Course design - Nice layout, interesting design. Don't care for a few homes up tight to the course. #9 and 11 can reach Orchard with an errant shot. Not much of a buffer. Decent shot variety. A lot of water in play. Greens were slow and bumpy at times. Good undulations and slopes. Not a lot of break at these speeds however. No real elevation changes.

Pace of Play - Was great on the front 9. 4-some was gracious and allowed me to play through, 90 min to play the front, 2 1/2 hrs to play the back, came up on brutally slow 3 groups that ground pace to a halt. No starter or ranger on weekday afternoon. Had a chaotic/disorganized feel.

Value - Played at twilight rate $39,a god deal. At the weekend rate not worth it.
Plenty of other course that are better for the money .

Maintenance - Some of the greens were rough shape. I know the course had some trouble earlier in the year. Don't think it ever recovered.

Scenery - Nice scenery except for houses on the course. Bordering along Orchard detracts as well. Remind of several other courses in the area from the 90's.

Amenities - Restrooms with fountains and water stations every 3 holes. Excellent bev. cart service. Bar and restaurant. Pro shop has only apparel. Driving range and putting green.

Overall - Can't imagine what play is like on the weekends if a weekday was this disorganized. Not interested in 5 hr rounds. Nice layout and club house. Would play again if discounted 40-50 range would be about right for this course. Listed on

Course is in my top 10 in Illinois bar-none, very challenging from the tips. Course is in great shape, and they have awesome deals early in the mornings on the weekdays. I'm very happy with this course each and everytime I play small ball.

Very good for a municpal course. Some holes were a bit tricky, but overall a very good course.

Weekend morning rates are over priced, but look for weekday deals. Golf course is challenging and in great shape. They allow walking on the weekend, so that is a plus
