Nice 9 hole-er

Good pace of play and well maintained. Relatively tight fairways but stay in them and you’ll be fine. I would recommend this to anyone that just wants a nice 9 hole course with good pace and value.

Nice course with great value

Good suburban chicago 9 hole course. Not difficult by any means, but if looking to do a 9 hole hard to find better value. Nice restaurant with friendly staff on premises. Course is in good condition considering it likely gets played on a lot. Very efficient and super affordable.

Good variety

Fun course. Relatively narrow fairways. Has its share of older golfers on weekdays so can be slow.
