8600 W. Forest Preserve
Chicago, IL 60634, United States

Indian Boundary is the most popular of all of the Cook County Forest Preserve Courses. Recently redesigned by Dick Nugent, this course is well suited for all ability levels. The heavily-wooded layout and strategically placed water and sand, the course is both scenic and challenging.

Played Indian Boundary (IB) a couple of times over the last three days and right now the course is in pretty good condition. The greens have a little bit of sand on them but they are rolling really well. That will all change when the executive members fail to fix their ballmarks, but right now the greens are pretty good.
The best part about IB right now is the rough. They let it grow up and that makes what is typically a pretty easy course into something much more challenging. They are also cutting the fairways in a bit tighter and are adding some rough "bulges" intrude onto the fairway. The rough is 3-4" high in a lot of places and that's nothing to sneeze at. I've played IB a lot and I've never been happier with it then right now.

No offense to Mr.4putt, but he shot 91. So, grain of salt with him.

While I am not one with a single digit handicap, I do feel comfortable writing this review as someone speaking from a beginner-to-intermediate perspective.

This course offers very little for those seeking a challenge, given the following factors:

1) Over all, this is an extremely short course. Over 18 holes, from the tips, I recall using my driver 4 times. Most cases, I teed off with either my 4 or 7 iron. Allowing for a long to mid irons approach shot. For instance, on hole 6 (my only birdie of a rough 1st day) I teed of with my 4 iron, setting up an ~90 yard PW shot to the green. On hole 10, my party was hit into as we were putting and the group behind us teed off from the whites. Yes, the green is reachable from the whites on several holes.

2) Given the offering (hazards, challenging shots/approaches, well-place bunkers, protected greens, etc) of courses such as Gleneagles, Silver Lake, Odyssey, Green Carriage, George Dunn, and Cog Hill (excluding Dubsdread), the overall layout is not worthy of the $50 play and ride. Comparatively speaking, this course is more a $35 ride and play course. I guess one could view this course as an 18-hole version of Meadowlark (Hinsdale, IL).
