Super slow

If you want to play a normal pace this is not your course. So many new golfers playing with no experience or golf etiquette. Very frustrating!!

The Right Manager makes a Big difference

Played here last year and it was absolutely terrible. Tee times stacked together, slow pace and over all not very good. Well this year totally different because Mike the manager was totally in control not the players. He was at the first tee box instructing who would be playing with each other. He moved people gracefully and was in total control. He also checked you in and when I finished my round he was washing a cart in the back. Wow! where have you been all these years. Anyway I would definately play here again because now the course is in control. The fairways were not bad for this time of the year and the green were good. Pace of play was good because of the manager Mike getting players off right and in a timely manner.

Value play.

Value play course within driving distance of Chicago!

Good conditions and approachable course. Pretty open with short hole lengths. If driver is going well, good shots to approach and make good scores.

It’s not a super pretty course or challenging for advanced players but for someone like me learning, it’s open and super inviting.

Hole 5 is the hardest , approaching with iron is wise!

Great Staff

Special thanks to the two staffers working the check-in and carts They were extremely patient and professional as they adeptly handled a shortage of golf carts before our tee time. Course pace was brisk and the condition of the course was fine but the aerating of the greens caused them to be a bit bumpy.
