Great Chicago Park Course
This might be the best Chicago park district course in the city. Very nice course, somewhat challenging, well kept. The wind off the lake is pretty rough (not the course’s fault).
Golf Visitors Paradise in Chicago!
My golf buddy’s short visit to Chicago for the first time. Great place to include golfing on a short trip to Chicago! Excellent course condition & layout!
Angry Little Man Starter
Have played this course for years, always slow and a tad expensive for what it is, but it’s in the city and usually relaxing and you know what you’re in for, so hard to complain.
Until this past weekend. I won’t go into the details, but had the absolute rudest starter I have ever witnessed, yelling in peoples faces, shaking a finger in their face, boiling mad, absolutely insane. You would have thought he was a small child being put in timeout for the first time. Insane
This course has hostile and aggressive staff and patrons to anyone who doesn't shoot from the blue tees and walk. If you don't want people to use the yellow tees, why have them? 3rd time having issues here. I will never be back. Staff yells at you for "coaching" when you're giving someone a pointer on their footwork, but has no problem with people who take 5 minutes practicing before every single shot. The course is a joke. Terrible condition. The only god thing about this place is it's central location.
Great course. You can't beat the sun coming out of the lake. Some tee-boxes really need attention.
The starters needs to pay more attention to having singles join up when available.
Needs Better Accommodations
Played Marovitz for the first time, and though I liked the course, it is lacking in basic amenities. In the men's room, signs are posted that several toilets are closed because of a falling ceiling. The clubhouse looks like it hasn't been renovated in decades. The course is always crowded, so there are people waiting at the first tee, but there are no benches for them. Zero. Can the Chicago Park District find a few benches and/or picnic tables? The greens were in good shape, and though the fairways were dry from lack of rain they were still playable. This is the busiest course in Chicago, so I would hope that the Park District can make some improvements.
