Cantigny Golf - Hillside/Woodside
Cantigny Golf boasts 27 holes of scenic and challenging golf. The holes are divided into three nines that are named after the features of the landscape: Lakeside, Hillside, and Woodside. The nines are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Hillside/Woodside course features plenty of elevation changes as well as an abundance of hardwoods, mature oaks, and ash trees. More than 100,000 flowers provide a colorful accent to the golf course. Strategically placed bunkers border the undulating greens and there are also a few water hazards coming into play. All three courses provide a challenging round but they are playable for a range of skill levels. It is an excellent place for tournaments. In the past it has been host to the US Amateur Public Links and numerous USGA qualifiers. It is also a good place for juniors with a golf academy and a nine-hole youth links golf course.

This is a great course and a must play!
I have played this course multiple times and cannot say enough about how beautiful this course is! Plus it was in great condition for this late in the season. All three nines provide their share of challenges, which makes this fun and unique. I look forward to playing here again next year!
Fair rating on pace of play was based on the front nine. Front nine was slow. There was a wait at each tee box, in each fairway. We played behind a 5 some with 3 carts. I was surprised that they allowed that. I can't remember the last time I played golf behind a group of 5 players. Back nine went smoothly.
Cantigny Golf Course
Superb venue, a must play course for golf enthusiasts.
Staff is excellent and supportive. Course is impeccably maintained.
Beautiful course, friendly staff
Had a very good time playing an evening round starting tee time was 5:10. It gets dark at 7:00 PM right now so I was worried we would not get to finish the 9 holes but we just made it as the sun set and I finished the round. Very nice course, lost some balls but that is because I am a novice golfer, not the course's fault! The bar is very nice and it seems like a wonderful place to hang out with some guys.
We enjoy each time we go to play golf and sit and have lunch great facilities great people.
Staff was very friendly. It’s a pricey course but I was able to get a deal on tee off.Com. Paid $70 instead of $120 so definitely worth it. Had a bite to eat after the round at the bar and had a cool conversation with the bartender. Would absolutely go back at that price. It rained the day before so it was cart path only but really wasn’t too bad.
Still All You "Can" Handle
I had not played Cantigny in a couple of years, and was looking forward to seeing if the course had maintained its former glory. Long story short, it's still a very special and challenging golf experience.
The layouts are challenging but can be navigated, the staff was very helpful, there are great practice facilities and the 19th hole action was very tasty. The course was damp, but the staff told us they'd encountered 5 inches of rain the day before so with that context it was in great shape.
Highly recommend golfers in the area take advantage of this gem!
Pros and Cons of booking by 3rd party
Booked this round for a foursome on GN about a week in advance. Future weather predicted sunny skies all weekend, unfortunately it rained hard the day before my round. Course play was and stayed cart path only for the entire round which is terrible. Slow play, wrong club selection and the GPS that you pay extra for is pointless at that time.
Long story short, I know courses cannot predict the weather as 3rd party agents cannot either. The biggest issue was because it was cart path only, the course discounted the greens fees at time of pay. I had to pay full price on GN (third party), also used credits I earned to reduce the fee and I was essentially out over $175 by booking on GN.
Buyer beware, GN provides a convenience but sometimes it really isn’t the best way or most cost effective way to book. (As they advertise as a “Hot Deal”). My recommendation is to find the hot deal, call the course and see if they will honor the same price over the phone prior to paying with no money upfront. Golf Courses need to create their own loyalty for best prices guaranteed, not just best tee times.
Excellent as ways
Cantigny has a beautiful clurse great layout mice staff allways fun to play
Very wet conditions following a stormy am. Course does not drain well. Pace very slow. Hard to get into any kind of rhythm.
This course is top notch. Challenging and fun. And the guys that put your golf clubs into the carts are quite handsome. Eye candy ;-)
Played on a Sunday afternoon with some friends. The practice facilities are great. The people working at the course are really pleasant. The course conditions were great, except for a few bunkers with just dirt in the bottoms. Greens rolled nice. It's a wonderful course layout, built so that you're not seeing too many other players out there on other holes. But the pace of play was the biggest downfall. A 5:15 pace in carts is unacceptable in my opinion.
