Great Little 9 Hole Course
I played the course on both a Tuesday and a Thursday. I really enjoyed both rounds. It is not extremely tough but can be challenging. My wife will join me out there next season as she is just getting started yo play and this course is perfect to learn on. Nice people and not expensive.
Found this course later in the year and enjoyed playing it with my father. The warm and welcoming staff in the pro shop made it a very enjoyable first-time visit. This course will definitely help you improve your game and can serve as a great place to work on your swing. What I enjoyed most was the relaxed, non-snobby attitude I have seen at other courses. Thank you for a great round.
Slow play no one managing tee times
This is a nice family short course especially for walkers. However my wife and I walked it today and it took 2:15 minutes. They let singles, doubles and 4 some s out with beginner playing out of another's bag. Probably will not go back. It was very hot walking but should have not been a issue with some pace on the course. Singles on a busy day should always be paired up on a busy day period. Beginner should be on the driving range on a busy day not on the course.
Could be in better condition!
Should be cheaper so you can bring family to learn to play.
Greens in poor condition.
Unable to find balls due to rough being so long.
A Gem of a course for casual/family play
Sporty 9 hole layout with an additional fun 9 hole pitch & putt course. Driving range, chipping green and practice putting green. The staff is super friendly and helpful. If you can work around the leagues and peak times you can play in about an hour! Oddly, Saturday and Sunday mornings are usually quite open, when suburban courses are over booked!
5 CHALLENGING par 3's.
Fun course for Sr's, kids and moderate skilled golfers. Good iron practice for advanced golfers.
As a NIU student, I played this course very often. It is not a very challenging course but you can't beat the price. It is definitely a walkable course which only costs 10-12 bucks. I would recommended is after work if you want to get a quick 9 in. Usually in good condition too.
