Indian Lakes Resort - Hilton Chicago
Better than most
This is my first round this year at Indian Lakes and was very pleased with the course condition this late in the year. I would rate the current course condition as outstanding. Fairways and greens were well maintained.

By Far the Best Value in the Area
I have golfed in this area for the past 13 years and I live (Wood Dale) by two DuPage golf courses (Oak & Maple). I golf 50-60 rounds per summer. My buddies and I have made an art out of finding the best value, the best coupons, at the course that are the most fun. The Best Value and the Best Course, with the Best Staff - NO QUESTION - is Indian Lakes. That's it.

Fun course. 3 nines. Pay attention to short putts as greens have subtle breaks. Very fair course. Greens are undulating. Bunkers are to be avoided and there are a lot of them.

Great Course, good value!
Nice track. Played as a single; $49 on GolfNow. Paired up with another single. Great guy! Pace was terribly slow; two SLOW twosomes, and at least two fivesomes out. I know it's a Tuesday in September, but C'mon man!

Nice course ruined by a very basic thing
We took a midweek trip (Wednesday) to the suburbs to entertain a client and relax on a beautiful day for golf. Sunny 72 degrees and vurtually no wind.
When we arrived there was no one to greet us, so we walked through what seemed like a dated entry way into the club house. The clerk never greeted me, I walked right up to the counter and greeted him. I paid for our 4 some and he gave us directions.
Once we were outside, we met Frank. I am guessing is the golf super but not for sure. He was a pleasant man with a lot of knowledge of course and very willing to share. He instructed us where to tee off and also told us about the halfway house, said if it wasn't open at the turn that we could go inside the restaurant to grab lunch.
So off we go. About the 3rd hole we looking for the beverage cart but found nothing. 6th hole, 7th hole still nothing.
We reached the turn and the halfway house was boarded up so we decided to grab a quick bite inside. Walked into the restaurant and again no one was there to greet us. I finally found a server and asked if we could grab a couple of hotdogs and some beers and be on our way. She then told me they did not have hotdogs. So I asked about burgers. Sure she said. To cut this long story a little shorter....Our 4 some spent an hour in the halfway house and $60 on 2 burgers and 2 club sandwiches. I asked about a beverage cart and was told there isn't one. So we ordered 12 Coors Lights and some ice. The waitress comes back with 5 Coors and 7 Mileler Lites because they are out of Coors.
I understand that F&B is not a general function of a golf course but a simple beer and hotdog should ALWAYS be accessable. Especially when it is sitting on a Hilton property.
Decent round of golf for $50 but ruined by this issue.

I played the Island and the Woodland courses. Both were very nice. The only problem that I had was that the greens were potmarked with unfixed divets. A little irritating. Other than that, I loved the course.

the courses all have nice layouts, but the island is my favorite
what could I say, fairways were smooth and greens were fabulous.

nice layout...well maintained
We played Island/Woodland. The course was in wonderful condition. The greens were not overly fast. There are many traps with lots of sand in each one. There are some hard holes and some birdie holes. It is a good test of golf.
