Best kept secret in the south west burbs. Challenging & fun course. I've been playing here for at least 15 years. Great place to hone your skills. My favorite golf course of all time
This is my co-workers home course, and he invited me to join him in June. I have played the course three times with him, and it has been a lot of fun.
The front nine holes are more challenging than the back nine. The greens are well maintained, but they are slow. The fairways are well maintained, but they are not pristine. The course makes you use every club in your bag. There are a few holes with elevated greens which will force you to hit a niece approach shot.
Overall, it is a lot of fun, and I will continue to play the course.
This review was for the wedding banquet portion only. I attended a wedding here a few weeks ago and was happy for the bride and groom, but the banquet hall, meh. I understand budgets and getting all the family/ friends together and how that can do some serious dents to the pocket book. But there are way better options in the Banquet Hall Land (aka, the Southwest suburbs.)
The customer service was okay. The bathrooms were clean. The parking was plentiful. But the food tasted lost. Perhaps it was the lackluster pasta and rubbery sausage, rainbow shiny beef or greasy bowl of chicken. Not to mention the vegetarian options (there were a few veg people at the wedding) who had the options of iceberg lettuce salad, rolls and salty instant mashed potatoes.
My opinion: No, no, no.
Quite possibly the WORST golf course I have ever played!!!
This is one of the few golf courses I have been to. The greens here are superbly maintained, and they offer lessons for the golf impaired (people like me). I had a set of clubs last year, and finally got off my dead butt, and decided to learn the game a little more. My instructor was a former golf pro, and tried his best to get me on my game. But unlike Tiger Woods, I never had an"A Game" to begin with, and even after patient instruction, I still am not that good. But he was just phenomenal. Not only is this a golf course, they also have a banquet hall called the Chateau. I have been to countless weddings at this location, and they have all been beautiful. The rooms are gorgeously appointed, and there are many pretty gardens and gazebos that have made for some outstanding photo opportunities. The food is spectacular, especially the fillet Mignon. The fees for morning golf with a cart are exceptionally cheap as well. Be sure to call for a tee time, because they tend to fill up rather quickly!
