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.

Disappointed

Kind of burned out, no water, no ball washers, traps uneven and a strange front vs. back 9. Someone else mentioned the water smells.. and it does. A picture of the on course bathroom.

Good Hot Deal Course

At this point I would only recommend Cranes Landing as a last minute ‘Hot Deal’ for <$50. Because of lack of play the greens are ok, but the rest of the course really needs some TLC.
It’s really too bad; a few years ago when it was a true resort course it was a really nice track with small, elevated & well protected greens along with tight bent grass fairways. It was a short but challenging course that required all of your clubs & every shot.
Hopefully they put some money into it & return it to its former self.

Fire on the crew

Greens keeper must be new. Maybe it’s money, not sure. The course can be nice but lack of maintenance and knowledge.

Go somewhere else

This is one of the worst courses I have ever played. Half the course is dirt. Interesting strategy to have dirt patches on the greens. All of the water smells like farts. There is no way this course will be around much longer. I wouldn’t play it again for free.
