Nice course

Course overall is a thinkers course, GPS really helped
Some holes do cross so beware of flying balls
Course winds through a neighborhood and greens are challenging
So bring your game.

Had to leave it was so slow. Seriously.

5somes. 5 min between tee times. Stacked tee boxes. Range was soaking wet turf when the rough was dry. Luckily they let me get a rain check. I’ll try again when it’s early and hopefully not so painfully slow. Like 5 + hours slow.

One of the better values in Chicago

First time playing Mt Prospect, and I wish I would have visited years ago. A tight layout with elevated and heavily undulated greens. In great condition, especially for a muni. The course had electric GPS carts, and pace of play was great. Will be back soon!

Great old course

Tremendous strategic holes that make you think about every tee shot without being too penal. The variety in hole length lets you hit different clubs and while providing a lot of variety. Putting surfaces are challenging - a respite from boring flat greens.

Neighborhood Gem

Was very surprised by this neighborhood course.
Had a great experience. Greens are very tough and offer a challenge.
Holes offer a lot of diversity which keep you sharp on all areas of your game.

Would definitely recommend.

Interesting holes, par 70

I like this course because it is sufficiently long for a par 70 and has a few interesting tee shots & approaches. Many greens are well guarded by bunkers and mounds so you can't just run it up. The curvature of the greens is often a bit too extreme for my tasted but the course is in good shape overall. I would recommend aerating the tee boxes as they are packed so hard you can't drive a nail in them let alone your tee.

One of the better courses in the North Shore

Worth at least one visit. The course and practice greens were in perfect condition. Just enough water and sand bunkers to test all your skills. Elevation changes on the fairway can be challenging at times. My friend and I enjoyed the course so much we decided to play it again the following week.

Extremely Rude Starter

The starter at this course ruined my game and I will never golf at this course again. When we got to the course at 5:50am this morning, we went to the pro shop only to find that the tee time I called in had not been made. The pro shop still was able to get us out at 6:10, but when we got to the starter, he referred to us at “the. Group without a tee time”. We went out and shot a normal round on the front 9, but when we made the turn, the crazy eyed starter was waving his hands and screaming at us like an angry child. He said the whole course is backed up because of how slow we were playing. We teed off at 6:10am and made the turn at 8:05. That’s hardly slow... When we told him the cart said we were on time, he just said “technically that’s right but you need to pick it up”. That doesn’t even make sense! Very bad experience....
