Quit after 1 hour due to pace of play. It was an easy drive to the clubhouse being we were only on the 3rd tee. Unacceptable pace for any course, much less a course of this length. I guess 6 hour rounds are becoming the norm in Chicagoland/NWI.

I play here a couple times a week. The course is very user-friendly but has a few holes that are challenging. The drawbacks involve upkeep. Cart paths and bridges are rough and greens are not in good shape. Overall, this is a great value and I would highly recommend it.

The course is beautiful and plays fair for the average golfer, however, the greens were blazing fast and plagued by patches of dried out grass

I hadn’t played here in at least a couple of years. I heard they were under new management so I thought I’d give them a try. The good: nice layout, greens were undulating and could be fun and challenging, pace of play was fantastic, the layout is good with a nice mix of challenging holes that require some strategy and some easy breather holes, and staff I encountered was friendly. Areas of possible improvement: the greens while soft had some serious issues with patchy grass. If better maintained, greens would have been challenging and consistent and great. Traps, while not as bad as described earlier, still have some rocks in them, but they were not rock hard and played well (just not crazy about poss hitting rocks w/ Clubface) Tee boxes where ok - not terrible, not pristine. Fairways had some patches of weeds/bad spots. For the $, well worth a quick round. I know the extra maintenance to bring the course to the next level is somewhat cost prohibitive, but I can’t help but think what this course could be with well maintained bent grass fairways and greens...could be a gem. As it stands though, it’s a nice fun challenging course that serves its purpose with fair value. I will be back when the need for a quick local round is in order.
