River Heights Golf Course

  11 Reviews

As promised I returned to this course to play the full 18. Same conditions and this track is very well maintained by the DeKalb Park District. It's a really fun not too demanding golf course.....greens are in tremendous shape and have some nice slopes to them. Course suffers because the the back nine is a tad bizarre when you look at the scorecard. The 10th hole a 200 yard par 3 from the white tees and back almost plays as a dog leg. That's followed by another Par 3 and then a very short Par 4. Then rest of the back nine turns into a real golf course. We enjoyed our day and the folks in the clubhouse are welcoming. It's worth a play at least once or maybe twice a year and it's a very pleasant course with some nice routing and design features. Recommending because the condition/speed and maintenance of the putting surfaces were some of the best experienced all season.

He would play this course again.

Only got in the front nine due to weather but found this course to be in very good condition....really nice greens...some of the best all season....really smooth with good speed and it was playing hard/fast. The front nine is too tight/tree lined in some areas - 1st and 2nd holes expecially - fairly well designed for the time...and getting above the hole on this course it a no no.. Folks are very friendly and course is very well maintained....dirt sand traps basically.... I liked the vibe of the place and it's a quick drive out 88 to DeKalb from the Western Burbs. I'll return in the next few weeks to get in all 18 and I am looking forward to it. $30, 3.5/3.75 stars.

I've played this course many times as a local resident and they are going the right way with upkeep. There are still a few ill advised tee boxes that really amount to nothing more than awkward closely mowed hills, but the removal of some poorly placed trees and the improvements in general conditioning have made this season better than recent years past.
