Bring your A game or extra balls

The course layout is great and the course was in excellent condition. The first five holes are probably the most difficult being water on each. Which challenges your accuracy and when to lay up on some shots. I will play this course again soon

great track

Outstanding course, very tough. It was in great condition, with new sand in the traps. If you survive the first 5 holes unscathed, you can go low. Otherwise, bring extra balls

Poor Pace of Play

Course is in good shape and the layout & routing are challenging while being fair but they consistently have a slow pace of play problem. I give them a chance nearly every year but just can't recommend Lost Marsh unless you're ok with 5 hour rounds. The two groups in front of us had a gap in front of them but no consideration for us to play through. Worse, they looked like regulars or members with their logo hats and shirts. In peak season this will only get worse.

hidden gem

Challenging, well-maintained course just over the IL/IN border. Lots of water, elevation changes, etc. Staff was friendly, carts were electric and had GPS.

I'll happily make the drive for $50 w/ cart, immense value vs. similarly priced IL muni courses that are in terrible shape.

Great Conditions Tough Layout

First five holes and hole 10 have plenty of water, if you can survive these holes one can score well. I was surprised with the rolling terrain and the modern undulating greens. Course conditions were perfect. Must play for all golfers.

Challenging but fun

Wanted to give up after the 4th hole 🤦🏾‍♂️, but kept going. The slopes and bad lies can bring you to your knees, but the challenge of hitting them straight was intriguing. Considering its reputation, I only lost about 5 or 6 balls...which ain't bad for a novice golfer. Still was able to par and hit for par a few times. Beautiful layout which I'm sure gets even more beautiful as the season progresses. The wind was crazy, but you can actually score well on this course. Despite the weather having been wet lately the fairways were fairly good. My balls actually got some bounce which is an attestment to the draining of the course. Can't wait to return.

Great first round

Course is great. Affordable close to the city. Greens are slow but it’s early in the year. Otherwise course was in very good condition.

While maybe a little gimmicky still a lot of fun

First time playing here in over 5 years, but Lost Marsh was still everything I remember. There a couple holes on each side which are borderline unfair, but overall it a fun experience considering what the property use to be in the past.

Disrespectful Staff

The staff is absolutely terrible, swearing at us smoking, and telling us they don’t care if we or anyone else comes back again. Even threatening us
