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.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles

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.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

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.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

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.
