What a challenge
Found this gem in GolfNow. Had a little time after a drive into town and made a tee time. Played 18 by myself in 2.5 hours. What a gem. This course is challenging!
Front nine is tight and drives are not for the weak! It was like hitting into a tunnel on some and around curves on others. Very cool layout. Bring some balls. Both kinds.
Greens were true and held well. On the downhill par 5 w a road at the bottom don’t hit 3 wood. Just sayin
Mid iron is the play! (:
Lick Creek under construction
56 dollars for a course that is under construction is a joke. It is probably my fault as I assume it was posted somewhere that the greens had recently been airrated and half the bunkers and areas around bunkers were not playable.
Should Not be a Top-Rated Course
Don't get me wrong this is a good course. I found it on Golfers Choice Top Courses, and it has no business being so high on that list. It was a good value course for my $40. Pace of play was dreadful, which isn't necessarily the courses fault. Don't let that list fool you like it did me.
One of my favorite courses in Central Illinois. Always a challenge and just overall wonderful place to play.
Lots of hills
The course is challenging for a bogey golfer. It was fun to play a different layout with all the elevations, but it was difficult. Putting was not easy either. Lost a few balls but not as many as I thought I would! Fairways were in pretty good shape. They are working on replacing sand traps so once that's done, it will be nice. Our round took almost 5 hours as it plays long.
Lick is SLICK!
Always a course in great shape, quite challenging, and slick greens!! If you are not hitting them straight, they have more balls to buy in the clubhouse ;)
Great course. Great staff. 10/10!!
Always a treat
Played Lick for the first time in over 20 years since moving away from the area. The bent grass makes the course a ton better. A tough but fair test. If you have a wayward driver pack a lot of golf balls.
Too hard for casual golfer
The course is beautiful. It had just been aerated, so the greens were a brutal combination of lightning fast and bumpy. The greens are very difficult to begin with. Everyone in our foursome struggled. I'm an a golfer that gets out about 6 - 8 times a summer. My skills are not up to the challenge of this course.
A few blind shots, fast greens and some length make this a tougher than most course. Some holes are wide open and a couple are narrow off of the tee. I like a challenge.
Good shape except traps
Recent downpours washed out traps, left with mostly dirt. Otherwise excellent conditioned tees & greens!
