Gleneagles is a familky-owned, semi-private club southwest of Chicago and features two old-school parkland-style courses, both designed by Charles Maddox. The Lakes (Red) course opened in 1924, while the Woodlands (White) course debuted two years later. When the club opened during the Roaring Twenties, it was known as Twin Eagles. In 1958 and 1959, the course hosted the Gleneagles-Chicago Open Invitational, which was won both years by Ken Venturi.
The standard walking rates here are $34 weekdays and $40 weekends (carts are $16).

Played the White/Woodlands course.
Old school course. Lots of rolling fairways. Most holes are fairly straight, no real dog legs or shots the required much strategy or imagination. Many of the greens are are level with the fairways.
Maintenance - Fairways were firm, rough areas were thin and sometimes bare. Greens were in good shape. Fast and firm, rolling true. Bunkers were OK for the most part. Some looked as thought they could be freshened up some.
Played in an outing, pace of play could not be evaluated.
Hospitality - Staff was on hand to unload clubs at bag drop. No bev cart service on the day I played. Bar and wait staff was friendly.
Value - Played late season with a cart for $22. Considering the condition, I felt it was in line. I would say $30-40 during summer would be about fair.
I was a bit let down on condition and design. 440 yd Par 4 is too long for white tees. Course should probably be par 71 for the yardage not 70. I think the greens could be updated a little by elevating them from the fairway a little.
OK course but not overly exciting.
