Bartlett Hills Golf Club has been a favorite Chicagoland golf destination since it first opened in 1929. To keep the layout up to modern standards, it has undergone many changes over the years but it still has the same classic character. At 6,463 yards from the back tees, this traditional layout might not be long but it still provides a fair test. Rather than distance, the golf course demands smart play and accurate shot placement thanks to narrow, tree-lined fairways and several tricky doglegs. You might not have many chances to use your driver but you'll definitely get some iron practice. There isn't too much trouble off of the tees at Bartlett Hills G.C. But greenside you'll be faced with nearly 30 strategically placed bunkers and water hazards come into play on seven holes, which include some forced carries.

Nice Course

For a Friday afternoon pace of play was slow. Waited at each hole. This was the only issue. Greens were running fast which is nice to see

Nice course

Geeens quick for being heavily sanded. Many holes on slopes which adds to challenge. Only drawback is many tee boxes are heavily worn and dried out, making teeing a challenge at times. Will be back though.

Meh...

Greens freshly aerated no warning. Tons of sand that made it frustrating. The turn was closed way earlier than it should be. Just a public course...1 ea.

Fun Round

The weather was perfect so no matter what, you had to enjoy yourself. The pace of play was slower than normal because there was one foursome that backed everyone up. the grreens had been recently aeorated so they were not as good as they normally are.

Solid place to play

This is one of our go to courses. They always seem to have some decent tee times open even when we book late. The course is somewhat challenging and always in good condition. Nice combination of tricky holes mixed in with some long and straight ones. The pace of play on this particular round was not good, but I'll attribute that to a couple of knucklehead groups ahead of us. The ranger did try to move them along multiple times. Overall good experience.
