About

Holes 9
Type Semi-Private
Par 36
Length 3535 yards
Slope N/A
Rating N/A

Located just an hour south of downtown Chicago, White Hawk Country Club offers 36 holes of championship golf. The holes are divided into four nines called Red Hawk, Grey Hawk, Black Hawk, and Silver Hawk. The Grey Hawk nine was one of the first nines built back when it was just an 18-hole golf course. It's the second longest of all the nines at 3,535 yards from the back tees, but it's still much shorter than the 3,846-yard Silver Hawk Course, which is White Hawk's toughest layout. Grey Hawk has a traditional links-style layout with strategically placed bunkers and water hazards coming into play throughout. In addition to the four golf courses, White Hawk also has a practice facility with a driving range that has target greens and a short game area with a bunker.

72° = 5 hours 15 minutes

I know it was a nice day here in November, but a course with this many holes and options should not have taken over 5 hours on a Thursday. Not a ranger in site for the entire round. When you stack 2 and 2 and 4 and 2 and 4 and 2 on top of each other that's what happens. Here's an idea make some foursomes with all the two. Well I can say I played it once, that's enough for me... not heading back anytime soon.

Always worth a play

This course is always a joy to play. It can be difficult but fun if you are hitting your ball. Will play this at least once a year.

Avoid the silver hawk, it’s a gimmick 9. This review is only for silver hawk.

The other 3 9’s at white hawk are beautiful. Avoid playing the silver hawk. It’s an absolute waste of time. The layout is just silly. You’ll be disappointed with how dumb the setup is. If your not a single digit handicap you’ll be frustrated with this 9.
