Rating 73.0

Cantigny Golf in Wheaton offers 27 holes of championship golf. It is also a great place for juniors with an academy and nine-hole youth links course. The holes are divided into the Lakeside, Hillside, and Woodside nines, names that connote the characteristics of the beautiful landscape. There are two meandering creeks as well as 12 lakes interspersed throughout the golf courses. The nines are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Lakeside/Hillside Course, as the name would imply, takes advantage of the many lakes and elevation changes. Mature hardwood trees frame the holes and more than 100,000 flowers provide a colorful accent. In addition to water hazards, there are also strategically placed bunkers along the greensides. All of the golf courses are enjoyable challenging without being overly difficult.

Play Cantigny, It's Worth It

Two weeks in a row for me playing Cantigny. After last week I didn't think it could get much better but was I ever wrong. Coming off of the Club Championship, the course was in immaculate condition, and the greens were lightning fast. Cantigny is such a joy to play. We played Woodside to Lakeside again, but the course is amazing regardless of which nines you play. The property is full of wildlife and beautiful scenery it's a joy to be there even if you're not playing golf. I highly recommend that you play Cantigny, and not just once per year!

Great layout and the course was in very good shape. The Lakeside greens must have very recently been punched as it was very bumpy. It was an enjoyable experience

Waste of money. Course is in terrible condition.

This was a round that I was looking forward to. Beautiful October afternoon. Thought the 115.00 price was high for an afternoon in October but that is demand pricing in the golf industry these days. This course however is in absolutely terrible if not unplayable shops The aeration is dramatic. Especially on Woodside. We never really
putted out because there is actually more sand than grass in the manner that they aerated this nine. Stay away from this course. They will continue to COVID price you until you holld them accountable. There is no course in this area that is in this poor condition.

Please don’t follow up with a canned response about being sorry that you didn’t enjoy the experience. You know how bad it is.

Cloudy cool day.

Very nice course. Pretty wet and didn't get much roll on the ball especially near the greens. The foursome in front very slow it took 4 hours and forty five minutes. Still beautiful course and would play again.

Price for Senior Players

The senior price of $125.00 is outrageous. That is not a senior rate on any planet. It is a beautiful complex but the price is too high for the senior player. $89 was a fair price not a penny more.
