This is one of the best public courses you will ever play. its about as difficult a course as you will get. NO weak holes,and at 80 dollars is the best value gold I have played in the US

Upscale priced course not quite a links course and not quite parkland style. A hybrid, somewhere in between. Mostly flat with a little elevation change. Big fairways and big greens. The greens are multi level, with some interesting putting angles.
Agree with rmigolf3, a great place to play once a year, at $90/round in the summer months, it's a not a very good value. I played for $49 w/cart, on fall rates. Don't get me wrong, this is one of the top courses in the Chicago area.

Maintenance - played on aerated greens, so it is tough evaluate, but in good shape in spite of this. Bunkers on all but one hole were in great shape, despite the overnight rain.

Pace of play - was glacial due to a coed group of elderly golfers that never heard of allowing faster groups to play through.

Hospitality - Pro shop staff moved my tee time up prior to my arrival.

Great scenery though out the course. A couple holes were close to the highway however.

No Cart service on this day. Water fountains on only a few holes. Restaurant for dining after your round or a snack at the turn.

Pro shop stocked with mostly apparel, not much equipment.

Carts are electric and no GPS.

Love the course. Some rough spots due to bad summer storms. Really tough from back tees.
