This was my second time playing Orchard Valley recently, but the first was a scramble. The course is quite challenging, but many of the holes channel the ball back towards the center. It did make for some interesting sidehill lies. There's some water, a few trees, and some sand. The par 3's are challenging. I really like the course, although... More

We played about a month ago, and course was in good shape. Greens were true and well manicured. The staff was very helpful. Rates were very reasonable for us seniors

Wow, Orchard Valley has made a great come back, after being a disappointment last year! Eight of us played on Sunday at 4PM, two foursomes. The course is in great shape. We experienced excellent customer service from the staff in the pro shop (Adams & Steve) the cart girl, and in the restaurant (the Chef, bartenders, servers, etc.)! Steve bought... More

I purchased a discount package for this course mostly because that's the best way to try a new one! We were not disappointed. Even with all the rain we'd had in June the course was in pretty good shape. I would say this is a great course for the average golfer. Just challenging enough without getting overly frustrated. I look... More

The course was nice course. It was just challenging enough for those who aren't great, but also just tough enough for those that are a little more experienced.

Was not very impressed. The restraunt was nice, but the food was not what you would expect, and it was that good. Will not be going back.

Last April I reviewed Orchard Valley calling it a 200 acre cow pasture. In fact the condition was so bad that the front nine was closed for a couple months for reconditioning. I am happy to report that this course is back in excellent condition. You will enjoy the golfing experience here. However the experience still lacks starter, rangers, beer... More

I was able to share a round of golf with my son recently at Orchard Valley golf course. The course was interesting, challenging, and immaculate! All staff were friendly and they made sure you had a good time. Best, however, was the extremely reasonable price. Around my home town, a comparable course would be twice as much. Will definitely be... More

Poorly maintained. Orchard Valley once bragged to be one of the top 5 golf public golf courses in the Chicago area. Today the course bears no resemblance to this former claim. Either the pond dries up from draining for irrigation or the sand (mud) traps don't drain and become small ponds. Sand quality is poor. The course design is great... More

You really don't come here for the food, but it's bad. The course looks nice and I hear it plays well. The county can use the business, so try it for yourself. Nothing to brag about, but good enough.
