For golfers who are just getting started, the right course could get them hooked—and the wrong one could make them bury the clubs in the back of the garage.
Our Patch readers know all the best fairways, the trickiest water holes and the best-kept greens. For newcomers to the game, playing a tough course can be as daunting as tracking the ball looking into the sun. They're looking for a challenge, but don't want to hold up the foursome behind them.
Our readers say Silver Lake Country Club is the perfect place to play. Players can choose from three courses at the Orland Park country club, which snagged just under half of the total votes in our poll. Readers talked it up in the comments section and left two glowing, five-star reviews on its directory listing.
One reader said, "Rolling Hills at Silver Lake has 7 Par 3's and 2 Par 4's. It's a great place to start out or play a quick 9 holes."
Another satisfied golfer wrote: "The best golf program in the midwest! Best conditioned courses, also! Beginners will have the best chance at learning here!"
