Good Value

Play this course before they increase the rate. In great shape, good layout. Greens were a step faster than anything I played so far this year. My only note of concern is that there is often a long walk from cart to green, might impact someone with mobility issues. Will try to play again

Great Staff and Amenities

Great attentive staff and course was in great shape for being 100+ degrees every day for the past week. Difficult greens with pace but bunkers were immaculate.

Riders

Course is beautiful and staff was super nice. What I didn’t like is there is a 25 dollar fee for riders. On top of the 49-89 dollars to play with a cart. Low income golfers will have a hard time paying for this course.

Time will tell

This course was in great shape even with some projects still going on throughout the course. Golf carts would shut down if you get too close to the green, some holes it wouldn't allow you to get within 75 yards of the green. Being a public course I can see that this is a good problem to have but may need slightly adjusted. Tees and greens are practically perfect, with hot summer days ahead of us the few hot spots around the greens will be a true test to the grounds crew. Greens were in excellent shape and have a lot of challenging undulations, could have been a smidge faster for my liking but it was a hot day and we played in the afternoon.

It’s Back

When I saw the course was open again to the public last weekend I wanted to play, but thought it would be packed. I was wrong. Sunday afternoon was wide open and perfect. Played in under 3 hours. Since it just opened, the course and facilities were immaculate and I hope people help keep it that way. All of the staff I met were extremely nice and helpful to me. Well worth the price for the quality in my opinion. Cheers!

Great round!

Weather was cool but windy. The area had received several inches of rain the previous week so it was cart path only, which made walking more time saving, but the course was in amazing condition. Great facility, good food and a great time had by all. We will return!

Quality Course, Good Value.

This course is nice especially for the money. Course was in great shape, greens in particular. Generous fairways to play from. Multiple tees (3) to up the difficulty if you choose. Almost 7200 from the tips could make this course difficult. Had taken on a good deal of rain the previous 3 days. Some casual water but was very playable. Although it was fathers day the course was pretty empty, have no idea why. Solid restaurant bar area for after the round.

Drove down from Chicago to meet my dad & play. This course in Chicago would be at least 80 bucks with a cart on the weekends.

Great Course

Another Nugent gem. Generous fairways and true greens with reachable par 5's. If you are in the Urbana, Illinois area, its a must play. The course was in great shape for spring.
