    Some interesting changes to several courses. The Highlands now allows singles to book when there is 1 spot open and they provide a 2% discount. The Brooks courses also allow single booking and they have the option of cart/no cart.



    NIce to see some courses coming into the age of technology.




    It looks like Highlands allows singles to book with an existing twosome, as I see "1-2", in addition to "1", available on the booking engine. I've updated the main list on page 1.



    Where are you seeing the Brooke changes? Their booking engine is currently showing no available tee times for the next two weeks.




    http://www.golfnaper...e.org/teetimes/



    Seeing availability on the site. Their pricing is a bit wacked since they dumped the Noon price change.




    Weird, not seeing it. Clicking on one of the two buttons redirects me to go.teeitup.com. The engine shows no times available. I tried it on my smartphone, and tablet with the same results.




    It's a new site and possible not optimized for mobile?

    As far as flexibility with Phillips Park, they are outstanding! I play there once a week as an single without any problems getting on. Every time I call the Pro shop the person always tells me "come in and I'll fit you in somewhere". Even will let you start on the back 9 if there's and golf outing or league on front 9.

    Bump for the 2019 season. 'Let me know if you have any updates to the course categories. Given that posts are now locked after 1 month, I won't be able to update the original post. I will post the full list each time there is an update.

    Good list. Maybe I missed it in this thread, but one can book as a single at Cog during the week, and weekend afternoons. I too play mostly as a single.

    Not sure about 1-3, but I always have to call to book #4 as single.

    I believe I've produced a good initial list of regional 18 hole (public) courses. Am I missing anything obvious?

    Not obvious and not real close, but maybe add Cinder Ridge?

    'Not seeing it on 1 - 3. The website shows '2 - 4 Players' on courses 1, 2, and 3. 'Same old Cog.

    I'll add Cinder Ridge when they open for the season. They currently have no tee times available through 4/10.

    Sorry, about that, you are correct. I normally call ahead rather than go on-line. I guess it's been a long winter and I forgot. ;-)

  • Argonne69Argonne69 Members Posts: 22,224 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    It's 2019, and I still don't understand why a handful of courses believe that single players should be required to call the pro shop to get a tee time. Every major online booking engine can be configured to allow singles to book in some configuration, including any available four-slot, or restricted to joining an existing twosome or threesome. I wouldn't be surprised if they could be configured to allow a single to join an existing threesome only. As noted numerous times throughout the thread, there are over 100 courses in the Chicagoland area that allow singles to book online. 'No idea why the other courses think they're special. If I'm trying to book a round, I'm certainly not going to pick up the phone and start making phone calls, especially now that one is very likely going to have to wade through a phone tree before getting to speak with a real human.

    Update 6/18/2019: Moved Village Links from 2 stars to 4 stars. The course now allows singles to book a slot with an existing twosome or threesome, and it looks like there are a handful of "Happy Hour" slots where a single can book in an open four-slot.

    Honestly, the Glen Club has one of the worst websites in Chicago. Any course that requires one to register simply to view tee times should be kicked in the ***. I know with 99% certainty that it's a deliberate attempt to discourage non-member play.

    But it's also Fox Bend so it should be 1 star regardless!

    When I was checking in at the Pro Shop at Tanna Farms on Saturday, I mentioned to the staff that I haven't played the course before because their policy of not allowing singles to book online. I noted that only a handful of the close to 200 courses in the area don't allow singles to book. He was actually surprised that the vast majority of courses do allow singles to book. Now, I understand that he isn't the course GM, but are folks that out of touch with their competition?

    Hmmm...with the exception of the 3rd green, I've always enjoyed FB. What don't you like about it?

    The course is good for the most part, I've had numerous bad experiences with the staff there.
