Fox Run Golf Links opened in 1984 but over the past two years the course underwent a major renovation that made the layout both more challenging for serious players but also more forgiving for the recreational golfer. The multi-million-dollar renovation included enhancements to the hole layouts, redesigning the bunkers, installing a new irrigation system, and creating new practice and chipping areas. Water comes into play often throughout the golf course and you'll find elevation changes on nearly every green. The water holes will be especially tough if you have a tendency to slice the ball. Thanks to the varied layout, which includes some holes that are wide open and others that are more target-style golf, you will get the opportunity to work on different types of shots. Fox Run Golf Links is a challenging but fair test that players of all skill levels can enjoy.

Condition of General Play

Played this course on Sunday the 26th. Was very surprised at how dry and what poor shape the course was in. First off was told to grab a cart in front and was NOT cleaned by attendee. Even the scorecard from the last people was still on the cart. Garbage was in the back as well. Who aerates there greens in the middle of summer. I have been playing golf a long time and never seen a course aerates the green in the middle of June. Sure would of been nice if you were told this prior to your booking.

Brilliant course in very good condition. Accommodating to golfers playing Fox Run for the first time and hugely impressed with the layout, amenities, and scenery on the course. Overall, I think this is one of the better public & reasonably priced courses within the Chicagoland area.

Great public course

Very well maintained public golf course. Challenging but not impossible for beginners to intermediate players. Greens and fairways are in excellent condition. Good value for the money. New clubhouse is amazing and food service is excellent. I would highly recommend this course.

Not bad for early in the season

First off the new clubhouse looks great!
Course was ok considering all the rain & excessive heat.
Greens were on the slooooooow side.
Pace of play was great (18 holes in less than 3 hours)
Teed off around 12:30.
Decent course usually in better condition, I hope they get it back.
Could use another bartender.
