Good course

Despite cold and windy weather, the course played pretty well. Would like to play again in better weather conditions. Staff was nice and course was in pretty good shape for late October, though some of the tee boxes were sketchy and needed TLC.

The layout is outstanding. Sure there are some rough spots but they are easily overlooked when viewing the course in its entirety. Chris and Max in pro shop are great.

A true classic

I've been wanting to play this course my whole adult life and finally did today. Yes, it's not in impeccable shape, yes the clubhouse is shut down, yes the rough is a little long but...it's still an amazing track. You hit shots here that you don't on regular Joe blow courses. Play the Whites at 6300 yds and you are in for a tough but fair challenge. The greens run true albeit certainly slower than when it was private I'm sure. If you haven't played it and have wanted to, just do it. For the cost you won't be disappointed.

Good value

This is probably the fifth or sixth time I’ve played this course. It’s really a good value for the money. The layout of the course is great. The conditions are OK you can tell they just don’t have major funding to put in the facilities. But the course itself is in good shape and plays well. They seem to be struggling with staffing because it’s a real skeleton crew for food and beverage. But the staff was really nice and did a great job.

Legendary Course but not maintained

This was once one of the best Clubs in the south suburbs. Unfortunately it will probably disappear in another year. The bunkers are not maintained, the fairways are bare, Tee boxes are not well marked and not manicured. Such a shame. You can’t get food, not even a hot dog. I’m glad I got to play the course cuz it’s a gem. Someone needs to come in and give it some TLC.

Beautiful Donald Ross Course. Nice tight fairways, with 3-4" lush rough.

Fast greens and sand traps had plenty of soft sand.

Much better condition as compared to last year.

Some tee boxes were beat up pretty bad, but overall worth the 60 mile drive to get to a fine old style course.
