Could be worse
As I drove to the course I started worrying after reading some reviews online. Turns out those scrubs have never played municipal golf in Chicago. The bunkers were like clay, but tee boxes and fairways were fine. Based on the reviews I thought I was headed for an awful experience. Played in 4:10 minutes, but overall quality experience. Wasn’t very challenging though
After heavy rains day before course held up really nice but greens were horrible. Still had holes from air rating. Ball bounced when we putted.
Good value at a great price
The facilities are a bit run down. Cart paths not in great shape or kept up. The greens had recently been air-rated so it would not be fair to comment on greens. The course was in good shape. Many sand traps have no sand.
A good course spoiled
Super slow greens with damaged areas. The slopes and angles on the greens make the holes challenging and if the course were kept in good repair, they would be something to brag about.
The round was slow due to three foursomes booked for 7am.
The snacks are pathetic/nonexistent. The clubhouse looks like it will fall over with a heavy wind. No signage to indicate where the parking lot is.
The fairways are not in great condition either. If you take a client or business prospect to this course to this course, yo will disappoint them.
This could be a really good course. It has the bones to be worth your time and money. Until someone puts in effort, this course will continue to be a $25 a round course that costs you over $50 to play.
Dont waste your time or money
Not sure if anyone has worked on the course maintenance since this course opened for the year. Greens were in terrible shape. Fairways were in bad shape.
Not to mention pace of play was poor due to two six-somes on the course. No cart girl. No food.
Not sure I’d come back here for free. Save your time and your money. Many better options to golf out there.
Save your money
What human being sends off a group of 5 and 8? I’ve never seen that till now. I’m not the greatest, but when people can’t hit their ball past the ladies tees, they stick around a congregate. Instead congregate hit. Don’t send a group of 5 or more on the weekends when it’s busy. I get it, it’s busy and can’t do anything when everyone is on top of one another, but can’t have groups of 5 or more. C’mon use your brain. Staff is slow. I could finished my round by the time we had or drinks and the bunkers are terrible. Save the money and go somewhere else. Ain’t worth it.
Greens are awful
Not sure what they did to these greens but it looks like they aerated the green and it hasn’t healed. I’ve never seen a course is such bad shape. Honestly the maintenance crew should be embarrassed.
There were two groups of 8 HS kids jamming the entire course up, no ranger, workers didn’t seem to care.
Great course if you’re looking to drink heavily and don’t care about the quality of the greens.
A value course
This was the first time I played this course. I would say it’s a value course, meaning you get what you pay for. The Fairways are narrow, fairly close to each other, the tee boxes are narrow as well. If you want to play 18 At a fairly inexpensive rate than this is the course for you. The bunker sand was fairly hard, the fairways and Roughs were well-maintained. The staff was friendly, not too many amenities, and you have to use a porta John.
Decent Course, Poor Maintenance
The course itself was decent, though a lot of the holes are on top of each other. There were back-to-back par 3's on the back 9, which I have never seen before. It was also hard to tell most fariways from the rough, as they had the same cut. Greens were hard and poorly managed. Some greens had divots, and all looked like the had just been aerated, but then left alone with no maintenance. I'd like to chalk it up to it being very early in the golf season, so I will update my review if conditions change the next time I'm back
Course is in terrible shape.
This course shouldn’t even be listed on golf now. It needs major work. The club house is still closed and the building looks like its about to fall over. The fairway grass is almost the same as the rough so it is hard to tell where some holes even go. The greens are the worst I’ve seen. They are so aerated that its like a checker board and makes putting impossible because your ball bounces off the little holes. Spend the extra $20.00 and go to a better course.
