Sun baked fairways produced long drives. Course was in great shape considering the HOT DRY weather.

Nice park district course

Very nice course. We played on a Wednesday afternoon and it wasn’t very crowded. The course was in very good condition. I will definitely play there again.

Play where the Strapped boys played

I chose to play the course because I was Strapped. Course was packed, even on a cold, windy day in late Nov. There were biker gangs of old people everywhere. Okay, that was a just a joke. But it was crowded, and slow. Greens were also slow. Bumpy too. But that's probably due to the season. Front 9 is a snooze. Back 9 is pretty tricky though, with multiple hidden hazards. Some better topography on the back. At least I played better than Icarito.

Home course

Love this course, great layouts sand traps and trees in play on most holes. Back nine is more picturesque and harder. Well maintained and usually in great shape.

another fine round

Course was in decent shape. Greens were true despite a couple of damaged spots. I give it a B based on the fact COVID-19 has dealt the park district a blow financially.
