection of delicious food with indoor and outdoor dining. The beautiful, expansive clubhouse patio provides a scenic view of the course. A first class operation.

Nice course

Course was dry and greens were nice. Several other more expensive courses in the area were water logged. This is a nice course course that allows you to use every club in your bag. I’ll definitely be back.

Amazing layout!

One of the most scenic tracks in the west burbs. Lots of up and downs & risk vs. rewards. Always a go to in the Elgin area. Must play!

NIce links style course

The course is just off RTE20 in Elgin. The course was elevated, so there were many vista views. There was many holes with water. The sand traps were plentiful and the sand was quality level. There are many marsh that cross the fairways that caused a challenge. WIll play again once my skill level improves some.

Not for the faint of heart, especially in windy conditions. The course demands accuracy and strategic play. Very fast greens and not many straight putts.

Well manicured

Fairways and greens in great shape. Links course is very challenging. I suggest clubbing down on tee box. Roll is plenty so take 3wood over driver.
F.Y.I. if using "hot deal" starter won't let you take your own cart if your single. Forces you to ride with stranger. Just odd.

Stop mowing while we are golfing

This course is very nice but the people mowing were mowing the grass while we were trying to play the same hole they were mowing on. At one point I had to run up to my ball yelling at him not to mow over my ball. Then after that we played the back nine while this same guy was following us hole by hole and mowing every hole we were trying to play . We teed off at 7:40AM so we could have a nice day but this was completely ruined by trying to dodge the guy on the mower. Complained to the club house afterwards and all he said was sorry about that...thanks for nothing. We will not be coming back and we play a lot of golf. You lose.
