Good value for money, but the starter want doing his job, foursomes stacked up by third hole. Ranger non-present.

Worst Place of Play Ever

The course had a frost warning so we were delayed about 20min. That was understandable, but they sent everyone off the back right away each other and you had to wait about 15min for every shot. They easily could have put golfers on the front before and people made the turn.. Course is in great shape and staff is friendly but a 7 hour round on this short and easy or a course is unacceptable.

What is going on lately?

This used to be one of my favorite courses but my goodness things have gone down hill. This is the second time now that the staff is just blatantly rude. It started with the guy behind the desk who was clearly having a rough morning, but for some reason decided to go out of his way to tell me in a frustrated tone to book the round earlier next time even though I booked it the preceding Monday before a Saturday... Umm, why are telling me this? We have a tee time. Not to mention this was after we waited in line for nearly 15 minutes while this guy and the woman were on the phone- during which neither of you acknowledged our existence. I finally get checked in and get outside and the guy in the Vietnam hat gets frustrated with us because we’re already up on the tee box. I tell him sorry, we’re hustling, but we waited in line for almost 15 minutes to which he replies “I doubt that” to which I say, no sir, we really did just wait in line for nearly 15 minutes. Then he yells at me not to argue with him...? Okay... So that’s a really fun way to start your round. Get to the turn and order some brats and beers. Brats had clearly just been tossed on the grill and were cold and gross, and the beer wasn’t cold. How hard is it to toss a bunch of brats on the rollers in the morning and have cold beer on hand? Every other course has clearly figured out how to do these basic things. The course was also in terrible shape though it has been dry lately so I’ll cut them a little slack. All this said, if you’re deciding between Chick Evan’s, Meadows of Blue Island, or White Pines- go to either of the latter two courses. They are the same price or cheaper, both have friendly staff, and the courses are in much better shape. My advice, find a new starter because that guy is just plain rude.

Disappointed

The course was packed. Big wait at every hole. Course was super dry, one hole it was hard to find grass to hit from. We left only playing 9 holes because it wasn’t worth it.

Good value

Chick Evans was in very good condition today being that it is a forest preserve golf course. The fairways were lush and the greens were in good shape. For beginning golfers and for golfers that are interested in playing shorter courses I recommend chick Evans

Worst golf experience

Slowest round ever, just under 6 hours. Started out ok, after 2nd hole, came to a 3 group back up which continued through the rest of the round. I understand it's early in the year, and people are shaking the rust off, but to have that many groups stacked up, was unacceptable

We do apologize, unfortunately with it being the first 80 degree day for the season. Everyone was out on the course trying to get their rounds in. We did have some beginners on the course, and we went out to push them along, but we apologize for the longer than normal play.
