When you pull into the parking lot for the first time you'll ask yourself, "Is this a pasture?" The first 5 holes are totally wide open, not one obstacle to shoot around. You had better deuce 4 of the 5 if you expect to have a good round, and that's easier said then done! Winds can make these wide open holes turn into a nightmare. Add on mid-to-late summer tall grasses and weeds lining the fairways and finding a drive that goes off course turns into a scavenger hunt.

After those 5 holes the distances and obstacles increase drastically. The woods in the back can quickly eat up those 2's. The back 9 is very tough with a good mix of length and technicality. Watch out for the dreaded SWAMP which comes into play on #'s 10, 12, & 18. #18 is the longest hole in the state of Illinois. It is well over 800 feet!

New in 2003 , the park district has only been mowing the fairways from each tee pad to the basket, adding an another obstacle to a fairly open course.
