Heard it’s closing this fall for a redo. About time. It’s playable but that’s the best I can say.

Rough fairways

Overall, the fairways and rough grass were not cut.
Very very ver hard to find balls off fairways.
Greens were cut inconsistently.

Great Greens, But the Fairways…

Overall enjoyed it, the greens were in great shape. I got a cart and might not have noticed if I walked but the fairways are very bumpy. Driving through the middle of the fairway was like going off-roading. The grass was fine but not flat at all. Still pretty good overall, I assume the course renovation will address this.

Really gone down hill

The pace of play here is atrocious. The range masters are rude and out of touch. We started 10-15min after our tee time the course was so backed up, and the group in front of us was slow. The group behind us complained, even though we were sandwiched. The ranger made us let them play through in the middle of of the fairway “because he knew them”, even though I explained to him we couldn’t go any faster. Suffice to say we sat on that groups heels the WHOLE time because the group in front was the issue, like I had explained. On top of all that, the starter ranger made a sexist comment to my partner. I used to play this course a few times a year, now it will be 0. There are MUCH better courses in the northshore for far better value, go play Glencoe or Highland Park.
