Length 6290 yards
Slope 130
Rating 71.1

Crane's Landing Golf Club is the centerpiece of Lincolnshire Marriott Resort. Designed by George Fazio, the course winds across 110 acres of preserved woodlands. It is a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary that offers stunning views of the Des Plaines River nearby. At just over 6,300 yards, the golf course is not particularly lengthy but it still offers some formidable challenges. Water is a prominent feature of the course with ponds and a winding river coming into play on 12 holes. The greens are small and raised and the sculpted fairways are tightly lined with mature trees, demanding accuracy off the tee. Crane's Landing Golf Club's back nine is especially difficult thanks to the river, which runs along the entire left side of the 13th hole and also appears on no. 17, the course's longest hole.

If you like pin point shot accuracy , this is your course

Played here first time , should have looked at layout more closely ! Not a long course , but water came into play around 75% of holes . I have heard course has always had problems with flooding , and this year was no exception . front 9 was in nice shape , back had a few holes where ground was under repair. Greens were in good shape for winter time . Over all , an interesting course , check layout before you play . Looking forward to playing again.

Course is improving

I've played here a number of times this year and the course was in sad shape from some spring flooding. They have resodded several areas and it's coming along nicely. Greens are excellent.

Bad Shape

Pace of play terrible, very slow, we waited on every shot. Played 13 holes and quit.
Fairways soggy with standing water.
Many ,many bare areas on the fairways.
Used to play this course on a weekly basis a decade ago when it was in pristine shape. It's a shame that Crane's Landing has deteriorated in this manner.

This course is a real challenge, fairly narrow fairways and mounded greens. Will definitely play again.
