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.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Fall Golf
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by alberry68 Really Nice Course
Well maintained course. Rough wasn't a jungle, and greens were in very good shape. Tee boxes were a little soft, but cut perfectly and very nice compared to most public courses. Layout wasn't too challenging, and extra distance from the back tees made up for the straight forward holes. Played solo late morning on a Friday and finished within 3 hours. Found a $19 Golf Now special with cart, but was worth much more. Great value. Will play again.

This course has come a long way since I first played it back ten years ago. the conditioning is great. The course is maintained and it shows. Fairways are like carpet, but don't get caught in the rough. Greens roll good, but tricky. Must make sure you're on the correct side putting, your going to need speed, touch and feel touch. If not count on a lot of three putts, just saying.
