Big Run Golf Club can be difficult but enjoyable, challenging and sporty. The course has never stood on it's laurels, it has been reshaped over the years to compliment both the improvements in today's golfers and to take advantage of this scenic piece of land golfers have come to enjoy.

Hundreds of tall oak trees throughout the course (some oaks are centuries old), complimented by five lakes and Long Run Creek, will test your shot making abilities. 8 of 18 holes bring water into play. The course is heavily bunkered.

Its the hilliest course I have ever played, and the par 5's are a bit unreasonable. Uphill at 600+ yards seems a bit much. There also was little difference in the tee boxes between championship and regular. We only had 1 par 3 where it was more than 5 yards difference. The overall course layout was just ok.

A fantastic piece of propoerty and a great layout, but the lack maintenance really took away from the experience. The greens were very slow, and did not roll true, very bumpy. The bar staff was a 10. I would come back just for that. The course is a brute with a lot of long par 4's and some 600 yard par 5's. The greens had a lot of break and undulation. Many of the holes were uphill. Could be a great course again if some effort was put back into keeping it in shape. No bev cart, but there was water stations every 3 or 4 holes.

The greens were SLOW! they looked like they should have been fast, but weren't. The fairways were so chewed up that it was almost better to be in the rough. The tee boxes were fine. The scenery was awesome- but as soon as you get there you realize this isn't a well kept facility as the golf shop has almost nothing (including light bulbs). Its such a challenging course that if they put a little time and money, it could host another us open qualifier.

This is a great course for a pretty good price...although I don't remember exactly what I paid. I remember thinking it was well worth the green fee. There are lots of mature trees and a tremendous amount of elevation change for Chicagoland. The countours of the course are natural and the greens quick and true. I actually think they make you ride here, which is unfortunate but perhaps it is for the best. The course is very challenging...don't teach your wife to play here.
