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.

Formally named the National “Natty” 9 in The Glen, The Prairie Club is a short 9 hole course good for beginning and higher handicap players. It is mainly comprised of shorter par 3’s and three par 4’s that one might be able to use a driver or long iron off the tee. It is usually well maintained and there are a few nice natural features on the course; tall grasses, water hazards, some very slight topography changes. Even though it is surrounded by housing and streets on two sides of the course, it doesn’t really feel like it, which is great.

It’s mainly a walking course because of its length and if you’re a better player you’ll probably be waiting on shots or for the green to clear on the par 3’s. I used to play here often with friends to have a good time after work or to work on my short irons. There are two holes with a shared green which can be confusing for some who are playing for the first time. It’s a fun little track if you live nearby. Lower handicap players won’t enjoy it as much, however.

This is my go-to course when playing with my 9-year-old. The course is very well maintained and one of the more interesting and challenging 9's around. There are about 3-4 holes where you can use a driver - the rest are iron/wedge range. It is not your typical boring executive 9. It has nice terrain, bunkers and water. There are only 2 shared greens, both are huge and not a problem if you are "sharing" with the other hole in play. Nice course for a nice price!
