The course is in really good shape for it being March. The sand traps were fair and the fairways were already dried up. The layout of this course is great for all golfers.

I’ve lived in the area for four years, but never played Foxford Hills before. That will change for sure after playing it today. The course is a beautiful design through mainly tree-lined fairways. The rolling fairways with plenty of bunkers provide scenic views on every hole. The course is in amazing shape, with the only slight blemish being a few bunkers that are a bit stoney and could use a little more sand. The recent heavy rains may have been the main cause for that issue. Otherwise, the course is as good as any public course you will play in Illinois or Wisconsin. Lots of raised greens that are well bunkered will challenge you to hit the correct distance to get on the green. You won’t be disappointed playing this course!

As the title would suggest the round took much longer than the time the starter says. It took.....(drum roll) 5hrs 10mins. Look, I get it if there are players that are new to the game. We’ve ALL been there, but c’mon. The only ranger that I saw the entire round was the starter. Sure it was a Sun, and a beautiful one at that, but the course should be on top of the usual Sun problems. I would STILL recommend this course any time!! I hope Foxford will try and help out with the frustration that us more experienced hackers feel with this kind of situation arises.

Difficult course but back 9 gives some chance to regain form. Pace of play is ALWAYS VERY SLOW. For that reason, and since it is ALWAYS so slow, I wont be back for a long time.

Course was in good condition considering all the rain we had. Only holes 1&2 were cart path only, it was 90 degrees the rest of the way. Most courses were probably cart paths all the way with heavy rains.

Read my review of 8/27/17 for further info. Pace of play was completely unacceptable yesterday. Teed off just after 11 waited on every tee box and shot. Took almost 40 minutes to play the 1st two holes. Two groups waiting to tee off on the par 3 13th. Ridiculous. We were dealt a really bad hand having to play behind two guys with their gals. Neither of the gals had any business being on a course of this length and caliber. Extremely hard to watch complete whiffs and their divots not even being replaced. Raking a sand trap? Forget that! 3 times one of these gals shanked and hit their golf cart. Come on. Was told in the pro shop that the course was in top notch shape. Not even close. Sand traps were completely hit and miss some mud and some with water in them. Greens pockmarked by old ball marks and many ball marks not repaired.....had to repair marks in my line at least 6 times..Some greens were recently aerated and sanded. On the first green one of my playing partners 20 foot putt took about 5 hops. Overall course conditions are okay but not as fantastic as several other reviewers seem to think. I love the track/routing but the issues and especially of the pace of play are completely unacceptable. Don't bother to play this place on weekends or a full tee sheet it's simply not worth the 60 or so they get. Course is a 35-40 value at most. Bring a boom box, cheese nips and cooler to party away because you'll be standing around a lot watching people of have no business being on a golf course tearing it up and not taking care of it.

This course offers a nice variety with some tight fairways and some wider, some long holes and some short and some large greens and some small. Course condition was generally excellant in spite of rainy day and some earlier heavy play due to HS team tryouts being held there. Traps could use a little more sand, but that's being picky. Greens were fast and difficult to read. It all added up to a fun and enjoyable experience.
