A lot pricy

Simple review: Would I golf here again? Yes.
For $90? No!
I like the course. Some sweeping fairways. Great greens. The bunkers were well manicured.
It’s a private course transitioning to public golf. Strange anamoly… they have a driving range. “For members only”. Way to make me feel less welcome.

Older Layout stands up

Older course that stands upwell.
Some of the best greens in the area are the courses primary defense. Fast but true roll caught some off guard.
Not a long course, except the most of the Par 3's.
Nice track, I'll be back to.

What a Beautiful Place!

What a treat. A private course on Golf Now that truly delivers. Played last Wednesday with my spouse and another couple and the staff in the Pro Shop made us feel like members. The staff kindly repeated their rules on cart restrictions and proper dress attire before we tee’d off. We were hoping for a classy golf experience and were willing to pay for it, so we were happy to learn that they were serious about their standards before we started. We hoped this would carry on with the course conditions, and there was no disappointment! The best greens and fairways we have played in the Chicagoland area all year for sure. Blind shots, dog legs, challenging Par 3’s. We saw a lot of members walking and they even have caddies on the weekends. A very special day on a great special course and to top it off we had diner outside on the patio looking over the Fox River as boats were going by. What’s not to like… can’t wait to go back!

As I am reading the reviews yes the course is so so challenging, the greens suck for a country club. They are camo. Not well kept . Again women's tee book was not well kept unless they were a couple yards from the men's which was basically most of them.
One hole had the green in the fairway, what? I've been playing about 10 years and have been all over, worst experience ever and it's basically in my backyard.

Sexist

Got married here 5 years ago if I knew what I know now, would never have. " Men Day" Wednesdays, are you kidding me, it's 2021. Back in the day fine, but today? Then the ranger asked if we knew where we were going, I said yes your scorecard is great I can read a map. He said "wow the first time he heard women actually knows north, west, south, east." Are you kidding me again. We've been to many country clubs and collared shirts for women have never been a rule, golf shirt yes, no denim yes but my SIL had to feel degraded by a bunch of 14-15 year olds. Teaching them sexism young I see. Men only day Wednesday. I have never felt so unwanted. I'm a proud American women, never have I ever felt less worthy than today at McHenry Country Club

Won't play here again

Played with my business partner and his girlfriend for his birthday. Had another golfer come up to us to tell my friends Girlfriend she needed to cover up her gold dress and then she put on another shirt at the turn (one in which she has worn at numerous other, much more prestigious courses, Whistling Straits for one) and the starter drove out and told her she needed to change because someone tattled. Meanwhile another lady had the exact same shirt on and no one had any issue with that her. Seems like they don't want the public to play their course.

Good Course Depending on Price

Greens are always in good shape. Course is too. A little steep when it gets over the 60 dollar range. But the grill is nice, the staff is friendly. Tight, short and can be challenging. Usually a 3 hr round if you're a quick player.

Great Course

We used to be members of this CC but left years ago. Looking forward to returning to our old CC, we were greeted by the Starter who made us feel a little unwelcome. Would not let us use the Practice range which I thought was a little over the top. Pointed us to a Net for practice.

They advertised becoming a member there which really looked attractive but this treatment could influence our decision.

Other than that, the course was in great shape, challenging and lighting fast greens. The inside lounge was beautiful! Nice upgrade from when we were there. I would consider being a member next year under the "Buddy" System. Thanks.

Excellent Course

The course was in excellent condition and played well, especially considering the rain during the course of the week. They do a good job in spacing tee times. I like having the practice area right across from the 1st tee box.
