The North Course

I had the pleasure of being invited to play the North course on 8/16/22. It’s been at least 20 years since I have played the North course. I have to say it is just as beautiful as I remember. The course is immaculate from the fairways to the perfect greens. If you play the correct tees, you will enjoy yourself. But make no mistake this course is no pushover. Olympia Fields wouldn’t be hosting major golf tournaments if it was. Being sort of a novice golf history buff, you can’t help being caught up thinking of all the great players that have walked these grounds. All the staff from inside to out are extremely friendly and professional, and made me feel very welcomed. I even met a few members of the club, and they also made me feel just as welcomed. Olympia Fields is first class. I can wait to get invited back.

Olympia Fields that place is HUGE

It was an honor to be able to accept an invitational to play the North course at Olympia Fields. The property is huge and everything about it is done right. The drive range is great. The locker room is insane and they make sure you put a nice card on your locker with your name on it. I couldn't have been more pleased with that part of the experience.

Golf course was in great shape also. I can totally see how they host big events like US open or BMW. The property is is huge and they can make that rough as thick as they need too. Luckily it wasn't crazy for us.
Accuracy is a most. If your not straight you are hitting punch shots all the time. Which I did!!

I really loved the stretch of holes from 12-16. With hole 14 being my favorite. Although it is BRUTALLY tough it is very picturesque and well designed but so so hard.'

My only gripe about the course is I felt it didn't receive balls very well. Lots of pitch shots or knock down shots from the fairway would skid all the way to the back. Not what you expect from a top notch course. The greens were rollin really good well though.

All in all great experience. If you get the chance dont pass it up.

Course was great, it’s a private club and the people / member are some of the most ignorant people I have ever met.
