Comments on Highland Woods
|I am in love with this course, please come and play and keep the good vibes here!
|Nice layout. Greens and fairways OK. Pace of play was horrible - rangers no help.

|Not a bad course. Greens are in good condition. Slow play because the starter pushes everyone out instead of regular intervals. Otherwise a good place to play.
|A very well designed, long golf course with a great layout on plenty of acreage. It plays over 7000 yards from the Gold tees. There are no close parallel fairways, which means you_re not hitting into other fairways or expecting to be hit into from the adjacent fairway. The layout offers everything for golfers with low handicaps to golfers with high handicaps. The management and employees are very nice and pleasant to deal with. Our group of 14 was very nicely accommodated and treated very well. We will definitely return many times.
|Nice course, but SLOW, SLOW, SLOW play, no matter what time your tee time is. Friend and I quit after 9 holes once when we realized we were on a 6-hour pace, course gave us a rain check for 9.
|Course was very well maintained and a very fun course to play.
|Not a bad course, although the fairways and rough was really dry. Greens were in decent shape. Easy course, even for beginners and intermediates. Not bad for the money. Not as nice as George Dunne.
|Over the last year, some nice improvements have been made. The bunkers are now in good ( great ?) condition and most of the fairways are well mowed.Many have said since the Billy Casper organization has taken over the course is much improved. The fairways are wide which is nice for us beginners. The outhouses are typical for Chicago Forest Preserves, i.e. deplorable.
|This course if very poorly managed. I've played there several times. Once, I was told by the starter to drive into the group of old men I was paired up with (I showed up to the first tee 10 minutes before my tee time after being told that they were running on time.) Last time there, it took nearly 6 hours because of drunk yahoos in front of us. Rangers called twice, never came. I'll never play there again.
|A great piece of land, and a half decent lay out. The problem is that this is by far the worst maintained golf course I've ever played. No sand in most of the bunkers (lots of grass though), and I think they mow the fairways once a week. Some of the greens had patches of grass that were twice as long as the rest of the green.
|You should put up low numbers here! One of the best maintenanced forest preserve course in cook county.
|Executive course. Greens okay. Bring only a wedge. Asked us to tee off a mat.
