Every once in a while...
I like to come out here every once in a while just for the challenge and keeping my distances in check.. this is by no means an easy course but the conditions definitely don't make it any easier. The elevation change is what keeps me coming back despite my gripes with the dead grass and constant clovers/weeds.. pretty much the only reason to play here and the only reason I ever recommend it to anyone. Whenever I book a round here I always brace myself for at least 5+ hours because it gets so brutally slow and it's impossible for them to control.
I keep hearing this place used to be super nice back in the day. The course definitely needs attention but would totally need to shut down operations for over a year to make it worth the money again. I couldn't imagine playing here regularly and I am so thankful my home course is not like this one. But despite my gripes it will not keep me from coming back here every once in a while...
Very Challenging course. They need a mid day rat, on the weekends. It is $70 until 3pm, then goes down to $45. Takes about 4.5-5 hours to get through. hard to do if you start at 3pm. Fairways need some work. I will go back
Greens are in great shape. That's about all that was taken care of. Most fairways were weeds, all the rough was weeds. They sell the tee times too close together. I understand it's a business but how much will you make if I don't go back ? This was a nice course back in the day but now it's not being cared for as it should.
Park District Worthy Course Conditions (if that).
This is legitimately the only time I’ve reviewed anything. I am disappointed that it is a negative review about a golf course, but I hope this review helps out anyone that has hope for this course and is considering it for a weekend round.
The title of this review speaks for itself; fairways are practically non-existent and are full of concrete-like dirt and dead grass. Even if you have a nice shot off the tee, forget trying to hit a clean fairway shot as you’ll have to pick it clean as if you were hitting out of a fairway bunker. Greens were spongy, tee boxes were beat up, and the small encounter that we had with the course staff was unenthusiastic. $70 for this course is about $40 too much. Save your money and play a course like Arrowhead or Klein Creek.
Say goodbye to an old friend!
Played here for the first time in 5 years. I was unaware of the conditions, apparently due to an imminent sale of the property.
What a shame to see such a beautifully maintained course left to weed/clover. Greens are soft and long, tinted green for some reason and so slow it's almost a joke.
Minimal attention is being given, there are dead trees all over and it feels like a depressing movie.
Sorry to see it go but in my opinion - already GONE!
So long Old Friend!
This course used to be fantastic
One can see this course has been up for sale for a few years. Surprisingly the bunkers were in fantastic shape. The fairways, however, haven't had a weed control treatment for years.
For $70 per round you don’t expect the fairway bunkers to be full of weeds. The condition of the fairways was mediocre at best. The greens were very slow.
It’s a shame because the course layout is super picturesque with rolling hills and elevation changes. A lot of the holes are really good looking from the tee box and the right amount of water is in play.
The real kicker though was they shut the food window before 4:30. We teed off at 2pm on a busy Sunday afternoon and the grill window was shut when we made the turn. We had to go into the bar to get the food which took 15 minutes and another 5-8 minutes to settle up.. We were 4 grown men in or approaching our 40’s so a hot dog literally takes 30 seconds to eat once it is in our hands. Eventually we made the turn only to met with a ranger complaining about the pace of play and complaining that we did not eat on the move.. Well, we were not the ones who closed the food window.
Also the bar area and restrooms were straight out of the 60’s with no recent updates.
For $70 would not recommend. Much better options available for this price.
Layout is straight forward overall but the trees and hilly terrain make it fairly challenging. The amenities of the course are in need of upgrading such as cartpaths, ballwashers, and on-course porto-pottys. Many of the sandtraps are in very poor condition. No driving range for warmups.
