Byron Hills Golf Course -- Byron Hills, What day is it?
Review by: John Bailey Depending on the day, Byron Hills can either offer a pleasant diversion for a summer day, or the golf equivalent of World War III. The character of the course changes dramatically depending on Pin and Tee placements. Hole #5 is a perfect example of this phenomenon. If the pin is placed in the middle to back of the green, it is very approachable and in some locations, the ball will collect near the hole. If the pin is placed in the front, it is nearly impossible to putt and keep the ball on the green if you are above the hole. When the summer heat hits, the greens become very firm, lightening fast and the nearly impossible becomes the absolutely impossible. The staff is friendly and courteous. The course is kept in excellent condition and the carts are mint. To sum up, the course provides an excellent test of shot making and course management, with plenty of opportunity to play the "Risk/Reward" game thrown in as a bonus. I enjoy Byron Hills very much and you probably will also.

Jackson Park Golf Club -- Very Disapointed
Review by: Dawn I played this course last year and I really enjoyed it. I played it again yesterday and it was in such terrible shape, I could cry. I was completely appalled at the condition.. I understand that we are experiencing a drought, but come on. I did see sprinkler heads placed in frequent intervals, clearly they are not being used. This course should be a crowning jewel for our city. It is an embarrasment. I have shared my sentiment with both the park district and Kemper - I know I am not the only one who feels this way. Hopefully there will be improvements.
