Featured Golf Course Review:
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.

Ruth Lake Country Club -- A great course overall
Review by: andy I have played Ruth Lake's golf course many times and I must say it is quite delightful and yet very challenging. The fairways are very narrow and if you miss it you will likely end up in the trees. There are plenty of fairway bunkers which makes your driving accuracy ever so important and the greens are sloped with bunkers near or around them most of the time. On holes where there is water it almost always directly affects your shot with water being in front of the 13th, 14th, 16th, and 18th greens. Also,the course is very well kept and there is a snack stop that is strategically placed in the middle of both the front and back nine. So you can stop in for a treat if you get hungry. All in all this is a great course for both beginner and pro.
