Oak Springs Golf Club is tucked away amid the rolling hills and wooded plains of St. Anne. Though it feels peacefully secluded, it's conveniently situated less than an hour from Chicago. As one of the premiere golf courses in Kankakee County, it has a layout that appeals to players of all skill levels and it's also one of the most affordable rounds in the area. There are some challenging holes but the rough is very forgiving in case hitting it straight isn't one of your strengths. The front nine features fairways lined with mature trees and there are some tough par 3s to contend with. The more player-friendly back nine at Oak Springs Golf Club is wide open and offers some great scoring opportunities. There are subtle but tricky undulations throughout and you'll also run into water occasionally.

I find it very offensive that some of the the staff reall don't nt like Golfnow users.. They act you're cheating them out of money..If they don't like GolfNow, don't honor it. I'll bet they like all the new benches, I won't be golfing there very much in the future, there's many courses in the area

Well maintained course!

Even late in the season, Oak Springs golf course is in great condition. The course is a hidden gem in the Kankakee area. It’s in better shape than the popular courses like Silver Lakes and George Dunn in the South Suburbs. While the layout of many of the wholes are pretty straightforward, there are still some challenging doglegs and water shots. The tee and pin placements can often make this course tougher than it looks.It’s my favorite course South of I-80.

Worst Time Golfing

Frequent golfer at Oak Springs. Love the course. But sometimes pace of play is just miserable. Took us 3 hours to finish 9 holes on a Friday late morning. Sat on each tee box for 10 minutes each hole. Couldn’t believe it. Before our round even started, the front desk lady was quite rude, and this isn’t the first time my crew and I have felt that way. Probably gonna take my money elsewhere now.

The course itself is awesome don’t get me wrong.

Great value

Wonderful country course that is very well maintained. Pro shop is minimal and the kitchen doesn't open until 4pm on weekdays (dogs and brats are available earlier), but the course itself is well worth playing.

Enjoy golf with your xon

This is my get away course to play golf with my son. We can play 27 holes in three hours when it’s the hottest time of the day. It’s a challenging course for this bag of bones and I love watching my boy attack the course!
Stall are some of the nicest petiole you would ever meet.
Condition of the course is fantastic!
Only wish this course was a little closer to Chicago, but the I do not think we could play 27 holes in three Jupiter.

Greens great as always

This course never fails. Last minute deals are usually available. Greens are some of the best in the area. Fairways are always cut. You will enjoy your round here.
