Beautiful course that is well designed. The course provides excellent shots and difficulties for all levels. The pro shop is an amazing addition as well!

This is an OUTSTANDING course that uses everything nature made available to create a very challenging course with multiple tee pads that change difficulty significantly. There's also a wonderful disc shop in the back parking lot with a great selection of discs.

The only reason I don't give this course a top rating is because it's a very difficult course to walk. Granted, I'm in my 40's, but every time I play this course my back and knees are down for the next two days.

The Canyons at Dellwood Park is the best disc golf course around the south suburbs of Chicago. The course is regularly maintained and contains an on-site Pro Shop selling any disc golf necessities a player could need and the course also contains restrooms and pavilions as well. The 27 hole layout gives a variation of terrain including: forests, fields, hills, and a creek that runs along many holes. The course is built very nicely with a smooth and easy to follow layout that has signs to guide you to the next hole. The tee pads are made out of cement and each hole contains an easy-to read tee sign allowing players to decide the perfect shot for each hole. The course contains three different tee difficulties on each hole allowing for beginners and experienced players alike to have fun, challenging rounds.

best course in the south suburbs. The new holes are amazing. seems like the course is improved upon by the township every month. You won't find a better course around here unless you travel to Indiana to play at Lemon Lakes in the state park

A very scenic park with nice facilities and a large stream running through it. Cement tees with great tee signs and signs guiding you to each hole. Steep drop offs, down to the creek bed, on many holes. Plenty of trees in fairways, roughs and around baskets to make your life miserable, as well. I just played in early spring, when no leaves are on the trees, yet, so I'm sure this course will be 10 times harder with full vegetation. Still, some holes have great designs. I took off a chain and gave 4 out of 5 because the layout is a bit broken, between tees. It could flow a bit better in the course layout.

Great new course! The tee pads are a nice concrete and the holes are all clear of excess debris. Every hole switches it up nicely and the variety keeps the round from being boring. It ranges well from wooded to wide open holes that you can really rip it on. I would say this is probably going to be one of my favorites since it seems like it will be well maintained and lots of fun!
