A Very Difficult Track, Lost Marsh…In The Name Is the Clue. A Lot Of Water, Marsh And Wind. The Fairways Are Cut Narrow and Around The Lakes and Marsh. You Must Play Smart Off The Tee. What You Hit 180-200 Straight Is The Shot Off A Lot Of tees. Be Smart And Play The Appropriate Tees. There’s a Cotton factory Next Door So it Looked Like It Was Snowing On The Golf Course. Some Of The Greens Were Completely White From The Cotton Floating In The Air. It Would Blow Into Your Eyes. The First 4-5 Holes Are Brutal and The Greens Were In Excellent Shape. The Back Side Opens Up More Than The Front, Its A Very Challenging Golf Course.
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
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.
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.
Another great round at lost marsh
Still one of my favorite courses.
Greens are slow but its first week open. Course otherwise in great shape.
Gem of a course.
This is one of the best courses in indiana and the Chicago land area. Challenging. Must play again
