Good course just a little over priced for a 9 hole course.

Overall it is a great 9 hole course. It has some challenging holes. The only issue is the greens fees - just seems a little over priced compared to other courses of similar quality - I can find several courses of comparable quality where I can play 18 w cart for about the same $$ I paid at Rob Roy for 9?

Nice Nine Hole Course

Played Rob Roy many times over the last 10 years. It's a tight course where you'll have to hit it straight. The course itself is usually in very good shape and the staff are friendly.

Sand traps need repair

Most traps are unplayable, no sand and some times filled with water.

Course was in good condition except for the sand bunkers. Not enough sand makes for a difficult out.

Course Conditions

I have played this course every year for several years. I have witnessed a steady decline in the condition of the course. Sand traps have been ignored. Weeds have become rampant. Bushes have grown to heights of 14 feet! Trees long dead remain.

It is obvious that ownership has made a conscious decision not to re-invest in the maintenance of the course. From.a business perspective, there is a huge difference between minimizing expenses - a good thing - and investing so as to attract new and steady business.

This could be one of the very best 9 hole course in the area, but without attending to it, it will continue to decline!

Rob Roy course

Greens were very good, looks like golfers fits their divot , but the bunkers were terrible maybe because of cord-vid 19.also a lot of broken carts.

Tough and narrow

One of the best 9 hole courses you can play in the Chicagoland area. Pace of play is a little slow because of the difficulty but well worth the trip out there. I enjoy this course because of the difficulty. It makes you a better golfer. Course is not long but just perfect. Staff is wonderful and they make every effort to make sure that your round goes smooth. You have to play the #5 par 5 it is a real golf hole. If you take a 6 on it your doing pretty darn good.
