Try another course

We went to this course for the first time and we were forced to play with 2 randoms that have never played before or knew golf etiquette. I understand with the size of the course they want to make sure pace of play keeps up but man it made 9 holes feel like we almost played 18. Also, no beer or alcohol beverages was a drag that should have been told on their site. Would recommend to go to the other Chicago golf courses over this one.

Great Course But,

With the slow rate of play, the porta potty was a nice touch. Even with Covid-19 it’s still needed. Too bad management decided to remove the portable toilet.

Quick 9 round of golf

Easy and quick round of golf. For a city course it’s well maintained even with so much rain. Good course for beginners.

Pure

For the price, there’s no better track within 30 miles. I had no expectations but for $14… the track was pristine. Challenging course but forgiving and unique.
