Featured Golf Course Review:
Glen Oak Country Club -- Bring your control game
Review by: Tom Smith (Guest of Kevin Kalinich) Accuracy off the tee is more important than length as the fairways are lined with colorful trees. The small greens are surrounded by well-placed bunkers and then the real fun begins. The greens are fast, unless you have a downhill putt and then they are super-fast. Since the greens are so true, there are plenty of opportunities for one-putts, but also three-putts due to speed and breaks. Relaxed social atmosphere of club makes for a fun day. Pros, lead by Danny Mulhearn, are terrific golfers and teachers.

Village Links of Glen Ellyn - Nine Hole Course -- A nice short 9 holer
Review by: Bob K This is an easy nine hole course, even though they don't even have a slope for it. The first hole is a short 300-320 dogleg right, one of the easiest opening holes I have ever played. Second hole is another dogleg right par 5 about 480-500 yds, very birdieable, but a bunker can come into play if you try to cut the corner with your drive. Third is a 370-390 yd par 4, with a bunker about 275 yds out on the left side. The green is protected by another bunker on the front left. Fourth hole is a 120(ladies)-160(men) yd par 3. Another birdie hole if you can put it on the green, but it is surrounded by sand traps on the back left, front, and right sides. Fifth hole is a 350-370 yd par 4, with the fairway sloping to a bunker and a pond on the left side. You also don't want to slice your drive, because that'll put you in the back of the driving range. I haven't played the new green yet, but the temporary green is very hard and very fast. Sixth hole is another 370-390 yd par four, with bunkers on the left and right side 230-280 yds out. Then it's uphill to a green with bunkers on the front-left and back sides. Seventh hole is a 470-490 yd par five with bunkers in the fairway like the 6th. The green has more bunkers than the 6th, but is birdieable. Eighth hole is a 160-190 yd par three, uphill. Not too hard except for the length. Ninth and final hole is a 340-360 yd par 4, with a big willow tree on the left and a bunker farther up on the right, with a pond on the left past the willow. Avoid these hazards and you'll be fine. I have a 18 hdcp, and I can shoot about a 43 on this course.
