Disappointed by the conditions of most of the greens (divots, dead spots) which was rather slow for being known as one of the fastest greens in the area.

Great course, fair pace of play

This is one of the best courses in northern Illinois if not the entire state. It is very well maintained. Greens are very true and the starter will asset you in selecting appropriate tees for your ability.

We faced every kind of weather today (7/23/2021) including a rain delay and incredible humidity. The refreshment cart came around frequently and was well stocked - takes cash and plastic.

The entire staff is friendly and helpful. And they are fully staffed despite post-pandemic labor shortages. There were beverage cart operators, attendants at the bag drop to get your clubs on and off the cart and get your clubs cleaned. Food service is excellent and available through the cart digital access. The carts are plush and comfortable. There are rain covers for your clubs, a ball and club washer on board. Other amenities include an excellent practice facility and a beautiful clubhouse.

My only complaint is that the rangers are unable to maintain pace of play. Although they are authorized to make groups move up a hole if they lag terribly, they generally don't do this and at times you can face a near five hour round.

the last hole is a ball buster!

Looking forward a fair challenge? It’s here.

Played on Saturday morning, which i don’t normally do due to slower pace. Not here. The pace was excellent and we finished a few minutes under 4 hours and never caught up or were pushed along the whole round. The course is long, fair , and offers a nice variety of hole layouts. The course is in nice shape as are the greens. Nothing g i appreciate more then a good range, short game area and putting facility to ready up for a good challenge. BYW, i played two weeks in a row.

If you can drive ball over 175, you can score well

The course was in very good shape. The starter suggested playing white tees. i guess they must get a lot of newer golfers. if you can get the ball off the tee 150-175 yards without a horrible hook or slice, this course is gettable. We should have played golds, if not silver, and I'm a 19.

Putting is among the easiest for a course of this caliber. Nothing tricky or overly STIP...in fact, STIP was not as high as we were told, if you ask me.

A very, very enjoyable round and worth the trek.

A little disappointed

Two things - with nowhere to go in front of us, we had the group behind us hit into us numerous times and actually hit the cart we were in. 2nd - My playing partners and I all thought the greens were very shaggy and slow. All other area courses have better greens - more fiar and in better shape.

Thank you for your review. We received 3-4" of rain right during that period and they were a bit soft for a few days. We are back to normal. Thanks for coming out!

The layout is changing but fair, the staff is great. They have a nice short game practice area that’s included in the greens fee.
