Absolute gem of a course
Course conditions were excellent for it being this late in the season. Greens are on the more challenging side, but fair, firm and fast.. Wonderfully designed layout, with challenging visuals. Watch out for the water on #2 approach if you're a first time player of Atkins.
Staff was friendly and responsive. Practice area and clubhouse facilities some of the best in the area.
A gem of a course. If you're in the area, and play golf, I highly recommend Atkins.
Great layout and conditions
This course is really nice layout and conditions. Played a month ago in the drought, and tees to greens were still green. Now that we’ve had rain the last couple weeks, the whole course has greened up. Fairways and greens are manicured so well. Tough to hold greens without spin from the fairway. Many sets of tees for my wife, daughter and I to all be challenged. Staff were friendly.
The new atkins
is hard as ever,staying in fairways is important, the sand is probably the best I have played in a long time, the staff was very friendly and I would recommend playing here
I was able to play at my own pace as a single on a beautiful Sunday morning. The course was perfect. Staff were all friendly. Really nothing bad to say.
A Quick Review of the Property
I couldn’t play my round bc I couldn’t get there in time, which I was super bummed about as I’m not local to the area. I did come late and use their facilities.
Beautiful grass tees on the range, good chipping and putting area, and excellent clubhouse. Not a bad word to say. Course looked gorgeous, can’t wait to play someday. I was left very impressed.
Course was in great shape considering so early in season. This was our first time here.
Layout is challenging, but fair. Rough definitely penalized you if you missed fairway.
Bunkers were well maintained.
We will play here again! Looking forward to seeing how this plays in season.
Didn’t receive a bag of range balls like normal. Girl behind the counter is eating fish and rice while checking in. By no means professional. Kinda got hounded and felt like Larry David. Never had this happen before. Hopefully next time during the week I can get back to experiences like the previous one’s I have of this course. Course was not being marshaled well. Play was slower than average.
I used to play this course when it was called Stone Creek GC and I loved to playing it. Now it is called Atkins GC and when I thought the course couldn't get any better, I was wrong. This course has upgraded and improved in so many areas. The layout now, the greens, the bunkers, everything! I thought I was playing somewhere out of state. What a great experience there today and the staff was excellent! Highly recommended and it's 5 stars all day.
Great Course / Still New
The course is in great condition. The only potential issue is the greens are still very hard since the course is new. I found I had to aim a little shorter with my clubs as there is a greater tendency for the ball to bounce on the green surface. This will become better with time. The course is in a very nice location, and there are many tee options, so golfers of all skill levels can play. I will definitely come back to the course next year!
Worth a long driving from Chicago to play it
Five star condition. However, illuminate lots of bunker, for easy public player. Add distance for college team young players
#1 white sand quality bunker
gem in urbana
Country club conditions at municipal prices. Must play if in the area!
