Lake Barrington Shores Golf Club -- Nice layout for a good value
Review by: Ron Spears Lake Barrington Shores is little jewel nestled on wonderful rolling terrain in northwest suburban Chicago. This traditional, parkland style private course is not long, under 6400 yards from the tips, but it is tight, woven through the upscale residential complex, and is normally in excellent, private course quality conditioning. The greens are bentgrass and usually run about 10 on the stimpmeter. Tees and fairways are bluegrass and very well kept, although the rough could have a more defined first and second cut. Accuracy is at a premium as there are plenty of trees, well kept bunkers, and deep rough that will balloon your score if you stray too far off line. I give it a solid 3-1/2 stars, which would be higher but for: 1)the obvious lack of length and 2) the lack of forced carries over water hazards, which are all lateral except for one fronting the tee on #14
