Know what you are getting, and that is great value at a friendly staffed and quick paced course. Some fun change in elevations. Some conditions are not great, but again for the value it is top notch.

Pros: Good pace of play. Staff friendly. Nice elevation changes, good value. Cons: no tee boxes (no excuse for that even if early in year), limited yardage markers, no gps in carts, greens very slow.. greens arrated with no advance notification.

This is an excellent course but they need to make space for a driving range

The elevation changes between holes are very nice and the course layout is up and down and somewhat hilly which is really unique for the chicago area

played here a few months ago and the course was in great shape....however june rains put a lot of the holes underwater..they havent recovered..

not told about this when making t time..

additionally when making t time we we told and were under the opinion we were getting the 4 for 120$special...when we arrived we were told we needed a "hard copy" coupon to get special..told fee was $43 each..we eventually were given the $36 senior rate..

not a big deal money wise but kind of put a damper on the day....

weve been playing here for over 40 years...wont play it again this year..maybe next year

Played here many times and have never come across such dire conditions. Looked like there were large areas of flooding that has killed the turf. Many, many areas were "Under Repair."

Stay away for a couple months until problem has been remedied.

While driving in, you're a bit skeptical as to where you may have just booked... as you weave in and out of an older neighborhood and alongside a chain-linked fence - but I assure you, the views once you're out on the course make up for all of it.

The elevation changes are unlike most courses you'll play in Illinois, which makes for a an entirely new experience to most natives around the state.

Overall, I loved the course! It was pretty simplistic and straight forward, so all golfers should feel very invited.

The staff in the Pro Shop and in the Grill were phenomenal. Unfortunately, in terms of food offerings, it was very limited.

I will definitely be back to play again... looking forward to doing so in the fall when all the leaves begin changing colors!
