Grayslake Golf Course is a sporty par-3, nine-hole layout that has appeal for golfers of all skill levels. It's a great place for beginners or juniors who want to get some practice but it's also a quick, affordable round for more seasoned golfers. No matter what skill level, you'll get plenty of practice with your short game. The golf course is only 1,200 yards in length but you can still expect strategically placed bunkers and berms along the subtly undulating greens. The holes range from 100 to 165 yards in length. Grayslake Golf Course weaves through protected wetlands. The water is deftly incorporated into the design. The mounding is also a defining feature of the course. Not only do they add interest to each putt but they can also defect slightly errant shots back toward the target.

Very short but the greens are large and very well kept. Water, tall fescue and deep bunkers if you stray. Definitely worth the money.

Well kept greens, fairways, tees and putting green. First time there and enjoyed it will come back again. One green was a little scary as it was a little windy and a house was short and left of the green. Had to weigh all those factors and decide if it was worth risk to actually shoot for green. Staff friendly. Course is nice quiet with slope and plenty of water & sand. Worth a visit and musch better value than nearby Libertyville course.

A fun 9 holes. We walked (no carts are available) and finished in about 90 minutes. Despite the fact that it's a par 27 course, several holes are difficult due to water and sand placement. Great value and would definitely play again.

Course was nice, there are a lot of water and wetland features, more than typical for a par 3, took my 11yr old son for a quick game on a hot day so it was nice 1 1/2 hour time. Staff was very friendly, we were 10 minutes late because Golf Now has the wrong address! This course is on the far north side of town, their address took me to a Grocery store but the staff got us right on with no delay.

Great course to bring the wife or kids or anyone learning the game of golf. If they can hit it 40 yards in the air you could play with 1 ball all round. If not, bring a dozen
