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.
