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.

Must try at least once

Bent grass fairways. Nice Layout. Plenty of trees. Some water but not enough to scare you. I am old and injured so I didn't like to walk up a hill to all reds tee box.

$21 is too much for carts

Both St. Andrews courses are very nice and in good condition.
My complaint is that they charge too much for carts. $21 for one person to rent a cart. Most courses charge $10 or $15 for a cart.

Great course for the money.

I played a fair bit on this course lately. Overall, I am very satisfied with this course, especially considering its very reasonable price ($24/$29 for early morning tee times during the weekdays).

The course conditions have improved since I last played six years ago. Fairways and greens are clean and well mowed. They could not be as good as the more expensive courses such as Cantigny, Prairie Landings, and Arrowhead, but comparing to the course of this price range, I would say the course conditions are exceptional.

Course layout is good but a little much to the straight side. #4, #5, and #18s are a bit challenging. Other holes are more or less straight.

Overall, it is a fun course to play, and great value for the money.

I haven’t played here for three years, it was a welcome return. It’s certainly a longer course from the white tee box compared to others.

Bad

The tee boxes at this course are right where most drives and approach shots land if you don’t hit the tight fair ways. My groups cart got hit 4 times while playing. Many people jumping into your fair way while trying to tee off. Which is not an issue cause I’m not good at golf so I understand but the course lay out makes it not safe at all when very busy. Recommend wearing a helmet.
