Formerly Oak Meadows Golf Course, The Preserve at Oak Meadows reopened in 2017 with a new name and following extensive renovations over a two-year span. Formerly a 27-hole layout on 288 acres, the transformation was a conservation and recreation project by the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County that took the 1920s-era design and modernized it for drainage and environmental sensitivity. From a playability standpoint, conditions will be more durable in the face of flooding, while eco-friendly highlights include improved water quality within Salt Creek, increased local flood relief by 20 million gallons and the enhancement of an environmental refuge for both golfers and wildlife.

COURSE AND STAFF

The gentleman in the Pro Shop at 3:00 Monday
afternoon was very helpful and took care of me right away…The course was in great shape l think the
Greens need some cosmetic up keep..too many
ball marks..I’m surprised that golfers seeing how nice the course is that they would want to repair ball marks and divots..l myself fixed marks and divots and they weren’t mine..l came from ORLAND PARK and I’ll be back..thanks for a wonderful time..Matt

Greens

I just played the course on Tuesday. The course is awesome but unfortunately the greens are something to be desired. They are NOT well maintained as they should be for the price. Every putt on every green was like going over landmines... for some reason they are not rolling the greens. I've spoken to other golfers and they have said they same thing when they have there this year.

Find a golfnow deal, they are way overpriced

Friday was the only day that we could play, and they were pretty full. So we each coughed up the $80 plus an additional $20 for cart fees. I cannot stress enough that the price is way too high. This is not a $100 course by a long shot. You can play Blackstone for $79.

They got my money, and that's fine as we had a good time, and the course was in good shape. I will not return for those prices tho. 100's of other courses in northern IL far cheaper for the same basic layout and no cart girl.

Great Course

This is a fun, challenging and well conditioned course. Greens were a little slow but receptive. My only complaint is too many “ding dongs” on the cart for advertising and coming in to a restricted area.

Frost Delay

Only feedback is to stagger tee times upfront. There was a rather long frost delay to get started. Other than that pace of play was excellent, and the course was in great shape!

Challenging but fun course

First time playing here! The pace of play for myself as a single was three hours! I’m sure it being 47’ helped. Overall great experience, none of the on course food options were open when I initially started but otherwise it was a fun tough course.
