Older course with narrow, tree lined fairways. Par 3's a challenge. Good ambiance for a city course, with lake views and near the water, so cooler on hot days. I play course weekly with a league and it is never boring. Staff is friendly and helpful. Clubhouse offers amenities,food and beverage options, and CDGA computer posting.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Best course in the area

This is one of the older courses in Chicago, located on the South Side of Chicago. It is a short course, 5400 yards, challenging, tree lined fairways (must hit it straight)greens are small, with sand bunkers on each hole. Course is well maintained, with a nice friendly staff.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again
