Not much left of Marshall Field's sportsman club. Suburbia everywhere, and I -90 bordering a few holes. Tight OB on some holes because of this. Didn't care for the neighborhood. If Hoffman Estates has a crappy area, the course is in the middle of it. But, I digress back to the review.
Value, I was thinking it was a steal at first, $35 with a cart. Course was in good shape. Greens were true and fast. Around 10-11 on the stimp. A lot of break on the greens. Bunkers were in good shape. Bev cart came by about every 3 or 4 holes. Water stations on about every third or fourth hole. A few portable restrooms available.
Pace of play was glacial. Not from a lack of trying by the rangers to speed things up a little. As I understand it from the rangers, the course is frequented by a certain ethnicity, that insists on playing from the blue tees, when the should be playing from the red tees. Two slow 4-somes made for almost a 5 hour round on a weekday !!!! Not once was our group offered to play through. Otherwise pace of play probably would have been good. All about timing I guess.
Staff was very friendly.
If I didn't already know the course was opened in 1970, I would have guessed 1930. It has an old school feel to it. Not long, only 6400 from the blue tees, but some narrow holes, well placed water hazards, and some tricky breaks in the greens make for a fun course, if you can get out at the right time.

Greens are as good as advertised. Not a long course, but a few untimely bad swings and you can see your score soar...fun to play, but look for deals on weekdays or late on weekends for best prices

Good course and GREAT greens. Be sure to putt on the practice green before your round if you're not used to fast greens.

Good Course. A decent test for golfers of all handicaps. Great Greens! A good value, even better if you take advantage of their daily twilight specials.

I was a little nervous when I only played $25 to play on a Tuesday, but I was very surprised at how nice the course was. The greens are VERY fast, but roll true. I would recommend this course especially given the low price!
