Beautiful course

To call this course amazing is an understatement. The mix of par 3s 4s and 5s is wonderful. The course itself is stunning. We played at 12:50 on a 90 degree day with 20 mph winds and with all the trees you could hardly tell. Greens were difficult but not impossible. Fairways are in immaculate shape as well. We even saw a deer grazing on the the 6th hole mid day! Arguably the best public course in Champaign county. 10/10 will be back.

Had a great time

I was late for my tee time but they very kindly hooked me up with the group I was supposed to be with. Great guys btw. There was a 4-some ahead of us that mysteriously became a 5-some around the turn and pace of play slowed a lot. They were not experienced and did not suggest we play through. Everything else was really great.

Par for the course

This golf course has improved over the last couple of years, but it needed some work.
It has a natural setting which they work to maintain. Lucky to have a course like this in
central illinois. That being said, it is a little pricey for what is provided.

Superb Condition for November

Course is n great shape! I visit here a couple times/year and love it. The Fairway grass is a little sparce in the low areas, typical for this time of year.
Used every club n my bag today!
A good golf app is helpful if you haven't played here before. Fairway bunkers are well placed, the app will let you know where they are.

Great value

The wildlife on this course is wonderful , it’s very pretty for a public course.

We were disappointed that we were unable to play through as a two-some (waiting for another two-some.)and were placed with people we didn’t know, but there was a two -some behind us.

It was a great round of golf. Even with fewer trees on the course than I am used to, we still managed to hit some.

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....

Beautiful day!

We chose this course to play on my husband’s birthday. We both enjoyed it very much everything was beautiful and peaceful. Especially enjoyed the five deer who are grazing close to the fairways.

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.
