Best value in the Champaign Urbana area

Course was in nice shape for the lack of rain we have a had in the Midwest this summer. The greens rolled true they have some very big slopes so I did appreciate they were rolling at a nice speed and not lightning fast. The Orange and Blue courses have been around for years so the trees have grown up since the last time I played probably 20 years ago.. The layout is fun and challenging and fair. Several different tees I would suggest picking the right ones for your skill level because the orange course is over 6600 yards from the blue tees. Great practice facilities and awesome and the food at the snack bar is in a class by itself cooked fresh for you.

Good course, terrible play pace

They use to have marshals and starters in the old days. Now folks play at their own leisurely pace. Five hours to play 18 holes is outrageous. At least the course is good conditions and the staff is very friendly. Weekdays are less crowded and players more educated.

Making the most of a flat terrain

Great work making a flat terrain challenging. The green complexes are challenging and demand good approach shots.
Fairways are impressive for this early n the year (May), super tight, 1/4 inch of turf. If these get a little tighter and an 1/8 - 1/4 inch is added, they'll be on par with TPC Sawgrass at tournament time.

Greens and fairways were hard and fast and most holes allowed 4 a bump and run. A very well hit approach would hold.

Excellent spring golf destination

For people willing to drive a little south both the blue and orange were great places for spring golf. The price was outstanding. Both courses would be great for walking. Orange course has a better lay-out and is harder but both courses are great to get your year started. Greens were in good shape. Nice practice facilities and staff was excellent. If weather is right will head back in the future. Drove 4 hours pretty much straight south it was well worth it.

Very nice course

Slow slow slow. They need to keep pace of play up. There were times we waited over 20 minutes to tee off, then another 10 or 15 to hit our second shot.

First time in a long time.

This was the first time I’ve played the golf course in over 35 years. I was pleasantly surprised to see the bent grass fairways they had put in. The course was in as good of condition as any I’ve played this year. I’ll definitely make the trip back to play it again!

Arrived late as time was messed up and the staff was very accommodating and got us right on the course. On the course the only knock on that was lack of water. There is one drinking fountain on the entire court. Could have been more beverage cards. Otherwise great day great course

Orange course

Challenging course. The superintendent must of had a bad night. This pins were very challenging. Very well maintained, but pace of play from other golfers not letting you play through was horrible.

Long and flat w/raised greens. Nothing to write home about and got a bad vibe about the place. Not very friendly.
