This was a tougher course than what I was planning on. It had some tight fairways as well as long par 4's. The course was under receivership that may have caused some deferred maintenance. Overall a great course for the value and worth another play.

Played on 3/26/16 and the course was in fantastic condition! Previous owner let course go in 2015, but new management has really done wonders. Plush fairways, trimmed rough, healthy greens. Although better than last year, the sand traps could still use some work. $25 to play 18 on Saturday afternoon well worth it.

I tried to play Piper Glen during the end of August 2015. We booked a deal through a golf app that I use constantly. We get to the golf course and notice a fairway is burnt up (brown) on the way in - no big deal we figured, sometimes disease happen. Go to check in and the clubhouse is a... More

Fairways and greens were holding up in May & June but when mid July got here and it got dry everything started burning up. Approach shot on the greens is like hitting the cart path. The management has no clue what customer service is. If it were not for that fact that I play in a league, I would not... More

I was in town on business and took my clubs because the course was only a couple miles south of my hotel. I walked in on a busy Monday -men's league - and asked to play 9. I was greeted and assured he could fit me in and he did right away. For less than $20 I played 9 with... More

I played this course April 16, 2015. Under previous ownership this course was always in the top 10 courses to play in Illinois. Now I doubt it would make the top 100. First let me say that the fairways and greens were in good shape but that was about all. The rough had lots of little yellow flowers growing everywhere.... More

Dear Golfer, I have recently re-joined the staff at Piper Glen Golf Club. I was saddened to read your last review. Although I wasn't here last season and can't speak to our short-falls-I can this season; we are striving to make all guest experience our number 1 priority. Please consider trying our course again. When I can be of assistance,... More

This course will challenge your accuracy with your clubs. Build within a golf community it is laid out pretty well. Houses and trees often restrict the forgiveness of the course, and require you to strategize you next shot.

This course was a great course "ONCE UPON A TIME". 2010 started the slide-have played numerous times and each time is worse. No sand-divots everywhere-tees are chewed up-arrogance galore!
