Rated 5 out of 5 by nealkotlarek Fall Golf at Foss Park
Few golf courses in the Chicago metro area can match Foss Park G.C. when it comes to course conditioning, value, staff friendliness and great food. While the golf course is flat and doesn't offer dramatic views, those are minor issues. The course is meticulously kept up and the greens are in perfect shape even during the first week of November. But the best part of the experience is the Foss Park personnel who strive to make every guest feel like a country club member. In many ways, Foss Park is like the old sitcom "Cheers." Go there once and everyone knows your name.

It really is a nice course and kept up very well. The staff was courteous and the practice range was nice but, well, mats. Pace of play was slowed by players ahead of me and frankly I didn't expect as many on a Monday morning. My game was way off putting me in an even worse mood and at the 10th hole there was a tie up with the threesom and twosome ahead of me and it took two hours for the front nine with this holdup I decided to just leave. I might be back but it's a 40 minute ride for me so I'll probably play closer to home.

Tee Time: 12:36 on a Saturday ($36)
Special note: $36 price included a burger, chips, and a drink.
Hiked almost 50 minutes up to North Chicago to play at Foss Park last weekend. The course for the most part is nothing special, but they do keep it in good shape. My favorite holes are #13 through #16. There is a small creek running through the course that cuts through 3-4 of the holes. Other than that, there aren't too many hazards, which is a disappointment because I feel like this course could benefit from a few extra sand traps and maybe a few more trees on the front 9. The burger provided in the meal deal was superb. I would definitely try to get that same deal again if I ever decide to return. Chances of that are unlikely as 50 minutes is a bit too far for a course like this, but who knows? If there's a great deal next season, I might take it.

Course is in great shape. Very windy day, hard to control mid-short irons. Greens were a little fast & tough pin locations. Great golf course overall.

A truly honest golf course. I'm a 6 handicap and have trouble breaking 80 here. You will use all the clubs in your bag.

Great course with friendly fairways on most holes. The back nine can get challenging with the narrow fairways when using the driver off the tees. Speedy greens. Always hit below the hole on this course as most are sloped to the fairway. Tee boxes could use some leveling but an excellent value regardless.
Somewhat slow service in the restaurant at times but decent bar food and a fish fry.
