Course in pretty good shape for early fall and cheap to golf
Nice Public Course
Great course if you’re looking to get out for 9. Typically have tee times available and the course has been in good shape. Pretty easy course with no bunkers. Great for beginner golfers or anyone looking for a quick round.
Great Pace of Play for a Saturday
Lucked out as to pace as a bunch of foursomes cancelled around my tee time. Staff is always awesome here. Note: The SAND OR PAPER WASPS are starting to nest on the fairway on #8. These guys don’t sting you but they are huge, buzz you like a B-52 Bomber and make play difficult especially when your ball settles by a nest. Hopefully they get the exterminator out and mitigate this!!!
Best shape in years
All the rain has really benefited this course. We played 9 holes on a Friday afternoon in 2 hours and the greens look great. Nice job staff
Billy Caldwell (Daytime)
Booked a 10:20 teetime though golf now, checked in at 10. When I got there, two groups of 4 were waiting to tee off on one, all walk ins. I know this because golf now teetimes we’re completely open which is why I booked. About 10:10 is when I was ready to tee off, thinking at least one of the groups had gone, but no. I didn’t get to tee off until 10:42 (22 minutes after schedule). I asked the ranger (who kept freely booking anybody without observing the course) if he could upgrade me to a cart since I’m playing as a single and am 20+ minutes behind pace. He told me no, that I should have shown up 30 minutes early instead of 20. This dude was a complete joke. I’ll play any other 9 hole course in the city, but never this one again. This one sole Ranger completely ruined this course for me & I’ll never play it, nor recommend it to anybody because of this tool. 4 hour round to play 9 holes. Counted over 70 people out there. 72 can be on a course max at a time. This guy was completely ignorant to golf and it’s etiquette. Terrible course, should have listened to my buddies.
Pace of play decent for a Forest Preserve course. They’d make a killing if they sold beer. Great bang for your buck tho and the staff is nice. Course condition good as well.
Good for a Fairly Quick 9
Pace of play good for a Saturday. Course is in decent shape. Greens are in fine shape but there is some hard pan around the fairways. Great overall value however.
