Rated 5 out of 5 by drivan Outstanding course, greens were near perfect
The greens were some of the most beautiful, best and true rolling that I have seen only on a few other courses. More public courses need to do what Mackray does on greens. Beautiful day topped off by beautiful course. And the clubhouse is outstanding, suitable for my wife and I to dine after our round. Not that many clubhouses are that elegant, that good of food, nice environment. It is nearly an hour drive for us from Hinsdale, but well worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by u000006145426 Hugely over priced
Having paid $92.00 I was expecting an immaculate course with fast even greens. I was hugely disappointed! The fairways were not well maintained with lots of patches of dead grass, we were told by the starter that the greens rolling at around an 11, evidently he had no idea what he was talking about. Not only were they slow and sluggish, they were uneven and very poorly maintained.
To add to my entire groups frustrations with the course the pace of play was bad, my group and that in front were held up for the entire round by a foursome who allowed nearly two entire holes to open up in front of them, resulting in U.S. Waiting for 5 minutes on every tee box.
Having played regularly in the area I can only conclude that the price point has been set bases on the zip code and nothing more. There are 20 courses within a half hour drive that will cost you half as much to play and are significantly better maintained.
Needless to say I with not be going back to Makray again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SprayandPray Some People Just Don't Belong
74$ on the weekend to walk is a price to keep certain people away. The redesign is great but the greens were beat up around the hole. I play at a 9 and I played with a gent who is a 1 and we both agreed on our level of disappointment at how beat up the area around the hole was. It was like a nice IPA, hoppy. From the tee box though the course can be breathtaking. Especially on 4, 10, 11, and 18. My playing partner and I also commented on how the course was hard, but not unfair. If you just crack into the single digits on your index, play the tees one set forward. If you're under a 5 go play the backs and try to break 80. This course doesn't meet the $74 walking rate. Blackstone, Golf Club of Illinois, and Whisper Creek are better and cheaper. $30 bucks on Golf Now was a steal though. At $74 bucks all I could think of was Judge Smails saying, "Some people just don't belong." Get over yourself Makray.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nathan1935028 Good course
A little pricey but fairways were perfect, greens were lightning fast and sometimes you couldn't stop the putt. Approach shots would hold. Greens could use a little work as there were ball marks from people not repairing the correctly
