Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 58 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great course! This is a nature lovers course in the heart of a scenic area. You feel miles away from any sign of man. Love it! September 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Always fun and well maintained Nice day at Oak Grove....always enjoy playing this place. It's worth the drive as pace of play is usually good and it's quiet/peaceful. Greens were rolling quick and in decent shape and fairways were bounding.....traps while maintained are basically a thin layer of dirt which is really the only drawback. It's a track that keeps your interest and has a lot of challenge. 4.25 stars.....they lose 1/2 due to the sand traps......greens are almost perfect but 1/4 star loss as they are getting a little chewed up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oak Grove This is a great scenic course away from any houses. You feel completely alone with nature. Different from any course I have played. There are a variety of holes and hazards. Good course for average to competitive golfer. Great price from Golf NOW September 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wish I had played better. This course is amazing, fun, challenging and all about your tee shot. An accurate tee shot is how you'll avoid all the penalty strokes I incurred during my round. The greens aren't very fast buy they roll nicely. Worth the drive. August 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Losing its Luster I have always enjoyed Oak Grove and have played it many times over the years. It is a fabulous layout (except #11, which you may read about elsewhere), with great greens, fabulous scenery and very interesting topography. I have noticed that it wasn't in as good as shape the last time I played it. That may be because it was still early in the season, but I suspect they are running this place on a tight budget (evidenced by the "pro" that took my money, got my coffee and was pulling carts out). The sad in the bunker needs upgrading and the overall conditioning of the course needs to improve. That being said, they have tons of specials online and it is always a good deal for such a wonderful layout. For those that say it is too far out, I agree it is a bit of a drive, but think of it as close to Lake Geneva instead of far from Chicago. August 8, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by More Like A 3 1/2 Star I had heard many times over the years that this course was one of the best in be state so I had high expectations going in. While I was impressed the the country setting club house and its surroundings, I felt it didn't quite meet my lofty thoughts going in. I loved the scenery and the change of elevation from hole to hole. The weirdness to me was one hole had the white tee box at a lower elevation than the yellow/red t box and therefore it's all you could see when teeing off. Absolutely blind shot and if you had a low shot, I can see how one could actually hit the t box in front of them. Another hole the tee box was the smallest I've seen, probably around 10ft x 8 ft area. Some of its shortcomings for me is no GPS. For a nice course, is think they'd have one available. Also the carts were so standard, they didn't even offer windshields to use or put down to enjoy the wind. This was an issue considering it rain considerably hard in our faces. Now that I know to expect, I probably will go back without the thought it is an Chicago area top course. Very nice and challenging but no where a top track for me but worth the money for sure. Good luck! June 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Oak Grove The course is in great condition. The greens were a little slower than in year's past. The only drawback is the course is in Harvard, not very close to the the North or Northwest suburbs... June 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Play Here The weather was overcast and muggy. The skies opened and poored for 45 minutes. The course became saturated and I couldn't believe how well water drained and allowed us to continue. The layout is serene and well manicured. Greens were fast and rolled true even with the rain. The course is not gimmicky with unnecessary blind shots, bunker placement or trees placed in the fairway. I wish I would have placed OG years ago. I will be back and recommending this track. The greens fees are a little too steep for its location. If you book on golf now or sign up for the newsletter you can get a better deal. June 15, 2015
