Great time!

We golfed on a less than average weather day, it was not busy, but the course was in good shape and we had a great time with great buds. For so early in the season, I’m impressed and will be back soon! Also, Doug was very friendly and accommodating!

Windy weather
Walked

OK Course but not my first choice.

Course condition were fair. It was extremely windy so the course played tougher than expected. I played from the white tees and the distance was fine. Probably could have play black but the wind was really up. Many holes are right to left layout so you need to hit a draw or lay back to the corner. greens have a lot of slope and since it is fall/dry were fairly fast. front nine is pretty bland, holes 16 and 17 are probably the best.

Grossly overpriced

Played for the first time today, 11/7/2020.
Very tight. I know it's November, but it didn't appear in many areas they were too concerned with removing leaves from the course.
Not much of a range. Enough to hit a few irons.
Staff was friendly. Covid has the clubhouse closed, however they did their best with an outside tent.
The condition of the greens were poor. Very slow and not very well kept. $20 for a cart is ridiculous, and $65 for greens fees in November is equally outrageous.
Won't be back..

Fallen on hard times

Very disappointed. I’ve been playing this course for over 30 years. Since the park district has taken over this once treasure it has continued to decline. There is less and less attention payed to the details that it takes to run a quality course. Greens don’t get cut often enough. There are no attendants to clean up leaves. I work at another north suburban park district course, have to say they are running this track into the ground. Others are updating their courses, Schaumburg, Northbrook, Highland Park, Glenview, Wilmette, Mount Prospect. Seems like there’s a pan to run it into the ground and sell to developers. Very sad.....

Great course

Great all around course. But I would not pay$85 to play. Worth $50. I play there a few times every summer. Some of the holes have houses very close. Keep it straight:)

Great course in the area

Great course, and awesome conditions for this late in the season. Only complaint is there was an additional $20 riding fee/player we were not expecting. Yes $20/player, not per cart.

Slow, slow, slow

At the 14th hole and 4 1/2 hours into the round, we decided to call it a day. Rangers did nothing to speed up the play.

Fix the tee boxes

1st timer. This course gave Chick Evans a run for the money, and it was more expensive. No even tee boxes. Course felt condensed. Not all narrow, but close together. Some difficult holes. A lot of geese. Greens slow. Course play was fine.

Groundskeeper Willy

I think the head groundskeeper spends more time writing fake reviews than working on the course.

Bring extra long tees. The tee boxes look like the rough but the rough looks like asphalt.

The course does have a scenic view of the TJ Max parking lot!

Not the best pace of play

A high school team was injected at the 10th between regular golfing groups. Groups who finished the front 9 before the team had to wait for more than 30 mins to tee off on the 10th. I was playing single and my round took 6 hours! Good putting green but terrible driving range.
