Great course, excellent layout

Love this course, it's a great layout and tough, especially for a Muni! Fairways are tight, roughs are thick. Greens are in excellent shape.
Personally, I think the rating and slope need to be updated, they are too low.
One downside - the traps: some are excellent, some are hard pan (which doesn't bother me), some have WAY too much sand. A member told me today that there was a local rule n place that you can take a free drop because they're working on them.

They don't mow

To be fair this course has been in a wierd spot for three years. They are making improvements and the results will be in over the next few months. However, they have no second cut and don't mow regularly. You can literally lose a ball rolling in the fairway just into the rough on a drive. Some of the greens have had scabies for a few years. The layout is one of the best in the area IMO. One of the starters can be kinda of a dick. So much potential....

Very straight course

Greens, tees, and fairways al in great condition. Bunkers need a lot of work, hard and have weeds growing in them. Very straight course, would play again.

Don’t Go There For The Greens

Love the layout, but greenskeeper obviously didn’t get laid last night. Tough pin positions! Greens not in best of shape! But a fun course!

Wonderful layout, Excellent shape

Thoroughly enjoyed playing here! Not a typical mid-west flat course, lots of hills and undulations. Enough water to keep it interesting but not punishing. It's challenging but fair. Fairways are plenty wide, roughs will likely cost u a shot.
I'm pleasantly surprised how good of shape the greens are in given amount of play the course gets, very few unrepaired ball marks. Greens will definitely hold a good shot.

Pleasant Surprise

Visiting and was expecting a flat boring layout; it was anything but. Nice rolling hills with some beautiful holes. The par 5 15th stood out to me and played with my head. Friendly staff, highly recommend it.

Nice municipal course on the upswing

This is my favorite course in Champaign/Urbana area.

The course is in good shape for being a municipal with very reasonable green fees and it is remarkable
how much this place has improved in a few years. Many of the bunkers are being redone this summer which will further improve the course. On its current trajectory the future is bright for this course.

The site of the course is wonderful, being set within a forest and a majority of holes have a nontrivial change in elevation. This sets the course apart from all other nearby courses which are mostly flat and don't have enough trees to affect course strategy. The course is on the short side, but it plays longer than it looks due to dense trees in the rough and well placed fairway bunkers on many holes. The course design is nice in that the are multiple risk/reward holes and there is a meaningful difference on many holes between the white and blue tees.

The level of organized play is comparable to a country club with two weekly leagues (Wednesday has ~70 people with handicaps from +1 to 36) and there are many events/competitions throughout the summer. The golf staff are nice and do a great job of making the course a friendly and inviting place to play.

Great value and friendly staff.

I was a single and was the first to tee off. I found the course overall to be in good shape. The greens are a tad slow, but were clean and true.
It is a challenging course, but still enjoyable for the weekend golfer. I am a 16 handicap and thoroughly enjoyed my round.

Course needs some work

Great day to play golf and the course was busy. I can tell that management has put some work into repairing bunkers. However, tee boxes were a mess covered in weeds and many of the greens were in rough shape. Trying to putt on the greens were not fun! Many dead spots on the greens and some must’ve had a fungus on them. Overall, a decent course for the price but management needs to fix the tee boxes and greens to make it worth coming back out.

Great views but slow play

Our round took 5 hours because there were a few slow groups ahead of us. It was like 5-6 minutes between shots. Prepare to play slow, especially if you have people walking on the course. This was really surprising because we were playing on Monday.

Best golf course in Champaign county

This course has everything - Par-3 holes, foot golf, driving range, indoor golf simulator, elevation changes, undulating greens, lakes, and trees along the fairways. You can spot deer often.

Needs some work

Course has great potential to be one of best in area.
Wonderful layout, nice greens and tee boxes.
Sand traps were a disaster. Mostly dirt, rocks and weeds growing in them.
They need to work on getting some snack foods in pro shop. If you golf early, better take your own food ?
