Great public course.

The only suggestion i have is start everyone on Hole 10 .. This would play faster. CURRENTLY Hole # 1 is par 5. Tee shots always have to wait for approach to green shots . Which have to wait golfers putting out and 3 groups on first tee are already waiting. Then Hole # 2 is a par 3 which is an automatic wait, as we know it . And there you have it, 2 groups waiting for 3rd group to start play on a par 3.. If they switched play to # 10 as first hole and offered the 9 hole option for additional money $$$( to which courses need the revenue these days ) Many people would play 9 holes and some would be done in under 2 hours and be Off the course after 9 holes and this would open up the current tightened layout of hole 1 thru 9 !! You asked and I gave you my advice. I believe all courses should band together and empower Marshalls to encourage faster play . You dont have to line up and putt a 15 inch putt for God's Sake, everytime. If you make the first one pick up the rest . cmon guys , not gettin any younger and there is no trophy at the end of your round. I get it courses are afraid of negative reviews . But how about if they got a positive review !!! What about that ?? I played so and so and was done in 3 and a half hours.. People would line up to play that course . Too many whiners and ya'll ain't that good.

Slowest course ever

Slowest golf round ever played you start with a par 5 then a par 3 then a par 5 I think that's one of the reasons it's so slow some of the craziest doglegs I've ever seen I Won't Go Back

Pedestrian course that has many issues

It had been 6 or 7 years since I played OB. Standing on the 3rd tee my playing partner and I remembered why. A ball whizzed right in between us at head level. No fore or even an attempt at any apology from the the idiot that almost killed one of us. Front nine you might as well wear a hard hat....it's packed in so tight there's no room for error....and has water on almost every hole because you're playing on Salt Creek's flood plain. The course attracts a diverse variety of players but results in extremely slow (and extremely stuck up & entitled) play. 4 some directly in front of us.....each one used a different tee box - blue/white/green/red. During the round one them hit at least 3 balls out on to York Road into traffic. Another guy in the group waited and waited to attempt driving the green on all of the short par 4's. He didn't prox any of them. His playing partner - she had no clue on where to drive or park their golf cart...most times right in front of the green.....and then both dilly dallied clearing the green - she then marked the scorecard before eventually driving off to next tee box.

The course itself is in decent shape - greens are fast but the complexes are very similar - almost turtle back with ridges that if you get on the wrong side of you can't keep the ball close if you're above the hole. Several holes were cut right at the apex of ridges. A number of doglegs on this course in both directions. Variety but a short sameness abounds on this course.

They do have a rather ratty driving range in the flood plain and a nice clubhouse/patio. Post round food was extremely marginal at best - despite a thumbs up recommendation from the bartender the reuben sandwich came out burnt/dry very overcooked plus fries were very crunchy & overdone (you really have to work to make bad french fries...it's not easy to do!!). And now suffering morning after from that "meal."

Won't bother returning back to OB for another 6 or 7 years even though the course is 10 minutes away. There are a lot of fine public tracks in Chicagoland that are more cost effective and have better bones .-. OB is course I don't want (or need) to return anytime soon..

Your review sums up OB absolutely PERFECTLY! I live less than 10 minutes from the place, but avoid it at all costs. It's only good for an early April walk to get back to swinging after 5 months off.

I can’t believe I haven’t played here in 20 years

We had a 7:59 AM tee time on a Monday. The starter let us tee off about 30 minutes early. The pace was great, we played in less than four hours with two of us walking. The greens are very challenging and have good speed. The par 5’s played long. There are a number or short par 4’s but water and sand keep you on your toes. The only complaint is the par threes were all seven iron for me from the white tees. Overall a fine experience and we will definitely be back
