Save this DONALD ROSS gem

Fall golf with a few leaves blowing, but near 70 degrees and sunny. All these years and never played before. Play Ravisloe nearby lots. Calumet is similar but better. LONG par three's are a blast. Nice dog legs both ways. Greens in great shape. Pro was very positive and wanted us back. Traps also groomed and enough sand to be playable. Carts in great shape, but could use more of them.

Can't wait to get back there and play again!

Solid Larry Packard Course!

I have played numerous Ross courses and there is not much Ross left here. The highway construction in the late 50s caused significant property loss and course rework to the point that 12 holes were altered! The Ross holes that remain have been redone and the greens flattened.

All that being said the course has a fun routing that can be a little tight in places. Holes 3 through 8 are solid fun holes.

Only negative is the greens need some help and appear to have some invasive grass issues! However for the rate charged and qualify of course, I felt it was well worth it!

Awesome Course

Wish I could play here all the time. Great Donald Ross design so better be careful around the greens. Good variety of holes and excellent routing. Course was in decent condition considering the circumstances this year. Just a shame they had to build an interstate along the northern boundary. Can’t wait to play it again. Wish we could have hung around for a beer afterwards.

Calumet October Round - Fantastic

Played course in 2.5 hours with no one literally anywhere on a super nice day - loved it. Formerly an exclusive private club - built in 1901 - now open to the public, which is really great.

Only complaint is that some of the tee boxes and greens have seen better days and they need to put some money into both - the history of the course deserves it and they just need to look at what's been done at Ravisloe, which has been totally restored. Please restore Calumet and I will play it all the time!!!!!

Noisy

Confusing layout out from green to next tee. No signage. If you haven’t played here you may spend some extra time finding next tee box. Course in rough shape. Greens recently pinched but lots of bald places on a few. Slow. Layout is typical Donald Ross, but the road noise along I294 holes is deafening. Literally. Way too noisy. Glad I saw it, but no reason to go back.

Good mature course

fairway grass not as dense as it should be for a course of this caliber

Plays Tough

The course itself was in fine shape, with the exception of the greens, which were not cut and rolled slower than normal. This course plays longer than it's stated yardage and to really play it well, you need to play it 4 or 5 times. The facilities surrounding the course appear to be deteriorating a little, and it's obvious that the facility is on the decline. My biggest gripe, though, is that the course is poorly marked, and we spent too much time trying to figure out the course routing. The complimentary range balls were a nice touch.

Loved It

I had the pleasure of playing Calumet Country Club on 09/16/20 with two other friends. I have always wanted to play this course every time I would drive by it on the expressway. Now I wonder what took me so long? I am a sucker for old school layouts and Calumet did not disappoint. I loved the well-defined boarders of the fairways, rough and “fall offs” around the greens. The greens were not extremely fast but rolled nicely. There was one green that could use some TLC, but that did not deter my enjoyment of the day. Some of the par threes and fours have some length to them and are no pushovers. The staff was very nice. All three of us enjoyed the course and will definitely be back.

Donald Ross scores a hit!

The layout is excellent, especially the front nine. Staff is extremely friendly. There are a few condition issues, especially some of the forward tees, the practice putting green, and the driving range. All victims of the hot weather and lack of rain. But the greens and fairways were very nice. Only food are hamburgs and hot dogs right off the grill and the hamburgs were excellent. Snacks and drinks in the pro shop. The clubhouse is closed except for the bathrooms. The course is for sale and that would explain some of the conditions. Worth the two for Tuesday deal.
May not be there next year so get your round in now.

Fun Layout but needs some TLC

My first time playing this course I was pleasantly surprised by the challenging layout. The fairways for the most part were in decent condition given the drought conditions area has been suffering for last 6 weeks. Appreciated getting some balls for the driving range for free since most clubs charge extra.

Issues:
Tee boxes were more crabgrass than grass
Driving range did not have much grass, but i think this is unique to the COVID situation where play is increasing
Expressway noise was sometimes overwhelming
Bunkers could use a little TLC. Many of the bunkers were raked but only the top 1/2” or so. Bunkers in the area seemed to get less attention as the season went on.
Facilities in general seemed a little dated for a country club.
Lack of carts. One of our carts and cart in front seemed to have transmission or charge issues.
No USB ports for phones.

For the $75 the group felt we could get more for the money elsewhere.
