Fun

Fun Course Makes you play within yourself . No trying to overhit or you go out of bounds and loose your ball or onto other fairways possibly hit other Golfers .Greens and playing surface very good. Only reason I gave a 4 star was back tee box you hit off a mat, Wasn’t easy to get desired tee height.

Great value, almost always available

This isn't the best course in the area, but it's not trying to be and it's not supposed to be. It's a fun course with some good variety mixed in. Great place to practice your game. Priced fair and almost always has tee times available.

Course conditions were okay last time I went, but were good this day because of recent rains.

Better than just hitting the driving range

Super easy course... very short. Decently maintained. Tee boxes are off driving range mats.

Same old same old...

4000 yard course with tee mats. At least they put in twe markers if you want to hit off the grass, but the "tee boxes" were not manicured at all. It was like teeing from the rough. Greens were ok for being so early in the year. No amenities in the clubhouse. Can't blame covid on self serve. Not worth the 35 bucks for a broken cart. Rather play somewhere else for 5 bucks more..

Terrible service

Get your carts and staff in order. My group was told we needed to walk when there was 8 carts available the entire time. Clown show all around. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.

Waste of 40 dollars

Worst 40 dollars on golf ever spent. Course is a joke, and in terrible condition. It’s fine to not have a great course, but don’t charge that much to play it.

Nice day at Edgebrook Golf Course

It was fun to play a Cook County Forest Preserve golf course. It was in decent condition and the pace of play was good. It’s not a hard course so, it’s great for new players and people that just want to have a casual round of golf.

Good starter course

Decent quality for price. There could work on reopening the mid course booth and sell some food. I liked that you can purchase “rescue” golf balls there for a good price.

Edgebrook is Solid

Overall a great course for the money. Pace of play can get unusually slow, but that is more due to the short par 4’s and who is in front of you, rather than the course itself.

Awful

You tee off turf mats similar to a cheap driving range. The fairways are in terrible shape and the holes are short and crammed together. Several holes have trees over-hanging the tee box. Just in brutal shape. Not worth the money.

This course needs a lot of work. There are no grass tee boxes, instead they have astroturf mats, which are nearly impossible to hit off of. The greens and fairways need a lot of work. For the state that the course is in charging $45 is way to steep. I have played most of the forest preserve courses and this one by far is my least favorite.

Overpriced, terrible conditions

The course charged me for a power cart and did not tell me, so I paid for a pull cart. When I saw the price on my credit card, I called them, and they said the cart / walking rate is the same, so that they didn't overcharge. I tried to explain that I wouldn't have rented a pull cart if I had known I was charged for a power cart, but they were inflexible and would not refund the difference.

Generally, the course conditions are terrible, you tee of mats, the holes are crammed together, the design is plain. I think this course is really only a fit for someone who just got good enough to play something harder than a par 3 course. Other than that, you will have a terrible time. It was my least enjoyable round of the year.
