Best 9 hole in Illinois.
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Great use of changing elevation.
Good mix of long / technical holes.
Cons: Easy to lose discs.
Broken signs make it difficult to find the right basket or next hole.
Some holes share cross each other. hole 6 crosses hole 2. Hole 4 and hole 5 share a fairway. Hole 7 crosses hole 9. This could be a problem if it was ever busy.
Other Thoughts: This is my favorite 9 hole in Illinois. Hole 3 is amazing. It is a blind shot over a gully, and if you have never played this course before you have no idea that there is a second, slightly smaller, gully between you and the basket.
** There is a running path atop the hill, between the gullies, so exercise caution when teeing off.**
Hole 6 might be my favorite hole, anywhere. You tee off from the top of a ridge, through a narrow window, The narrow fairway is lined with tall grass making it difficult of find errant discs. It is very challenging, but very fun. Holes 3 & 6 are the reason I gave this course a 3.5, otherwise I would have given it a 2.5 or 3.
The sign for hole 2 is broken, so if you have never played this course before, you will have no clue which basket you are throwing to.
I don't live anywhere near this course, but i go whenever I am able to make the drive. It is worth it.

Pros: -Excellent 9 Hole
-Easy to get to
-Nice course set up
-Definently worth the drive
Cons: -No concrete tees
Other Thoughts: Nice challenging 9 hole. Perfect to play a couple rounds while your near Lewis. And on those summer days, you can catch some college chicas running out on the trails. And thats always a plus,

Great 9 Hole
Pros: Wow. Mostly wooded technical course.
This place is great and always empty.
If it was 18 it would be one of Chicago's best.
Hole 3 is one of the coolest I have played.
Cons: Lots of bugs.
Easy to lose discs, even with a spotter.
Kinda hard to find.
Other Thoughts: Lewis rocks!
Don't bother with the nearby romeoville course, it is one of Illinois' worst.
Combine this with the 9 hole in Oakbrook, Il and youv'e got something special.
