Diabolical Greens

This was my 2nd time playing here. I remembered tricky greens but they were very tricky placements today. Many Greens are multi tiered so if you are on wrong part, good luck 2 putting. Pace of play was 3 hours 45 minutes so I was happy with that. They have great practice facilities and overall....a great experience. I recommend.

Great Muni Course - Crazy Greens!

Overall the course was in great shape and offers a great practice facility. The greens are very undulated so be prepared to have lots of 3 putts (or more) if you’re not careful. A couple of Par 3s play very long from the tips. Good balance of fun, value, and challenge.

Great experience at Mt. Prospect

Played today for the first time and been wanting to play here for awhile now. Glad i did and will be back if they keep pricing reasonable. Just a tip and one tip only don't want to spoil all the fun! Make sure you bring your putting game. If you never played Mt. P before , practice the night before at a mini golf. Green run and run and keep running. You must hit the green just right or your balls will roll away. 5 stars for being a well ran city course!

Nice course but…

I’ve played this course a handful of times this year. It’s a nice course but there are couple of issues I’ve noticed this year. The pace play is about 30-45 minutes slower on the weekends compared to last year. My second complaint is regarding the greens. It’s not that they’re too hard. I actually enjoy the challenge they bring. My issue is when they change the location of the pin, they never level out the new hole. It always seems to be on a crown. If you leave a putt short, it rolls backward a few inches. I’m not sure if they’re in a rush this year but I don’t recall this being an issue in past years.

Overall I think this is a really nice course and a great value. I would recommend it.

Solid Burbs Course

Not overly difficult but fairly unique course layout, big, rolling greens, and difficult bunker placements make this a fun course to try out. The greens were a bit beat up but otherwise the course was in good condition.

Fun course to play . Short course but lots of challenging obstacles which make it difficult and greens very challenging. Unfortunately the greens were very beat up and ball marks pretty bad on a lot of holes but I know due too heavy play and I’m sure people not replacing there ball marks like they should . But tee boxes and fairways in excellent shape .

Nice course. The starter was pleasant but overall not much contact with the staff. Course was really good. Wasn’t busy. (Monday) a bit pricy for off peak time. I would play it again.
