The course has not had spike shoe cleaners since Covid. When asked why the employees rolled their eyes, letting us know they have been asked this many times. Their response was that there wasn’t enough staff.

I think the park District can do better than thst

Nice 9-hole course

A friend of mine and I played Sugar Creek on Labor Day. It was a hot one - 85-90 degrees during our round. The pace was relaxed and we weren't in any hurry. Waited a few minutes to tee off at a few holes and nobody was pushing us from behind. Course was in great condition and the greens were tough. Fun round!

Course is in transition but a fun 9 holes

I intended to play this 9-hole course by myself but was paired up with a man and his 16-year-old son. They were the perfect pairing for me as they too have recently gotten back into golfing and were fairly lax on both skill and etiquette (though they were both better than me). They play this course often so it was helpful to have their insight.

There are large sections of the first few holes that are roped off as "DO NOT ENTER" due to some environmental sensitivities and I did lose a couple balls there. The signs are nice enough to say that you can take a drop and are not penalized a stroke since they have blocked it off and are forbidden to retrieve your ball if you hit it in one of those sections. The man I was playing with said that, though he didn't exactly know what the course owners were doing, he suspected that they were increasing the size of the water hazards due to recent flooding.

The tees are pretty hacked up, the fairways are nice, and the greens are in very good shape. One bummer about this course is that there is no Par 5, only 4's and 3's. Their driving range is good and the practice putting green is very well kept. I was hoping to see a practice bunker or two near the practice putting green but no dice. Each person I met who worked there was very kind and helpful.

Overall this was a fun outing and I do intend on playing this course again. Seasoned golfers might not find this course too challenging but it was a great course for myself who is still very much in the novice stages of figuring out my game.
