St. Andrews Golf & Country Club was originally built in 1926 as a rival to the Chicago County Club. Since then, the club has built its own reputation and stands out for its two championship golf courses and top-ranked practice center. The St. Andrews Course is the club's original layout before the Joe Jemsek Course was added in 1929. It is also the longer of the two golf courses. The club and course draw their name from the famous Scottish club known as the "home of golf," but the course is far from being a seaside links. Instead, the mostly flat layout weaves through mature trees. The golf course offers a challenge with tight, tree-lined doglegs and large, contoured greens framed with sand bunkers. It has a memorable finish with a par 4 that features a water hazard along the entire right side of the fairway.

Great Course !!

Incredible course for the local area. Not your typical back and forth on flat ground. This course has fairways that slope, change altitude and the greens have many areas to contend with.
Bring your “A” game, or suffer some 3-putts or even a few 4-putts. Fun time !!

Perfect Monday

Everything was great and since it was an early tee time, I was able to get going on my own and play as a single which I always appreciate. Course was not overly busy. Only wish I knew range was closed but that was a minor thing. Halfway house was open which was appreciated

Over-priced for Moderate Course

Even with most courses taking advantage of the Covid situation by price gauging, this course takes it too far. $39 to walk or $57 to ride at this average course is excessive. I won't play here again until they bring prices back in line.
