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.

Twin Lakes Golf Course -- Fun course to sharpen the short game
Review by: Larry Runge While this course isn't Dubs Dread or Butler National, it's not meant to be. With the exception of the first shot (long, over water), it's a fun course for the average duffer, with a bit of variety to the holes. Because most of the golfers who play here have more enthusiasm than skill, it is a great place to take budding golfers, as you are unlikely to have four drunken louts in the foursome behind you tossing a hissy fit because you're not playing fast enough to suit their highly-honed tastes. The course gets a lot of players and all seem to be enjoying themselves. For a Par 3 course, my main complaint would be the Geese-mess, but thatís a problem with most courses in the Chicago area. The clubhouse has been recently upgraded and expanded, and thereís a large deck along the north lake which is perfect for a golferís power lunch Ė a hotdog and a beer. The staff has always been quite friendly and helpful, itís a very relaxed place. While Iíve played the top courses in Chicago, this one is close to home for me and I thoroughly enjoy it. If you live out of the area you can probably find a nine closer to home, but if youíre in the area or passing by on Highway 53, itís a good place to work the kinks out of your short game.
