Usually a good time but….

I have played Foxford several time this season. Usually it is a great value. However, today it was very poor value. They charged full price, $80, for no amenities. Cart paths only, no food, no beverage cart, and just okay conditions. I love this course but I am very disappointed of the value of play today. If you are going to charge summer prices for fall golf then you should have all amenities open. Other courses in the area are charging far less and Foxford should adjust according. After all, summer has ended.

Beautiful course; poor amenities

The course was beautiful with challenging bunkers. However, for the price the bathrooms should have lighting (the door was left open because it was so dark), toilet paper and soap (and should also be clean). Also, for the price, there should be GPS. The pro shop staff was friendly. Play was very slow.

Great course: pricey though

This is a great course; however, to pay $80 and have no gps in carts is pretty tough to swallow.

Disappointed

I have played Foxford hills in the past, it is a an excellent course layout and a very challenging course. But my most recent visit was very disappointing. The pace of play was really bad, we did not see a Ranger the entire round. We played the front nine in two hours 15 minutes, but the back night took almost 3 hours to complete. In addition it was a very hot day, there was no cart person. Finally there was a huge delay at the turn to get beverages, making the pace of play even worse. The people serving us could not have been more uninterested, even the manager seemed to not even care. Very disappointing overall, will not return!

REPAIR YOUR PITCH MARKS

This is much more a review of patrons than the course. People, please, please, please fix your ball marks. Seriously an epidemic of pure laziness. Foxford is a great course and let's keep it that way. I will admit the grounds crew keep the course a little wet and the greens are susceptible to getting beat up, but do your part to mitigate it by fixing your ball marks. Consider it a reward for a good shot.

JUST GO PLAY THERE!

One of my favorite layouts in the Chicago area. Tees. fairways, traps, greens all in great shape. Fun routing of holes - lots of decisions on drive and placement on greens. Many greens slope from back to front so best be short.
