Oak Meadows Golf Course -- 2 stars, could be 5 stars
Review by: A. Marcuccilli When I was a kid my father was a member here, and I got to play during the summer weekdays. The courses condition was very good for those days (1970's). I hate to admit it though, as this club has some very fond memories for me, but since the park district has taken it over the course condition has'nt improved at all,it got worse in my opinion. We all know that nowdays not just private, but public course conditions have improved greatly since the 70's, this course has gotten worse. It breaks my heart to see it in this condition. It seems the park district spent more money and time on the old Brookwood country club, now Maple Meadows, which in my opinion is far less of a course. Oak Meadows could be one of the areas premire courses if they spent a few dollars and a little time. This could be a very hard and challenging course, it still is in a few areas. Anyone who had played this course back in the day knows what I mean. It's just a shame with all the history and great names that have played there.

Lakemoor Golf Course -- Play it eary in spring before the ground gets hard.
Review by: RT Well, you get what you pay for. This course is really in rough shape, the fairways (????) are bad and the greens are not much better. What you do get is a course that you can usually always get out on and one that demands accuracy off many of the tees. If memory serves correctly there is OB on nearly all of the holes. The par 5, 5th is especially difficult with OB right and water left almost the entire length of the hole. The 17th par 3 is basically a penisula green that can be intimidating. To finish the 18th is not a particullarly long par 4 but extreemly narrow with water going up the entire right side and OB left. It is a shame they do not put some $$$$ in to this course, the layout is really nice.
