Typical small town course in Central Illinois

The staff went out of their way make you feel at home. Carts are old, practice tees and on course teeboxes all need replanting. Food in clubhouse was excellent. Pace was well above par for the amount of players.

I feel the type of weed grown in rough and on reeboxes hinders having a great time.

cost was affordable and great for a weekend

I DO NOT RECOMMEND GOLFNOW I REPEAT I DO NOT RECOMMEND GOLF NOW. NO FLEXIBILITY, NOT RESPONCE TO QUESTIONS, NO WAY TO REFUND IF SEE MISTAKE 30 SECONDS AFTER PAYING. I HAVE DELETED, AND RECOMENDED ALL MY FRIENDS DELETE THE GOLFNOW APP.

good bye golf now

Great value

Course is in great shape. Sand traps are wet and need grooming as weather permits. Enjoyed the round. I’ll be back soon.

Pretty easy

Sand traps are a mess. No turning the sand to make it soft. Also no raking.

wild and windy

While the wind was the major factor in our game, the dealing with the fall leaves was a problem too. We were slowed down by looking for our golf balls. Course is in good shape.

Good value for the cost

The tee boxes and a few other areas were recently aerated. Several small River stones were laying about that hindered a few drives and other shots. The greens were smaller than some others I have played but ran fairly true.
Was a pleasant experience overall.

The layout was good. But

We drove and hour and a half to play. The place was packed. The course was in very poor shape. The fairways and roughs were so high we lost our ball in the fair way many times. The greens were brown and not in good shape. I hope it was because of all this covid 19 stuff. I might go back later in the year to see if it has been improved.
At least we got out to play.......I guess.

very good course

course is always in good shape. greens/ tee boxes/ fairways...staff is very friendly. I have played this course a few times. I live over an hour away and it's well worth the drive. fellow golfers seem very friendly. from what I've seen they always let faster players play through. I have been on both ends myself.
