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.

Fall golf

The conditions and cost were on par for fall season. Pace of play was good. Some greens were rough but to be expected in the time of the year.

Not really a resort type course. IMO

Tech deficient

Course is average but staff is pleasant. Carts do not have any technology so difficult to know distances. Especially difficult when wet and carts only on cart path so don't see markers other than 150 yard stick.

You get what you pay for

Rained a lot the day before but bad drainage system. Tee boxes in pretty bad shape. Was cheap, but likely not going back. Would pay more for a nicer course.

Gonna put in my course rotation.

For the end of a season,the course is in excellent shape. Layout is tight,and the rough is a tad long in some places ,as are most courses....I used a 3 wood instead of driver on most and stayed in the fairways. Greens are fast and smooth. Par 3's are a challenge, happy with bogey on a couple of them.. Overall a nice course for the price. super friendly staff!

Avoid

Used to be in good shape but it’s a mess now. Crowned tee boxes, gravel sand traps, dirt on tees and greens, and cups are on an angle. It’s not a nice course.

Early Round

Overall the round was good except for the back 9. There was a foursome a couple groups ahead of our group that played at a very slow pace and there was no marshal to make sure their pace was quicker. We played the front nine in 90 minutes but the back nine it took over two hours.

What happened!

Unfortunately for being a Resort course, its up keep and conditions have declined dramatically. At least 50% of the tee boxes and greens are in poor conditions, but the sand traps were surprisingly kept in good condition. I'm hoping that Covid has a lot to do with its up keep, but it could be one of those great ole tracks finally reaching its longevity in Chicago golf.

Ragged

As summer comes to a close it is obvious that this course is suffering from a lack of care. The tee boxes are nearly all chewed up and the greens have been badly neglected. If you can get out for a reasonable fee it is worth it but if paying full price, you’ll be disappointed.
