Gary Player at Geneva National Golf Club
Geneva National Golf Club boasts three championship courses, each with a notable designer: Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, and Lee Trevino. All three courses sit along the shores of Lake Como and were carved from lush, rolling countryside. The Gary Player Course, along with the Palmer Course, provides the greatest challenges and also some of the best scenery. Water hazards come into play on 12 holes in the form of wandering streams and large lakes. One of the most memorable holes with water is the par-3 16th. There is a lake that wraps almost entirely around the green, giving it the feel and difficulty of an island green. In addition to the water, golfers will also have numerous strategically placed bunkers to contend with. The club is popular with locals but also with visitors since it is only a short drive from metropolitan Chicago and Milwaukee.

Staffs are very kind,course is good condition. Played Gary cours
Nice lay out.
I will come back and play again.
I always enjoy golfing here. Everything is in top shape and staff are extremely friendly!
Thus was my first time playing the Player course and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Beautiful views and a great course to okay! Loved the layout! Will ge back!
Absolutely stunning! First class service. Great condition for late October.
Brats were mediocre.
Awesome and fun layout. I’d play here again especially during their fall rates. If there is one negative, it’s the 18th hole. Was a little bit underwhelming considering the rest of the course but I found the course very enjoyable.
Great layout but pace of play is brutal
The slow play of 5 to 5.5 hour rounds on both sat and sun will keep people from seeing this as a destination golf resort. I played the player course a week ago and it was a 5.5+ hour round. 3 data points makes a trend
Great course. Staff was excellent.
Don't want to say too many nice things or everyone will go play but it was so nice I can't help myself.
Decent course layout
Slow pace of play really ruined about everything else. Will say if pace of play is normal you’d likely enjoy the scenery and conditions of the course.
Course is about what to expect from a super popular public course. Layout and conditions are pretty good, but two major complaints..
1. Drinking Water. Put some friggin drinking water out on the course. I get it, you make money off people drinking beer, but no one like being nickel and dimed into drinking $5 bottles of water when you could easily just put out a few water jugs on 2 or 3 holes. It's ridiculous.
2. Pace of play. Somehow, even with three courses, they managed to have just about everyone who was playing between 9-11AM all play on one course, slammed back to back. Spread out the play, guys. That's why you have 3 courses.
This course isn’t cheap but worth every penny. Well maintained and aesthetically pleasing. Not brutally hard but you have to play well to score. Greens not super fast but a good moderate speed. End your day with a brisket taco and spotted cow inside the great restaurant or out on the deck. They now have a great putting course as well. AWESOME+
