Read what they are saying about The Pine!

This past Saturday was one of my best experiences on the Pine Meadows property and it wasn't because I had a lights out round. It was the overall condition of the course, tees, fairways, greens and surrounding. Several times as I was walking down the fairway I just had that feeling, this is a special golf course and I am ready glad I am out here today. Then after the round I have an opportunity to see all the latest style of Foot Joys and while I'm at it I could have a professional fitting to make sure the shoe fit correctly to enhance their comfort. Something you don't see very often.

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed playing Pine Meadows yesterday with the Blumenshine group. With all the bad weather we have had the course was in great shape. Thanks again for hosting the group. It is a trip we look forward to each year….

Thank you again for another wonderful event. The facility looked great, the staff was friendly and outgoing (as always) and pace of play was fantastic. Our last group actually finished in 4:30 on the button, which for 69 players, I can't ask for any better.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank both of you and your staff for the course conditions during the Super Senior Open last week. The greens and fairways were all excellent and, when I was in the fairway, I had nothing but great lays as well as true rolls on all the greens.  I appreciate the hard work it takes to bring a course to its top conditions and keeping it there with the amount of play it received through the summer.  Keep up the great work and I look forward to playing your course in years to come.  A great course in great condition.  

Thanks again to both of you and your excellent staff.  -

We have hosted numerous professional events at Pine Meadow, and over the past few seasons, the golf course conditions have improved to championship levels.  The care and dedication to providing a top notch golf experience is evident as soon as you set foot on the first tee.

The course looks great and seems to be well on its way to getting back into top condition.  I look forward to getting back out there son, and have already begun telling my friends how much the greens have improved.

It has become obvious that the plan you guys put in place is working, keep it up.  We once again are proud to call Pine Meadow, “our club”.

Dedication to your golfing experience is felt in every contact with Mr. Johnsen's staff.  Coupled with a great course and wonderful practice facility, it is a great golfing environment. Public golf doesn’t get any better.

The Mundelein spire, as it peeks over the pine treed line that borders the practice range, brings one back to a simpler time... one of honest politicians, balanced budgets, secure borders....a Norman Rockwellian experience.  A flushed shot at the spire is a joy forever."

Pine Meadow has not only returned to excellent playing conditions, the staff is very friendly and welcoming to women players.  Rarely does a public facility offer such great shopping for both men and women.  Thanks, Pine for a wonderful golfing experience!  And welcome back!

Pine Meadow is my new favorite public course!!!  It is a very well kept course that is challenging yet fair even for the most talented players.  The entire staff creates a warm and inviting atmosphere to welcome both men AND women!"

Happy Fathers Day!

After a terrible winter and an equally poor spring it's time for golf. Let me commend all involved for the heroic efforts to prepare the course for this season after nature did her thing. Over the years Pine Meadow has always been a great place to play. A beautiful lay out and no houses in Sight...pretty Sweet. However, the greens were beginning to look a little tired a few years ago. And I give credit to to the staff who recognized thisand decided to do something about it. You embarked on a program to revitalize all the greens and then came the past winter. Nice to see that your care has really paid off. Happy to say I played last sunday and the greens were fine. l'm sure their recovery is due in no small part to work that was done in the prior Seasons. I guess you proved that among other things that good greens recover faster and better than tired ones. Thanks for foresight. Golfing at Pine Meadow continues to be a treat. Even if it costs me $12 in gas just to get there.

It was great to note this last weekend that most of the greens are back to their former condition when they were a key part of what made Pine Meadow an outstanding course in the area. The actions the course has taken, most noticeably the removal and trimming of trees surrounding some of the greens, are proving to be successful.
I look forward to a great 2014 at Pine Meadow.

I have been a permanent Saturday tee-time player at Pine Meadow since it opened in 1985.  Pine Meadow has always been a beautiful venue, with manicured fairways and tees.  This year the greens are rolling better than ever and the speed is just right.  Without doubt, Pine Meadow is one of the premier public courses in the entire Chicago area.

After playing Pine Meadow since the start of this season I wanted to take a moment and express my appreciation for the dedication and work that has been put into the course.  I am pleased and excited to continue playing there with the improvement of the greens.  The tee boxes and fairways have always been great but with the comeback of the greens the course has returned to it’s status as a premier place to play.

Please pass along my thanks to The Jemsek family for their effort and to you for making my playing experience on a weekly basis, a lot of fun.

Congratulations to Jemsek Golf and Pine Meadow Golf Club management for the capital expenditures and thoughtful fulfillment of a well planned turnaround.

The"Best new public course of 1989", Pine Meadow, has always been one of the most beautiful courses in the area. After three years of intense, well thought out improvements, the greens have "turned the corner" and are on their way to being as good as the course is beautiful (I.e. the greens are "green",firm and smooth).

If you haven't played "The Pine" in a while, you'll be pleasantly surprised and welcomed back.
