Great day on the links!

The greens are very challenging with all the contours and slopes. You will hit every club in the bag. Great courses have memorable holes and this courses has 18 of them. 5 hour round expected playing at 12:30 and challenging greens. Rough height was perfect as you could find your ball but still have a tougher shot being in the rough. Saw the beverage cart 5 times which was unexpected being such a full course of players. Next time I will try to play early to get smoother greens, not a knock on conditions just a little bumpy which was expected playing at 12:30 behind 160 players. I will be back!!!

Course management is key

The course layout requires tactical planning for a decent score. Distance is less critical. Fun course to play, but pace of play was a little frustrating.

Mt. Prospect is a really nice layout! Trees plentiful with a lot of variation. Greens are especially difficult. Only issue was too many golfers do not replace their ball marks on the green! Made the greens that much more difficult. Overall a great course and will continue to hit it.

Windy weather
Walked

Unfair large sloped excessively undulating greens. .

Pin placements on large sloped excessively undulating greens unfairly punished good shots by funneling balls off green into high thick rough and made mid-length putts virtually unmakeable. Lack of distance markers in fairways and on Par 3's bad for walkers. Good conditioning, nice flat tee boxes, firm turf. Best sand in metro area. Outstanding tee-to-green design and hole variety. Played in 4 hours on a busy afternoon.

Fun Greenpads Nice Conditions

4.5 stars. Wonderful to be back at Mt. Prospect. Read my previous reviews below. Course will drive beginners and below average players crazy. Advanced players will love this place. Tons of interesting golf architecture. Very good practice facilities and a well done clubhouse. Highly recommend a round or three each season at this gem. Can be expensive but look for deals.

Fun Course!

This is a shorter course that makes up for that distance difficulty with a few very different hole designs and extremely challenging greens. Each hole can play very differently depending on the day based on where the hole locations are. Lots of multi-tiered greens!
