The Captains Club At Woodfield
This course is a good test of skills
A fair but challenging course. A good mix of open holes where you can score with long, tight holes that can hurt your score. Greens are challenging with multiple tiers, but also were a bit chewed up.

watch your putting!
I played this back in 1999, and swore I wouldn't come back - the course was in horrible condition. I was told by my brother to retry it and we did and I am so glad I followed his advice. It is gorgeous. Very tricky, lots of lay ups, the greens were spectacular but very difficult - lots and lots of undulations and absolutely huge. OMG - stay out of the rough! I would definitely play it again, now that I know the nuances and where to lay up and where to go for it.

Great condition, great price
I have played this course numerous times throughout te years and believe that 2014 maybe one of the best yet. The fairways are in perfect condition with but only a few low lying wet areas, the greens are disease free running true and fast (a tad faster would be nice), and for the first time in years the bunkers are playing well (better sand, better dispersion of sand in bunkers and bunkers actually being raked and turned).
Very challenging layout from the tips, with several thinking golf holes that requireless than a mashed driver. You certainly use every club in your bag.
Staff was very friendly. Pace of play was sufficient. 3:50 with two foursomes in front. No complaints to register at all.
You cant get a better bang for your buck. $22 for 18/cart .

Great course with a few exceptions.
Course was in great shape and has a "Up North" feel to it. Has some huge UNDULATING greens, so it helps to have played it before to aim for the correct side of the flag. Has a lot of hidden trouble so you need to be careful and check the layout of the hole or consult your GPS often (not my favorite way to play golf). Only have 2 exceptions: The par 5's are a little gimmicky, quick doglegs and long carrys where it takes the driver out if your hands or you have to "work" the ball (we're amateurs)., and the cart paths need a lot of work, there are smaller potholes on I-75..not good for the back!

Very nice layout...don't miss
Placement is a must. Not a lot of opportunity to miss, tree and water lined fairways...really nice.
