Good Value

Veterans Memorial is a pretty solid course, with potential.to be really good if the greens and tee boxes were better taken care of. Great layout and fast greens. The cart girl is suoer friendly, and the pace of play is good. I enjoy playing here, and i will be back..especially if a Hot Deal for $35 with cart pops up again.

Great course layout, some condition issues

I have always loved the layout of this course. Unfortunately some of the greens, particularly on the front 9, are not in the best shape.
Still a fun course with plenty of challenges.

This is an excellent club

I played Veterans memorial quite often. Is a very good, well mantain and reasonably priced golf course. Jim (who is the person in charge in the mornings) always takes care of the players and get certain that they can go out and have fun. Bunkers are really good, and so are the greens. Some of them are quite challenging, but hey, that's the nature of the game. A lot of veterans play there so, I get to say thank you for your service, quite often. Keep the good work guys!

Solid Public Course

Veteran’s Memorial is a solid public course with character. The staff is friendly on the phone and in the club house. This spring has been unseasonably dry which has resulted in a few dry greens but other than that the course is in good playing condition. Plus the price is very reasonable. I’m glad I found this course and I will continue to play there with my friends and family.

The front 9 is pretty straightforward, the back 9 requires strategy. Nice changes in elevation.

Great value

For $40 which includes cart, this is the best test of golf for the money in Chicagoland. Sure, it’s not perfectly groomed, but the greens are in good shape and a couple of good rainy nights and the course will play well this summer.

Honoring our Dads!

Came out to play and honor our dads that served and went to war for all of us. Joseph Gordon Creighton Navy, Richard Watt Castles (brother still alive) Lance Corporal Marines, James Noelle Castles Air Force nose gunner B-52. Had to jump over Normandy. Made it out and passed away 5 years ago after a long good life. Golf was these officers passion and taught their children the game. We will be forever grateful for this gift, and for their service to defend and protect us all. Love this course and the servicemen we run into on the course. Thanks you for the beginning of our Memorial Day!
