The rates changing daily, Dynamic pricing gives you the chance to find the rate you want. They welcome residents and non residents to utilize the course a seasonal pass holder. They have a beautiful water features including ponds and streams.

|First off I think the staff is excellent and has never been anything but nice to me. Beyond that for being a public course that is relatively cheap they have some very interesting well set holes which can be fun for any level player. Definately a great atmosphere and worth checking it out.
|I don't know where or what the circumstances were for the 1 star players, there has to be more to their story. I'm a 10 and my Wife is a 5 and we like the course as an alternative to $100 something courses. THey have done alot with what they have and I have never had a problem with any of the staff. However they are not going to pick up or clean your clubs, after all it's a Muni and I don't care for Pan Handelers of any kind anyway, I'll clean my own clubs and Windsheild for that matter. THere are Kids and The Marshals are lacking the 1 star rating people sound like fustrated wanna-be Medinah Members.
|RUDE..RUDE..RUDE..They seem to chase people away on every phone call.There is 1 lady that's been there the last 5 years that is extremely rude,all the time!! No tee times available by phone unless you have a foursome!!Summer or Fall doesn't matter.Even if you do reserve a tee time for 4,hope it doesn't rain because if it does, good luck on trying to get your money back!! DO NOT PLAY HERE UNLESS YOU LIKE TO BE TREATED RUDELY. I've played this course 4 times...All the same treatment every time
|Unfortunately, my friends and I were very disappointed with the service at this course. We had been looking forward to playing this course; however, the day we were set up with a tee time, it rained. Upon calling the course to cancel the day of our tee time, the manager was rude and refused to refund our money. we were charged $100 for a round of golf we never were able to play due to circumstances beyond our control. They even implied that in order to refund our money we would need to prove an emergency, such as a death in the family! I urge you to be wary when paying in advance at this course.
|Good little track. Well managed Good condition Fair price Thats 4 stars!

|PLEASE NOTE: The staff are not player friendly. Recommend to replace the staff whose behavior are bad for business.
|short course that was made easier due to ball and equipment advances. but the last 3 years the course has been tricked up with heather, pin positions tucked or front/back locations. course is more friendly as the temps drops like late sept, conditions become fair.
|no rangers, staff has no control, then again its public. (kids every where) but its lake forest. worst 9 i ever played, still shot 39
|Proshop staff is among the rudest I have ever encountered. I thought I was at the Post Office. Course is short and not very interesting -- in fact down right boring. Play is unbelievably slow. Would not recommend for anyone other than children learning the game of which there were many the day I played.
|Great track!!!!i always send a down fall hoping the course gets this, and will fix it...so the one down fall would have to be the putting green come on now the game of golf is putting the ball in the hole and you guys have those little stick things as holes...Otherwise good course.

|Not a bad course for short money. They've done some work on it over the last few years to make it a little nicer. The sculpture of the nude golfer bull-riding his putter was a very nice touch.
