Slow Play

Nice course, overall in good shape. People need to replace their ball marks in the greens, some holes were pretty bad. The Ranger needs to act when pace of play is poor. We had a foursome in front of us that were drinking heavily and tore the crap out of the course. They tipped over a cart (on the 13th hole tee box), drove carts over the tees boxes, took several tee shots on each hole, threw clubs and left several large divots in the fairways by taking Happy Gilmore like shots. It was pretty bad playing behind them and the ranger was oblivious.

Walkers on the 4th of July Weekend

Why would the starter and golf shop let walkers out on the Friday of a Holiday Weekend? That decision slowed down the whole course. Also, there were 2 rangers driving around, but not doing anything about the slow down, why have them out there?

Good public course!

We played in the rain so the ground was pretty soaked, but I loved the course. Nice and long for women.

Very Sporty Local Course

First time playing Water's Edge, as it did not disappoint. Pro-shop people were very friendly and helpful, as it was a kind gesture to be given a free small bucket of range balls. Course layout can be played in a variety of ways, and can be challenging with tight fairways and quick greens with a lot of undulations. You can't hit your ball from the fairways or putting the greens erratically without paying a price. Played the White tees to learn the course, but looking forward to coming back and will move back to the Blue's to add more challenge. All players, please repair your ball marks (and several others) to keep greens nice for others.

Not the best. Not the worst.

A few interesting holes. Could be a quality track with better funding. Pace of play was untenable for a Tuesday late morning/early afternoon round. Poor spacing of tee times. Got rolled up on by a single on the first hole (par 5) while we were putting. We played as a twosome and also reached in two…

Overall, not the worst public course in the area. Would put it in a Tier 3 behind maybe a Dubsdread/Mistwood in Tier 1 with Harborside/The Preserve in Tier 2.

A nice day at Water's Edge in Worth IL

Another pleasant day at Water's Edge today with a helpful staff and a nice layout. The course was nicely cleaned up after serious thunderstorms came through the night before. Really enjoyed our day.

Waters Edge

Course is in great shape. Pace of play was really good. Hit out of one trap and it had sand in it. Rough was cut but thick. Could find balls off the fairway. Enjoyed the round. Greens were true with undulations.
