Shady Oaks Country Club


Featured Golf Course Review:
Shady Oaks Country Club -- Deceptive Shady Oaks
Review by: Matthew Daze The course is well managed, and has few unplayable issues. Sloping fairways, and tree lined holes had to the charm. Although the course plays short, it holds interest through a creative layout, and natural hazards. Overall it is a great course for the tiny fee, and the assistance in the club house is very down to earth. The surrounding area is breath taking as well, which also adds to the experience.

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.
