This is a Fantastic Course!

I really enjoyed my entire experience here. The fairways, greens, and tee boxes were all in good shape. You can tell they work hard to keep this place in great shape. I really enjoyed the detail that has gone into each of their holes and how many of them are designed in the likeness of St. Andrew's course in Scotland. The golf carts are all equipped with a gps system which was helpful for us to choose our clubs and plan our shots. Occasionally, the gps system would have notifications that would pop up which got annoying after a while. All in all, we had a great time, I would highly recommend this golf course, and will be back to play soon.

Great place for the $$$

Shorter par 4s but almost every green is elevated making hitting the green crucial. Greens are Incredibly challenging with crazy hills and valleys but the speed is consistent on each, making it more fun than frustrating. You really need to be accurate with your 7-sw when hitting into the green.ma. The whole course is well manicured. My new favorite.

It’s been many years since returning to play Mt. Prospect GC and wow!
They have made significant changes, all for the better too.
The practice areas are by far the best in the area.

New layout is nice

First time playing after the renovation, it’s a bit pricey for the course but probably one of the better courses in our area. Tough greens! Course was in nice shape.

Felt Like a Private Course

My first time playing this course, and I will definitely be back. I'm about a 14 handicapper and challenged myself from the tips today, and this course delivered a good challenge. Although some tee shots require good accuracy, it is still forgiving. Course conditions were great, although the greens were recently aerated. Course is tucked into a neighborhood away from busy roads, so had all the feelings of a private course. Highly recommend! Will be back.

The course is well maintained even after it rained the last few days. We didn't have to wait for anyone in front of us. The greens are hilly and challenging which makes it a fun course.
