Cheap Chicago City Course

I will be upfront, I like this course for the for the fact it's about $17 to $20 with pull cart that is a nice walk without being overly difficult or complicated. Most balls, even bad hit shots, have a good chance of being in play. Honestly what is wrong with that? I don't always need crazy greens to putting creeks 75-100 yards from the green. When you want to work on shot making and increasing consistency of hitting it properly, this is perfect. Let alone good opportunities for the short-game as well.

The only main negative is the condition of the fairways can be suspect in spots. It's a cheap course, and it shows at times. The greens and bunkers are usually fine, but the fairways are mix. That said, it's $17 to walk without a pull cart on a weekday. And they don't have annoying league night every day where you have to get one by 3:30, or 6:00pm. That is the only negative that stands out, but for a decent 2 hour round on foot, this works well.

Most Improved

The course is Most Improved over what the offering was with the last company that managed it. Greens, are in almost excellent shape and run fast and true. Fairways are cut and blown like I play in N.C. area. will be my new practice course for this year.

Decent Course for the Money

This is a wide open, easy 9-hole course. It's a great spot to play if you're just starting out or not very good. I'm average, but just needed something easy and quick and it worked perfectly for that.

There's not much personality to the course or the greens, but again, it's golf and it won't challenge you too much if you're learning or not great at the game which is most of us.

Beginner’s Course

This curse is wide open so very suitable for a beginner. The tee boxes could be a little more well kept but the fairways are pretty good and the greens are nice. Definitely a fun course to play 9 on.

Good

Exactly what you'd expect from a 9 hole course in Austin. For the price and location it isn't bad, but if you go a bit higher on expenses it would be worth it to go elsewhere.

1st tee of the 2021 season. Course was in good condition. Great for beginners to intermediate players. Pace was slow due to the beautiful weather. Will be returning since I am still beginner.

Open course

This course was very VERY open and flat. Not a bad thing for newer golfers but not much of a challenge for better golfers. Played with my wife who’s a beginner and had fun, but would only go back to play with her.

This course is very straight forward, literally. There is one par five, and it is the only hole that isn’t completely straight. The course conditions are great, however pace is slow (2 hours for a single). Good place to go if you want to practice hitting the ball straight, haven’t played much, or are a beginner. Best hole is either 7 or 8 (both par 3s).
