City Golfing

It's the only 18 hole course in the city.. Staff is friendly, there was no cart attendant on Sunday and without a turn near the club house you can get hungry/thirsty. Its average at best but allows you to get a round in without traveling to the burbs. I would recommend to a friend with the above qualifications.

Love Jackson but 3 hour back 9?!?!

Typical Jackson Park. Friendly, decent condition, etc. Surprise to have a 2 hour front 9 but was followed by a 3 hour back 9. Simply makes it less fun. A simple ranger than runs about would make this course soooo much better.

Just Okay

I would say you get what you pay for with a municipal course, but the price isn’t that great. Almost $50 for 18 with a cart, and you get a poorly-maintained course with cement bunkers. Just about every green has a narrow entrance with terrible bunkers on each side. Constantly feels like you’re hitting off concrete. Several rat’s nest holes with balls flying in from golfers on other holes. People walking and on carts makes for awkward pace of play. Goose poop and broken glass. Vagrants on the course trying to sell you balls or just yelling at you. Back-to-back par 3s and 5s. Very likely to get paired with a goofball golfer with poor etiquette. All of that being said, you could argue $50 for 18 holes in a big city is a good deal, despite the annoyances.

Terrible experience

We only played 9 holes when it started to rain. When we came to the club house and asked can we get a rain check ,she said no, because rain was in the forecast. Then she left and we wanted to buy some beer while we waited to see if it was going to clear up, and she was no where to be found. So we just left, all this for $95 for 2. totally unacceptable.

Windy weather
Used cart

JPARK 2021

The most expensive cart fee that I've seen -- $18 per person. That's $36 just for 1 cart for a two-some group. A mix of walking golfers and riding golfers complicates the pace of play.
Hard and soft dirt/bare spots throughout the course. Fairways were mostly clear of leaves. Greens looked good.
Please consider trimming back the bushes, trees, shrubs on all sides at the crossing on East Marquette Drive, on the way to the 4th hole/17th hole.

Carts not included!

This is my third year with Golf Now. I’ve used the app countless times. Today was the first time that I had to pay a total of $30 extra for two cart fees that were not included. I’ve never seen a cat not be included, so I was completely caught off guard. I am not a very happy golf now member.

Good Value

Fairly well maintained city course. Bunker play leaves something to be desired.

Classic city course

This is a historic city course with amazing views of Lake Michigan and the Jackson Park marina area. . Very well maintained and friendly staff. Pace of play is more relaxed than most courses, which is my preference since I’m still working on my game.
