Bad Fairways

Wilmette golf course has been invaded by Tall Fescue. There are thousands of clumps in every fairway. Additionally, fairways are very shaggy!

Has gone downhill over the years

The fairways are in mediocre shape. They redid this course a number of years ago and brought it back too fast. I ca think of 10 courses on the North Shore I would play before this.
