Back again!

With the Pandemic my regular foursome hasn’t played in over a year.. but it’s getting better, we all had both shots and couldn’t pass it up! Same super maintained course and great course! Couldn’t be happier to have been here again! Finally!

As we call it “Boone Creek Rough”

Course is always in great condition. Early spring golf and most of the course was in mid season form. Greens were a little long but as I said early spring.

A Sixsome? Really?

Course conditions were about what you'd expect for mid-December in northern Illinois. Greens had been recently sanded. We got through the first nine pretty easily, but when we went to make the turn, we'd found that a group of six had jumped in front of us and were in the fairway. They were loud and obnoxious, playing music and not golfing very well, so by the time we reached the tenth green their were two foursomes backed up behind us on the hole. I called the clubhouse, and "Rob", who answered the phone, thanked me and assured me that he'd take care of it? Guess what? He didn't do a dang thing and my group waited on every shot for the rest of the round. After playing the front in about an hour and forty-five minutes, it took nearly three hours to play the back, as we were treated to being spectators to the Meathead Open for the rest of the afternoon. We had two foursomes out to try the course and see if perhaps we'd be interested in buying memberships for next season, but if this is the way they go about their business out there, I doubt we'll be buying in at Boone Creek. In fact, I doubt we'll be back at all.

Sanded greens

Course in good shape for late in the year.. sanded greens but smooth and true as fine sand used (not granular). Able to putt with a decent read. Greens hard but tees not frozen so enjoyable day for Dec.
