Mistwood on Windy Day

First time playing Mistwood. 5 stars all around. It was windy & cold out, but the course was in great shape. Challenging holes with 20mph winds. Our group is looking forward to playing again when it's 70 & sunny. Incredible layout & an experience every Midwest golfer needs to enjoy. Pints n burgers in the pub were top notch as well. Slainte to Mistwood!

PACE: Went out early and moved so well I caught the grounds crew (nice guys). I've played here when the pace is slow. Given its popularity/difficulty it was nice to come in under 4 hours, but isn't something I would expect.

CONDITIONS: Greens were aerated a few days before I played, BUT the course called and left me a voicemail informing me of this. Classy move, thank you! Mistwood is always in great shape... go enjoy!

STAFF: So they called me to inform me the greens had been aerated. After catching up to them the grounds crew was friendly and accomodating. The starter was very helpful as well. Great service all around!

VALUE: It costs a few dollars more than your typical course, but given the quality of the course and the quality of their range/practice facilities, go aheard sn splurge.

LAYOUT: Holes 14 thru 16 are the ones you'll remember, but holes 1 thru 13 are great too. It would be nice to see some of the trees around 17 and 18 just fall over. :)

Love this course!

This is a great golf course and would play it more frequently if it was closer to where I live. Staff is awesome, the course is pretty, and in good shape. I would definitely recommend it.

Checks all the boxes

Highly recommend Mistwood. They want you to have a country club experience and they deliver on all fronts. 4 stars and recommend. I deducted a star because we were waiting on every tee box from 5th hole on. Ranger did his best to keep things moving but our round was at .least 4.5 hours Our foursome had balls ending up in divots 4 times. Course just gets way to much play and they have so many members now it's difficult to get a decent tee time. The locker room for a club of this caliber is very small....has one shower and the carpet in that areas is a gross smelly sopping wet mess.

Great Golf

The course is a gem and would recommend for all to play it. Looking for a place that has great putting green as well as driving range and chipping area then look no further. Great golf course with a wonderful staff that tends to your every need!

What a hidden Gem

The first time I played this last year I thought wow what a beautiful place but what a hard course. Then i played it again after knowing where the trouble is and it was fantastic. Greens are great. It feels like a Country club. We teed off at 3 pm and finished in just under 4 hours. The course is much easier the second time you play. I swear it feels like you are in England when you pull in. Great facilities. We stayed and ate at the restaurant. Great food and many draft beers to choose from. We are definitely coming back to play more.

Great course. Great service.

A very challenging course.
Lots of water.
Undulating fairways.
It’s important to keep it in the fairways. Most holes are lined with tall grass.
There are deep sod bunkers at some holes so be sure to bring your sand game.
Very challenging.
You do have a choice of tees so even short hitters have a chance.
My favorite in the Chicago area.
Full bar and restaurant with great food and a fine selection of frosty cold beverages.

Fun course but extremally tight for some players. This was the first time playing Mistwood. I would enjoy playing again now that I know where the trouble is located and proper club selection.

Beautiful course in great shape

Course was in very good condition, despite a very rainy, cold week prior. Staff is friendly and helpful. I play here often (at least 8 times a season). The pace was good the day we played, not much waiting around. Moderate difficulty. Wind was very challenging on that day.

Great Course!!

The course was in great shape. The day was pretty windy so felt like I missed out on how amazing of a course Mistwood is but you could tell the work that went into building this phenomenal golf course. I would definitely go back on another day.

Great Course & Amienties

Enjoyed playing Mistwood & from North Suburbs, I usually bring a group with me.
Great course layout and staff & amenities are 5 stars.

Only negative each time I bring a group is the greens being being bumpee & need to be rolled .

Not a hidden gem but wish it was not.

One of the top golf course in the south suburbs is becoming too popular. Mistwood is an excellent golf track that is only exceeded by the quality of the pro staff and the employees that seem to love working there. Besides a great course it has all of the amenities that you would see at a private country club. The practice area is great, the bar is friendly and welcoming and the performance center has everything you need. The only drawback is that since more people are finding out about this course - there are fewer opportunities to play as the tee sheet gets filled quickly.

One of the best in SW suburbs

This is one of the best public clubs in the Chicago area. The facilities and restaurants are just as good as the course. Before our round we were told they had aerated about a week earlier but you would never know it. The greens were slick and true. The tall fescue was recently cut which was a blessing since I was a bit wild. Even though it's OB at least I was able to find a couple of the snap hooks I had. The experience is as advertised, Public Course with Country Club experience.

Excellent overall facility

I hadn't been there in a few years so seeing the new facilities was very nice. Everything is well done. Course in very good shape, greens fast. Only issue is that the warm up is off mats instead of grass. Other than that an excellent public course experience.

A new favorite

Great course in great condition run by staff that are down to earth and friendly. Great value too

Challenging course - water on 3/4 of the holes and penalizing rough and some narrow landing areas. The kind of place that you can hit a 300+ yard drive +/- wind and still bogey.

For 16 holes the course is perfect... they just need to cut down some trees off the tee on 17 and 18. :)

Great layout. Conditions are always top notch. Greens may have been the fastest I've played anywhere this year. Bunkers were perfect.

Had issues with pace of play on a prior visit, no problems this day.

When recommending this course I always suggest arriving early (90-ish minutes) to take advantage of their range and short game practice area (and their bar is excellent too).

Great course. Just need 2 trees to the left of 18 tee to fall over.

Great experience at Mistwood!

This was our group's first time at Mistwood and every aspect of it was exceptional. The staff is outstanding and anticipates needs. Free and easy with recommendations and helpful with answers to questions. The course was great. The facilities are wonderful. The restaurant was a crown jewel. We drove an hour and a half to get there and won't hesitate to do it again!
