Great staff, meh course

My dad and I went golfing two days after it rained and the course was still full of water. the course is poorly maintained compared to other courses in the area. Don't go in the fall unless you want to never find your ball among the leaves or water spots. Will probably never play here again unless it is the dead of summer after a 2-week drought.

Your round was purchased thru Golfnow and funds paid to them. We do not take prepaid rounds. Contact Golfnow and inform them you were rained out. Lincoln Oaks has the areas greatest rain policy. Do not finish 9 holes you get voucher back to play 18 Good anytime. Play 10 or more holes we give you voucher for nine holes! When booking and paying thru golf now you are getting a trade round and they receive your money. We do not get one penny of that. Contact Mark Haines at 708 372 2704 and I will make sure Golfnow gets you your money back. Most golfers that Pre pay thru Golfnow do not realize that it is a trade time and Lincoln Iaks does not receive any of your payment. Just wanted to clarify what you need to do and the 1 rating is unjustified. Good luck and look forward to clarifying and helping.

Great layout of a course. You need to be accurate because the other fairways run along each other so you will either be on a another fairway or someone on yours

Poor conditions

The course overall is in bad shape. The tee boxes are brutal, some of the greens don’t have any grass, and on top of that you have no clue how far away you are because some trees don’t have the yardages on them. The staff was friendly and some of the fairways were in decent condition, but that’s about it. There are plenty of better courses nearby for the money.

Very nice course overall.
The only improvements I would like to see would be some of the bare areas around the greens patched a little better, and if there was better signage for directing to the next hole. There are a lot of streets to cross and the layout can get a little confusing.
Overall, an excellent value for the price. If either of those two minor complaints were fixed, this would be a 5 star course imo.
