Shouldn't Open when Soaked

This review is for late May after quite a bit of rain recently. I know some courses are closed due to wet conditions, and honestly this course shouldn't have been open. I can deal with softness and some mud, but this was uncalled for. Many bunkers were basically ponds. Several holes with fairways basically turned into ponds or morphing into the marsh. Worst of all are many hits took the course with you since it was so wet and soaked. Let alone the mud everywhere.

I've played on soft courses, but wet courses are terrible and horrible to maintain in good condition. This course drainage system didn't exist. Parts of the fairways looked beat up because it was too wet for normal play.

Mind you, I walked it due to covid-19 restrictions in May. Somehow the people behind me got carts, but they didn't look like they needed them at all. In fact they could have used the walking. Because of them breathing down my neck since they didn't have to walk at all, and the group in front me was moving slow since they hit from the blues without the additional distance to justify hitting that far made the pace of play out of wack. In fact, they were painfully slow, even with a 15 min gap. Overall I was disappointed, and I want to try it again after the course is dried. The course shouldn't be open after some rain since it can't handle it.

Thank you for taking the time to review. Yes, that was one of the wettest periods we've seen. We did get 4" the previous day, and another 4 a couple days before that. We do have a lot of property and drainage is some of the best around, but that system flooded the whole area in northern IL. We welcome you back as the course is in pristine condition! Thanks so much for playing and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

As good as advertised

Wide open fairways, fast greens, and lots of hazards make this course a great challenge. The layout has challenges for lots of shots and you can be creative as you approach, unlike a lot of other area courses. The greens are large so you’re rewarded with a decent approach and the tee options are actually worthy of choosing a set that matches your game. This is a golfers golf course, not something for people who want to putz around and tap the ball.

Golfing xanadu

For a top notch golfing experience, you can't find a better venue.
This is probably the finest course in Lake County, or close to it. Conditions are excellent and thanks to Golf Now, price can't be beat. Greens were close to being too fast however . Definitely one of my favorite places to visit.

Great trac

Course was in great condition. People need to learn how to repair marks on greens though. One true test of your all around game. Shot 37 on front nine and was delighted. Back nine brought me back to earth. Hole 18 is borderline unfair. No way to accurately approach the green, you can't even see it..Still, I love this Trac...Great deal thru Golf Now helped.

Spectacularly Designed Course

This is a beautifully designed course. Clubhouse is top notch and the staff is friendly and appropriately attentive for a course of this level. It is the second half of the season so the greens are not quit what they were a month or two ago but this is still one of the best courses in Chicagoland.

So so. Would play again, but...

Rained night before and morning of. Can’t judge by that. Experience wasn’t helped by the 2 we were paired with. I’ll just stop at that.
