Getting the kinks out
The Island course had no rakes in any of the bunkers..the sand was not turned over...The Highland had rakes...both courses had aerated greens...never a good thing. I have played here before under better conditions...I will play again when the course is in full swing

It was not clear when booking the tee time that all of the greens had just been aerated and it took away from the experience.

Great Round in 41 deg. Weather!!
Grabbed a great deal from Golf now, dressed for he cold (brrr) 41 deg. day and headed out to make the best of it. Course played senior friendly and the staff is very courteous. Most holes, driver + FWW got your green in regulation. Putting over the aerations was truer that expected. Eager to see how it plays when it greens up!

For an early round just after the snow melted this was a great course, I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to playing this summer

The golf shop staff is very unfriendly and rude. He is very unkind.

we played in the cold and slight rain. the 3 of us finished in 3.5 hours. since there wasn't anybody behind or in front of us and we had a tie for our friendly competition, we wanted a one hole playoff but the management wouldn't allow it. I could see this on a busy day. Today there was maybe 20 people on the entire course. 2 cans off pepsi was $4.50. Really?!

It's November, what do you expect?
While I don't expect much when golfing in IL in November, I do expect Golfnow and the golf courses to mention aerated greens and fairways. I also don't expect to wait behind fivesomes. Note, the rating would not be so low if I played this course any other time of the year.

A little heads up would be nice
This was my first time playing this course. There was no mention anywhere of aerated greens and fairways.... yet every green was like putting on a gravel road. I know it's common practice to aerate the greens late in the season, but a little heads up would have been nice. There were no signs, no postings on golf now, and no mention of it from the pro shop staff or the greenskeeper!
I'm a little angry that we had to pay full price on account of the course not being in top playing condition.
Overall it's an easy course, and a nice place to get out if you just want to have a good round of golf. I would't say it's challenging by any means. There are very few trees and most of the bunkers protect the greens only. It's one of the flatter courses in the area. Great for beginners!
The driving range is really nice. It's tough to find grass tees these days, and the practice area here is very large and accommodating. If only there was a way to know what the yardage markers actually represented ( a sign perhaps?)
Why they feel the need to use gas powered carts? I do not know. They're loud and they stink.
I'll go back, but only at a discount. And If I find the greens aerated again without fair warning, I'll ask for a refund.
