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.

Tournament Brought Pace of Play way down

Played 5/8/2021 and there was a Hurricane junior golf tournament. I think it is great to promote junior golf. My issue was with the kids and parents watching who were moving at a snails pace. This caused delays in the round and a log jam.

Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing and we hope to see you again soon.

Reasonable walking

Played here half a dozen times in 2020. If you walk this is a good course to take advantage of. The course is well maintained and the staff are accommodating to your desires. If it is a windy day there are plenty of trees along the fairways to reduce the wind.

Weather was perfect, not crowded (but early in the season) and the course was in excellent shape. Some spots here and there but overall no problem for play. No crabgrass in the rough and fairways well defined.

St Andrews course @St Andrews Golf Club

Although a brisk 30mph wind, this course was in fine shape. Greens pitted true, sand in great shape. Yes, for March fairways are developing, but hey after the Covid in our lives(12 months & counting). Overall a great value!
