Great Forest Preserve Course

The staff Friendliness is second to none. The course has a very good and well-maintained greens, the layout is good. It’s come a long way in past couple of years. If you haven’t played here in couple of years, I encourage you to try it.
Best is, you can play late late in the year as they won’t close until it’s snowing and in 20is.
Jerry and Tom are great starters. Everyone is good to deal with.

Great Course Good Price

October golf in Chicago has its challenges the course is well-maintained and laid out to focus your iron accuracy.

Pace of play is usually good but of course as with any public course can I have it challenges

Biased Home Course Review

I started on this course. Love it. It’s not Pebble ok. The course gets flooded easily and can be a hot mess. Otherwise the layout is challenging. Water, narrow fairways, few holes are just straight up and down. Course is short but challenging. Look you have to hit it straight to play well here. Don’t let the par 71 fool you. This is a great course for amateurs and anyone above a 15 handicap trying to work it out and improve. Had a cart person the other day. Rare sighting but very welcome. Good food at turn for regular dogs and brats. Staff is friendly and if I saw correctly they just upgraded their carts. Thank god! Lol I’ll be back soon.

Not bad for a quick round

Don’t plan on good course conditions here. For a cheap round where you’re not really concerned with keeping score I would say go for it.

Shorter Cost Friendly Course

Course is conveniently located off Highway 94. Very reasonably priced.

At 5634 yards (Blue) par 71 it is a shorter course with several reachable par fours. There is no clubhouse but the pro shop sells food and beverages including beer..

Fairways and greens are typical of a Chicago public course.

KEEP IT IN PLAY

TIGHT COURSE, WITH SMALL GREENS, AND SHORT LAYOUT.

#3 HOLE IS IN BAD SHAPE, AND #10 HOLE GRASS SHOULD BE CUT BEFORE GREEN. MANY HOLES ARE HARD TO PAR, WHICH I KIND OF LIKE.. GREENS WERE IN GOOD SHAPE. CHIPPING WAS DIFFICULT BECAUSE OF HIGH GRASS.

Course was in decent shape for late August and being a forest preserve course. Grouped with a nightmare couple pairing who complained about everything and skipped an entire hole. After they detached from us because of their frustration, our back 9 was some of the most enjoyable golf of the season. Awesome round on a HOT day
