Glenview Prairie Club is an unusually high-quality nine-hole course, a par 31 featuring four par 4s and five par 3s. Unlike many 9-hole layouts, the Prairie Club requires strategy on each hole.. Both fairway and green side bunkers are deep and need to be avoided. There are two double pinned greens, so be careful you shoot the correct one with your rangefinder. Course conditions are generally good. One bad thing is that juniors receive a discount of only two dollars off. Using GolfNow, it cost me $46+ to play with a new 12-year-old golfer. This is the way to grow the game?

This wound up being a really nice treat to play a round with my 80 y.o. parents who now golf infrequently. Gas carts are available. The staff was very nice. They have 3 nets to hit into instead of a driving range, it certainly works to get your body looser. The layout is 5 par 3s, 4 par 4s. There is enough water to keep your attention on all but 3 holes, nice. There's risk and reward choices, too. A GPS device would be useful, especially given the shared greens for 1/8 and 2/5 and the nearby rough on 6 and 8. The course was very well-maintained. The greens were true and fast. The course seems to be a good course to share a leisurely round with groups with different generations, including the youth. Advanced golfers can try for multiple birdies or even eagles.

There was a severe thunderstorm that occurred late in the evening and lasted well over an hour. We were 3 holes in when the horn blew and exited the course. Upon discovering that the delay would be over an hour I asked the person in the club house if the course would extend a rain check and he responded as follows: "how many holes did you play". I stated "3 holes". He stated, "no, we don't offer rain checks".
Not sure why he would ask how many holes if that was going to be his response nor do I understand why a rain check was not extended based upon the severity of the storm and the poor condition the course will be in after the storm passed. Furthermore, his overall guest service was poor from his lack of a warm and friendly welcome to the negative manner in which he managed the customers after the storm began.

He would not play this course again.
