Mistwood Golf Club Overview
This absolute gem in Romeoville has won numerous awards and deserves every one. Mistwood is cleverly designed and imposes all sorts of challenges on a golfer. Various holes have landscapes that look puzzling from the tee box. The confusion transported me back to golf rounds I'd played on old courses in Ireland years ago. Even though the golf carts have GPS with great maps, many holes took a healthy amount of strategizing to determine the appropriate way home. Try to play with someone who's played the course before! It really helps.
Mistwood is excellently groomed, and the greens are relatively fast compared to most Chicagoland courses (save for the north shore country clubs I've played, which are like glass). Water is a frequent visitor on the course, especially in Kelpie's Korner, which is the name given to the 4-hole stretch from 14 to 17. These holes surround a 65-acre pond known as Loch St. James and are devilishly demanding. The golfer's introduction to the Korner is the par-3 14th hole, a 200+ yard carry over water. Bring extra golf balls.
The course also boasts almost 20 deep sod wall bunkers. These start on the 2nd hole, forming a defensive barrier right in the center of the fairway, guarding the green. "Grip it and rip it" isn't the best strategy here; each hole at Mistwood needs a plan to score well.
A huge practice green fronts the large and acclaimed training complex at Mistwood, along with a separate green for chips & pitches. The driving range is included with the price of the round. The restaurant here, named McWethy’s Tavern, is actually the first building you see on the property as you enter.

Miscellaneous photo of Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville, Illinois. The sign at the 14th tee box, which is the first hole of Kelpie's Korner. It reads, "kelpie - Scottish water-horse demon known to peek it's head above water and devour strayed golf balls. sealbh math dhuit and stay on course!" Sealbh math dhuit is a Scottish Gaelic phrase that means "Good luck!"

Miscellaneous photo of Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville, Illinois. Osage-Orange trees run along the cart path of the 14th hole. I hadn't seen one of these before in person. They're about the size of a grapefruit. All part of the mystery and wonder of Mistwood... Which diverted my attention from ball I hit into the water on this 200+ yard par-3.
