decent course - surly staff

The course overbooked players vs. carts even though they tell you you can get you own for 10$. I literally had to argue with the guy in the pro shop about an extra cart. He grudgingly gave it to me. I golf to relax and get away from stress and hassles so to start off the round like that was less than ideal. The course is decent with greens in good shape. The other staff were friendly. In spite of the yahoo in the pro shop it was still better than working :)

Improved greens and traps

Tuckaway had some serious issues in years past, but it has improved 100%. The greens are in great shape now, and the sand traps are better (sand in them). The lawout is challenging and warrants good course management. Would recommend anyone to play there. Good value for your money.

Improved greens and traps

The course has improved greatly since a couple years ago. The greens are in great shape, and the traps are manicured with sand in them now. The tee boxes appear to be under repair right now, but the fairways are in better shape than before. Would recommend this course to anyone.

Maintenance

Nice course and has been in the best shape I've seen in a while. Today, there were two problems - several of the tees had little to no grass. Greens had been aerated so difficult to putt - I wish courses would let us know via web site and various booking services when aeration was done.

Great Value

Tuckaway is a fun course. Most holes have a very open layout with a few trees lining the wide fairways, but the greens are very small and crowned. The course is very playable for the beginner but the greens make it challenging enough to keep better players interested. Fairways and rough are spotty but at $38 for a weekend morning is still a great value if you're willing to make the 45 minute drive from downtown Chicago.
