Played course since new owners took over in 2007. Greens,fairways are always in great shape. Always see the owner and treats me like a member. Free golf balls at the range before you play is a nice gesture. Fair course runs thru cool neighborhood. Friendly staff and rangers that keep a eye on pace of play. Play in a weekday league and never get tired of playing Lincoln Oaks. Good food and quality staff. Seems like every time I play the golfers I meet are happy to be there.

Played Lincoln Oaks for the first time and what a treat. $28 for cart and golf for this Bendelow design was a bargain. I live in the city of Chicago and it took only 30 minutes and well worth the drive. Condition of the course was better than a couple country clubs I have played. Staff was great from the minute I entered the pro shop. Hot Dog at the turn was a great value at 4 bucks including chips.Actually booked a small outing for 20 golfer in late august and the owner was great to deal with. Treat yourself to a course in awesome shape at a affordable price.

I had not played this course in the last two years and I had forgot what a fine venue this is. No downside and only $27.00 senior rate. How can you go wrong? I must play Lincoln Oaks more often.

The course is of average length. There are not to many sand traps. A few holes water comes into play. The course has six par three-s but they are challanging. The back nine seems to be the easier than the front, and my score reflected as much.
