I've played here in the past and always loved it. Played on a Tuesday in July of 2013 and was very dissapointed. No refreshment cart, on course refreshment house closed (89 degree day) and greens were worst ever played (in my 30 yrs). Could not have been slower. Their reply was that they lost some greens last year. Horrible experience for a place I loved so much.. Very sad. Joe rolling in his grave.

MMy favorite story about this place is taking a member of a very nice nearby private club to Pine and hearing him say for the third time on the tenth green how nice they take care of the course. If you like a nice set up without houses and large greens you will enjoy this course. No blind shots, no poorly designed holes. In fact it is the same designer as Cog Hill with a few less bunkers on the north side of Chicago. The lower range and practice area is The Best in Chicago hands down at a public facility. They have a halfway house on the course that works great too.

I have played this course many time and find the layout great. Spacious routing with a great deal of variety. Unfortunately, the economic downturn has taken a toll of the state of the course and its condition has deteriorated to some extent. It used to be difficult to get a good tee time. This is no longer the case and I think they need to drop their rates as there are a number of good courses at lower rates in the area. Still a pretty good bet.

Pine Meadow is a very well run and friendly golf facility. It boasts an award winning golf course as well as a large and extensive practice area. I found the people here friendly and courteous.
Range balls are reasonably priced and near new. The course from the 'tips' is all any golfer could want.....most enjoyable from a variety of forward tees. If you enjoy golf, you will enjoy Pine Meadow.

The Jemsek family has run Pine Meadow since they opened it in the mid '80's. Golf Digest rated Pine Meadow the Best New Public Course in the U.S. in 1986. It remains one of the best golf experiences, public or private, in the Chicago area today. With five sets of tees, it offers a challenge to golfers of all abilities. One of the prettiest courses one can play in the Chicago area. Has one of the midwest's best practice facilities. Award winning pro shop with a friendly, helpful staff. I play here every chance I get.
