Definitely worth the drive

A very nice course. Lots of elevation, challenging holes, mature vegetation and trees. Definitely worth the drive and would definitely play again.

Fall golf

Beautiful day and a corse that was in really good shape given the early fall conditions. The only downer was the grumpy guy in the clubhouse. He was maskless and surly, not exactly the perfect combo to welcome you to a round of golf. The course is challenging without being unfair. The greens were in good shape given the amount of play they had taken over the season. Will be back.

Course in good condition

Course was challenging, especially for the first time. Lots of blind tee shots which made it more difficult. Greens were in good condition but a bit slow. Tee boxes are in great shape and very large. Most of the staff was wonderful except for the rude gentlemen that checked us in. Would recommend the course. Might be a little bit pricey for the quality, but definitely a must try at least once. They did have a cart girl which was a plus.

No place like it

If you didn’t know you were in Algonquin you would think you were in Scotland.
700 yard par five is a little crazy but still fun to play

Good Course with friendly staff

The staff overall is very friendly and positive. The course layout is challenging and yet can be rewarding. Unfortunately, after the recent spell of hot, dry weather, the course was very soft and wet in spots--some time almost plugging in the fairway.

What a fun track!

Best round of golf all year based on value, course conditions, and overall layout of the course! Lots of fun holes with a variety of elevation off the tee and approach shot into the greens. The greens were so well kept and rolling true, it felt like we were at a course 4x more expensive and exclusive. What a fun track!
