The Old Course. #500.   ![](https://dl.dropbox.com/s/54saiaga0udi4qv/20190424_124620.jpg "")

Been scoring in the low 70s for some time, but I had never broke 70 before. Today was the day that I finally did at Klein Creek. My putter had been hot for some time and it came through for me to get

I played the Preserve at noon on the 4th. The course is in great shape. I played really well on the front, 37. Then lost three balls on the back to shoot 46, ouch. They have to add some water coolers

I've lost faith with Village Links in the 2 rounds I've had there so far this year. If there's not a vast improvement next time I play there (if I play), I'll ask for my money back for my VIP card.

 

I honestly don't see a difference with how they are now vs anytime the last couple years...

 

He's just mad he still doesn't know how to play the 18th...

 

I missed this post but What? Me or ChicagoLefty? I make a par 5 there most times. Oh wait.

anyone have recommendations in the south west burbs. finally going to be able to play next Wednesday

 

Cantigny and Ravisloe are probably the two best.

 

I guess when one lives in the northern suburbs, every other suburb is south and west. :taunt:

 

I'd say Ravisloe is definitely south suburbs, and Cantigny is western suburbs. To me, living downtown, anything off of I-55 is SW, including Cog Hill, Ruffled Feathers, Old Oak, Gleneagles, Big Run, Bolingbrook, Mistwood, Prairie Bluff, and Broken Arrow.

If you don't mind a way bit south and a way bit west, Whitetail Ridge in Yorkville is a really fun track.

 

I agree on the course, but that one is waaaaay out there. Any traffic on I55 and you might as well get a hotel room.

 

In which case you may as well head out to The Bourne in Marseilles and make a day of it.

I haven't heard about the conditions yet this year, but I enjoy Orchard Valley's layout. Condition has been up and down the past few years though. Phillips Park isn't bad either.

 

i was thinking one of those for it being my first time out this year. just wanted to know if a course around me is in really good condition right now.

I live on the northside, Elston and Addison. The older and older I get the bigger the south side grows. I now consider anything south of Armitage to be the south side.

Made my calls this month begging for rounds. Got access to Olympia Fields, Chicago Highlands, and Rich Harvest.

I am lucky to have friends in high places and look forward to Hacking it up. ;)

I've really enjoyed Highlands. It's a different experience than most, although parts of it remind me of a very refined version of Settler's Hill.

That's generous. I go south of Lake Cook Rd and its like I am on Mars.

My buddy had an early midlife crisis, divorced his wife, sold his west suburban house, and moved to the north side of Chicago. After a few years of urban living he started dating again, and spent a few months dating a young woman from Streamwood. It didn't work out.

 

We were having a drink after work, and he said to me, "That's it. I've decided that I'm not dating anyone who lives west of Western Ave. 'Too d*mn far."

It's looking pretty iffy for this weekend. Saturday morning appears to be the best bet, as it'll be wet and windy after that. Sunday's forecast calls for rain and 16 to 22 mph winds. I may just don the rain gear, and have another "Scotland Day" at one of the local courses.

Buncha sand baggers in that league...

 

I concur.

 

But they post every round as opposed to someone who shoots a 74...and then doesn't post it. What's the story there?

 

Beer

 

Makes sense. After not winning any skins/par 3's, finishing near DFL in points and losing every dollar wagered, he ordered a Natty Light vs the regular imported, barrel aged, craft lager.

Oh for Pete's sake, you think going to Wheaton is a hike from your domicile.

 

What? I was in Glen Ellyn while you guys were taking Lefty's money.

Just moved out here. Played a quick 9 at Village Links recently. Awesome layout. Greens were very slow. Spent some time on the putting green today and it wasn't even worth the time. But I'm very impressed with the facility...and the price is right.

 

I read that Village Links tries to keep the 9-hole greens at 9 on the stimp and 10-11 on the 18-hole course.

 

Played the 18 last night. It's been a while since I've played 18 at VL. I enjoyed it. The greens weren't bad, but could have been better. Keep in mind, it's still April. But c'mon people, you've got to fix your ball marks! I was fixing other people's ball marks on practically every green. And now that I'm thinking about it, the tee box on the par 3 11th was in brutal shape.

 

Just played 9 again earlier this week. Greens are getting better. But I agree about the ball marks. I probably fixed 10 per hole. Still very impressed with the course. Back tees when the wind picks up makes for a real challenge.
