SLOW PLAY DUE TO COURSE'S BAD DECISION

The round was marred by extremely slow play because management allowed one or two groups of 6 or 8 playing scramble while selling tee times 8 minutes apart. Very disappointing . Additionally greens were in terrible condition. Beyond the remnants of aeration, they appeared to have been damaged by heavy play and no rolling or maintenance repairs. Such a disappointment to see this lovely course reduced to looking like an overplayed muni.

Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing Chalet Hills Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

One of my favorites!

I live in the city but Foxford and Chalet Hills are two of my favorite courses in Chicago. Chalet is a tough and unforgiving course but the layout and elevation changes make it unique. It probably has the biggest elevation changes in the area. It has 5-6 of the most picturesque and difficult holds in the area. On course conditions can vary and the greens can be a little rough at times, but the layout with the wooded backdrop makes this course an absolute gem.

Highway Robbery

The course was open to play the back 9 only without prior notice to golfers who pre booked a full round of golf. They just posted a notice at the main entrance and by that time it’s too late to cancel having driven an hour to get to the golf course. Front desk guy acted as if you are a nuisance to him as you enter the pro shop without even acknowledging your presence after giving him a warm greeting. The pro shop reeks and with foul smell and the restroom smells even worse. Had the chance to drive the cart through the front 9 when a golfing buddy leaving early needed a ride back to the parking lot and found no reason why the area has to be closed for play as all the fairways and greens at the front 9 looked immaculate without any activity of repair going on. Despite only half the course is available for play they accepted full bookings like as if the whole course is open creating too many golfers waiting at each tee box and rangers made round late in the day urging players to play faster like it was the customers fault for the slow pace. Just a terrible experience paying the full price to play half the course 2x. Not playing this course again despite the great condition of the golf course.

This course is a treat

Gorgeous course with lots of elevation change to make for some fun shots. Challenging but not overly so. For the price this is one of the best courses I've played in the north/nw Chicago area.

Great Course

I love this course , the layout and condition of the course was great. I didn't have any issues with the personnel they were all pleasant and helpful. I have played this course about 7 -10 times a year for many years even before they developed the lots around the course and really enjoy the facility throughout all the changes.

Great course

The course is great and if you ever get a chance go and play it.
The only reason why I writing about golfnow here it’s because there’s no where to write a review on them or ever get through the phone. A while back I had to cancel my tee time but never heard back from them, last week I had to cancel my tee time because my friends son was in the hospital again haven’t heard back from them and they never answer their phone and still using coronavirus as an excuse! Come on every one else either has gone back to the office or have people working from home stop using it as an excuse not to give people money back! I have been using golfnow for years but lately not worth it.

Chalet Hills

Everything was great minus the grounds crew was fixing the bunkers and basically following us the whole front 9 with the machines on and the blades on the cart path so it was very distracting to play. we eventually waited for them to pass us, after that it was perfect.
