Countryside Golf Course is a Public, 36 hole golf facility located in Mundelein, Illinois. The facility has two regulation eighteen hole courses. They are The Traditional Course / East Course, and the Prairie Course / West Course.
The Traditonal /East Course opened for play in 1992. The course was designed by Bob Lohmann. The Praire / West Course opened for play in 1927.
The Traditional Course has water hazards coming into play on some holes. The most severe dogleg fairway is on hole #2, a 538-yard, par 5. This course's greens are large and well bunkered. The Traditional Course, with bentgrass tees and tree-lined fairways, offers golfers scenic and challenging rounds of play.
The West Course is the older of the two courses. There are several trees lining the fairways, two ponds that come into play on a couple holes, and sand bunkers throughout the entire course.
Tees: Black Gold Auburn
Yardage: 6397, 6103, 5278

Of the two Countryside courses, I prefer the Prairie. That said, the Traditional has several fun holes, amid a number of fairly pedestrian holes. The result is an uneven round. Worth playing again, but only if the Prairie course is overbooked, which it usually is!

This is a very old course with typical small greens, but in excellent condition. In 2012, a blight struck the course killing off most of the fairways and greens. It was all reseeded and closed down and allowed to grow in. The result is lush fairways and true greens. Longest par 5 is 600 yards. Lots of mature trees and green-side bunkers. Not many fairway bunkers. More difficult than the companion Prairie course.

Excellent value. Challenging but not overly difficult. I am an 18 handicap.

Course should have been closed until it was playable again.
