Turtle Run Golf Club
Turtle Run Golf Club in Danville, Ill. is known throughout central Illinois for its beautifully maintained conditions, due in no small part to the hardworking grounds crew. The course offers four different tee lengths from Snapper, the longest at 6,771 yards, to the shortest at 5,260 yards, the Tortoise. In keeping with the theme, the other two tees are called Boxer and Softshell. The varying tees allow players of all skill levels to enjoy a challenging but fair game. The interesting mix of holes will have you using every club in your bag. Creeks and streams meander through Turtle Run Golf Club, coming into play on several holes. Mature trees frame the greens, which already demand accuracy to navigate the strategically placed bunkers. In addition to the golf course, there is a practice facility with a driving range and putting and chipping areas to work on your short game.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Illinois
Pace: just fine. 4some let our 2some play thru... thank you!
Conditions: tees were cut and flat, fairways were good, bunkers were raked and greens ran great. Gentleman in the pro shop said they were doing their best with all the rain they had, but the course seemed fine to me.
Staff: very friendly.
Value: great deal. Wouldn't even bother with those discount sites.
Layout: course has some elevation and movement. A few blind tee shots.
Enjoyed my afternoon. Would play again and do recommend.
Nice course and a great value
The course is set on a great site. It is surrounded by mature trees with rolling hills and a creek that comes into play on many holes. From a visual stand point, 3 of the 4 par 3s are striking with #13 being the standout: An elevated green set on the edge of a steep cliff running down to the creek.
For an advanced player, the course is not very challenging. While the greens are undulating, the area around the green is quite flat and you can miss the green by 10 yards and be left with a straight forward chip. On most holes there is not a premium on hitting the fairway and many doglegs can be cut with minimal risk.
For the price point, this is a great course. It was in wonderful condition (the front 9 was immaculate) and playing it feels like a pleasant walk in.a park.
Top notch facility.
I have been playing this coarse for a number of years and have always had a great experience and the staff has been friendly and polite. The coarse has always been in great condition. The greens are always well taken care of. They have especially done an excellent job this year because of the covid-19 . I live an hour away from the coarse and always come back to this coarse even though I could go to other golf coarses that are closer to me . Thanks for the experience and your courtesy..

A fun day
Turtle Run Golf Club is in good shape; especially the greens and the surrounds. Water is in play on 9 of the holes, but is manageable with a little care and thought. The course has a nice variety of holes with the Par 3's very challenging.
I would recommend the course at any time of the year as I play the course frequently.
Thanks for being on GOLFNOW or I would have never found you! Lovely course with great putting greens! Great staff!
