Course was in good condition and is fun course to play. Score on the front nine as back nine is more challenging. We played in reasonable time as twosome. We ate at the course restaurant after golf, very good and reasonable prices. Greens fees are high for this course vs other courses in the the western suburbs. We play mostly during the week with senior rates vs weekends and holidays. Golfers need to replace divots and repair ball marks on the greens.

My daughter and I have played this course about 4 years. Every experience has been excellent, friendly staff, help if we needed it, good pace and some challenging holes for for some not so great golfers. We often get to go as a twosome which is greatly appreciated. The course is beautiful, well maintained, full of wildlife, and quiet. We would recommend it to anyone at every level. They always do a great job on the weather.

Fair and a little disappointed

The #2 hole had a flag midpoint of fairway leading us to believe that the hole had been moved due to wet course. Directions to next holes should have been located to help newcomers to the course get to next hole without confusion. Grass along fairways is fairly high. Watch where your ball lands.

$$?

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Bliss Creek and the staff that work there. I do question how their greens fees all of a sudden went up to $50 for 18 holes on the weekends. I like the course, I like the layout, the restaurant is nice as a 19th hole, but honestly, they don't keep up the course that well, you are constantly losing balls if you don't hit it directly in the fairway as they hardly ever blow the leaves. I distinctly remember when 18 holes with a cart was like $30-40. What changed?

One word: ick

Now I fully understand that there is not much you can do when it has rained as much as it has. Courses can only drain so much. My issue has nothing do with the courses wet playing condition as that is just part of golf. However, this course in a nutshell is a “nightmare”. Let’s start with the basics. The fairways and rough are the exact same style of grass, one is just cut shorter than the other. There is no first cut rough either so it goes from a medium style of grass fairway to ankle height weeds very quickly. There are multiple areas on the course where they are trying to grow fairway grass and their methods seem to be laying down huge chunks of sod. I have never seen this on a course before but it is not a good look. There are no yardage markers on most holes. It’s like they just don’t put them out there. The sprinkler heads have either the wrong yardage or no yardage on them. One of the sprinkler heads next to the green had the yardage marker cap of 122yds on it. It’s obvious there is no organization. Players range from experienced to newbies and most people have no golf etiquette to be found. One of those courses where drinking and smoking a cigar is more fun then golf.

It’s a bottom tier course in poor condition and the price to play is outrageous in comparison to the quality. I would not suggest playing unless you get a hot deal and can make it cheap cheap.

Always wet!

This course has no drainage it’s always wet.
I realize we received a lot of rain but we had gilded the day before at orchard valley and it was substantially drier and the course in much better condition.

The Governor Made Me Walk

This is my first round since the governor let us all golf again. I carried my cart bag as i didn't have a pull cart. Our twosome teed offed at 7:10 a.m., and the course seemed fairly deserted. Pace of play was fantastic. The two of us moved at our own pace and finished in 3 hours. The course is short (5,400 yards) and is not very challenging. Just perfect given that we could not use the driving range and essentially teed off cold. I would not have enjoyed it as much if we were playing under regular conditions. The course was wet but there's been a lot of rain. It would make a nice course for a causal or social round with friends. the only beef i have is that 17th and 18th holes are not well marked. I hit in the wrong direction on 17, and my playing partner did the same on 18. We then took a few minutes and did figure it out. Also the yardage on the score card, on the hole signs, and on the tee box are inconsistent. .

Fun course

Fun course to play, not particularly long but has several challenging holes. Several greens have huge movement and important to be on the correct side otherwise 2 putt is difficult. Course looks like it had many rounds played this shortened season ( as many courses have) and some tee boxes show wear. But for this late in the season not too bad. Greens rolled well and were in good shape. I really like this course and try and play it 3-4 times a year even though it’s a bit of a ride for me.
