True links golf. Located on top of a landfill, 100' above grade, so the wind can really impact play. The course has been lengthened a bit with new tees this past year, so from the back, it plays a very difficult 3000 yards. Deep bunkers, fast greens with lots of contours. Highest spot in Cook county, with great views of downtown Chicago in the distance.

Okay for a quick 9 holes. Wind can get fierce. Built on top of an old waste dump. Great reclamation of land.

Links course in every sense. Rolling, well bunkered, 100 ft above grade, so lots of wind. Very challenging for its length. View of Chicago skyline from 30 miles away.
