Always fun and always a challenge
I really like Balmoral Woods because it is a challenging layout, but fair. If you hit good shots you can score.
Heard good things about the course but didn’t live up to the hype. With a 1 hour wait to tee due to frost, staff did not prepare properly when scheduling tee times. Poorly done and so am I with this course.
Unfortunately, I didn't get to play today. They had over an hour delay because of frost. They should have changed available tee times to later hours, now that the weather is getting cooler. I don't believe I would have finished before it got dark.
Three putt goal
Almost impossible hole locations for weekend play
Almost every four foot putt ended up being 12 feet past
Pace was slow with cart groups wAiting for groups waking
South side gem
The course is in great shape. The rough was a little thick. Lost a couple of balls. Greens were rolling good.
Somewhat challenging course but terribly maintained
The difficulty of the course is evident in the elevation changes, sloping greens, and narrow fairways lined with trees. I would have enjoyed the challenge had the course been well maintained, but unfortunately it was not. Tee boxes stiff, fairways littered with crabgrass, and greenside rough hard as rock. I wanted to like this course due to its novelty but unfortunately it did not live up to expectations. With so many great courses in the south suburbs of Chicago that are better maintained, I will not be returning here ever.
Good staff, great layout, poor course condition
I loved the layout, staff was excellent, but I was disappointed in the condition of the course. The tee boxes were nothing but crab grass. Fairways were burnout with significant amount of crabgrass and weed. With a little water and maintenance, the course would be excellent, and I would give it 5 stars. But unfortunately, in it's current condition, the course does not live up to it's ratings.
PICK A DIFFERENT COURSE
This course is horrible. It honestly ruined my Saturday and was my least enjoyable round this year and possibly ever. Buyer BEWARE.
The round took forever and we got through 8 holes in over 2.5 hours to start. The tee boxes are made of cement, you cannot place your tee in the ground, bring a hammer. The course layout is the worst part of this course. 90 degree angles on some fairways and trees in front of you on the tee box. The grass needs to be watered as it’s dying everywhere and is super hard throughout the course. There is also people everywhere and constantly in your fairway. Just an all around horrible layout of a course and at no value of a price. Stay as far away as possible from this course, it’ll ruin the game of golf for you.
