Nice little 9 hole course to help shore up your game. 6 Par 4's and 3 Par 3's. Des Plaines river meanders through the course in a couple of holes. Par fours are long and pace is good. Gas carts are available if necessary.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level
