I was somewhat surprised at the tremendous quality of the course at Skokie. I think it flies under the radar even locally. One of the more difficult classic courses I have played with deep, steep faced fairway bunkers I seemed to find frequently off the tee. Greens were fast and impeccably maintained. One of the features I liked best was the added touch of growing natural fescue areas in between the mature trees that dot the course. Very cool attention to detail.
