Sloowwwww play

My second time playing this course. Great staff and good layout. The tee boxes are beat up but the fairways and greens are in good shape. The whole damper on my round was extremely slow play that wasn’t necessary at all. The foursome in front of me was maybe the slowest I’ve ever had to endure.

Worth the hour drive!

Course is probably one of the better conditions courses in the area. Greens are perfect speed. Not too fast, definitely not slow. Members/players who were out enjoying the weather, jumped at the chance to let me play through. Very nice peeps,

I think it was head pro/mgr that checked me in. My kinda pro, laid back, but friendly.

Gotta lil windy, made some holes play super tough, but I loved it, made ya really think.

Extremely good value. Will play again soon.

Nicely done Links of Jax, nicely done…;)

Gem in Jacksonville

The maintenance crew and course superintendent are doing a fantastic job at The Links at Jacksonville!! It would be hard to find a course in better condition anywhere in Central Illinois.
Greens rolled as true as could be and the collars around added a depth of challenge one doesn’t typically find in this area. Greenside bunkers also well groomed and contained good sand to shoot out of.
Fairways and first cut rough were in impeccable shape- don’t think I landed in a divot once.
Snack bar food was delicious- BBQ sandwich drink and chips for $5. Perfect for the turn.
Will be going back regularly this summer!
