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.

Course was in real bad condition ! They had not even removed the old cups from some of the greens!

I used to play this course at least 8 to 10 times during the season few years back. Me and my brother used to love this course. It has really gone downhill in the past few years!

Ps. It could be because of the end of the season! I will play this course at least once next season just to prove myself wrong hopefully!!

Nice course

Course is in really good condition as always. We played the St. Andrews course. It is a bit tight fairways switch back and forth on each other but not to bad. Both courses are nice. I would recommend them both.

Gorgeous in the fall with lots of colorful tree-lined fairways. Tough but fair course.

GREAT PLACE

The golf course and practice facility is the best around. Customer service and the entire staff is excellent. Bill who runs the golf course is a great guy and Dave their head professional does an outstanding job. I’ve been playing golf there for 30 plus years. To all of you golfers who like greens that are fast and roll nice, the spring and fall their greens are like country club greens!! Anyone who wants to play golf all year around they are open 364 days a year. Thanks for the outstanding job and great customer service you provide!!

Course Great

St Andrews has 2 courses and the Jemsek course is better vs St Andrews Course. That being said, both are enjoyable and a great value. You do need to be on high alert for errant shots. Course Marshalls are helpful to keep a good pace of play.
