Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 120 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 August 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by challenging green Recommend for experienced player.Beautiful lay out .Course is in very good condition from tee to green. August 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Course - if you can find a Hot Deal This is an excellent, top-tier golf course. Fairways are well manicured and the greens run true and fast. Good mix of long and short holes. They don't have a "snack bar" where you can run in and get a "dog 'n a beer" at the turn. You have to go into the dining room and wait for the bartender - which could be a while. Regular price at this course is pretty high. I found a last-minute hot deal for $40 which is the only reason I chose this course. I rarely pay over $50 for a round of golf. July 22, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great Course That's Been Thru A 12 Round Boxing Match I have played Makray 10-12 times over the past 8 years and loved playing it every time. It is challenging and long but just a wonderful track. I haven't played here in 4 years and I have to be honest, it was beaten and bruised. Not because of lack of maintenance but seemingly from abusive and neglectful players. It usually draws a prim and proper crowd so I am guessing non-caring kids have been playing here lately. I say this because I can think of anyone else that would leave big marks and gashes on the tee boxes and all over the greens. Not just one or two but on just about every hole. My only complaint outside of that was the cup placements were placed in very strange and complicated areas. One was 7 feet from left fringe on far left side and another was placed to roll 20-30 feet downhill if you didn't drain the put no matter how soft you hit it. July 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Makray Memorial Golf Club The Good: Formerly on the grounds of Thunderbird CC, this beautifully manicured public course was completely renovated in 2004. Parkland layout, yet expansive off the tee with extremely small, challenging green complexes. Great course conditions and super slick greens. Top-notch clubhouse with superb restaurant, banquet area, and pro shop. Nice driving range and multiple putting greens. Very strong Par 5's, particularly on the closing nine. Decent value for quality of course and conditions. GPS on carts! The Bad: Greens can be so fast and undulating that the average 10-handicapper will have nightmares. Service is only fair for a nearly $100 price tag. Par 3's are relatively boring and limited dogleg variation with the Par 4's. Peak season cost be a little steep compared to other courses in the northwest Chicago suburbs. The Verdict: Makray Memorial is an upscale golf facility in many ways, except having an exceptional course or service. A strong option in the North suburbs, but there are more fun options for less. Best Hole: The long Par 4 #11 is a devilish hole that requires a long drive over water and an uphill approach to one of the smallest greens on the course. July 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value I had a great time, but got rained out on the13TH. hole. The siren went off and we had to leave the coarse. I waited for over an hour and finally left. It was still raining. But I had a great time. The coarse was in great shape but like every whare, people need to fix their ball marks. Thanks, rRoy Lovkvist July 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by I Expected More I have wanted to play Makray for a long time. I was really excited when my friend told me that we were going to play there. Upon arrival I expected someone to take our bags and put them on the cart for us but that did not happen. The half way house was closed, and the beer cart girl only came by 3 times during our round, Twice on the front 9 and once on the back 9. After the round, I also expected there to be someone washing the clubs but they did not have that either. I guess I expected this one to be more like a country club like Bolingbrook but it wasn't. Course was really nice. Greens are SUPER FASTTTTT so always make sure you are under the hole. id recommend it for the course but I don't feel its worth the $92. July 6, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Unfriendly staff Unfriendly staff with smart mouth. Did not enjoy my round. Will not return again. July 1, 2015
