Wilmette is a great new (4 years) layout that had some turf issues last year, but the condition this spring, despite the lousy weather is very good.

He would play this course again.

This is a par-70 course. There are 6-7 par-4s that play very long. I prefer a more balanced layout.

Driving range is smack in the middle of the course and range balls scattered all over several adjacent holes. Ugly.

Restaurant patio is right behind 18 green. Gets in your head. Too much club or blade it and oops..

Not trying to nitpick here, but was impossible to turn left back on to Lake when going home. They really need a traffic light there. Way too much traffic in each direction.

He would not play this course again.

Always a fun golf course after a recent remodeling of tees, greens and bunkers it is even better. While not super long at 6,400 yards the tree-lined fairways will challenge your driving skills and occassionaly have you looking for that 3 wood off the tee. Plenty of birdie chances but only if you keep it straight. The staff and facilities are terrific. There is a nice bar/patio overlooking the 18th green where you can settle your bets. For roughly 50 bucks it is a course you will come back to often. Carts or walking with on course beverage service.

The Good: Completely redesigned after a tragic fire ravaged the course years ago, this Greg Martin track is a fun, sporty course with tough driving lanes and small, undulated greens. Par 4 variety is strong with several doglegs to either side and demanding closing holes. Course is in good shape and greens hold fairly well. Clubhouse is nice with full restaurant and bar. Practice facility includes short game area and small driving range. Good value for quality of course and pace of play.

The Bad: No GPS on carts and very limited yardage markers on the course. On-course service is barely existent during the weekend mornings. Driving range is pedestrian, even for a park district course. Par 5's & Par 3's are unmemorable.

The Verdict: Wilmette GC is another good, but not great, option on the north shore. An improving park district course with no fancy flashes, but just a fun walk in the park.

Best Hole: #11 is the best Par 4 on the course. A demanding drive must avoid water left and sand right to a green guarded by a pond.
