Great layout

Very unique layout in comparison to most courses in Central Illinois. Greens were in good shape but the fairways were pretty bare in some places. Definitely worth a visit.

The course has a great layout

The tees have almost no grass.
The fairways has very little grass
Some of the greens have been cut, some were very high
The course is very interesting, I hope they get it back in playable condition.

Average

Greens were OK but fairways and tees were quite rough and likely suffering from fungus. TONS of core aerating and overseeding is needed. Do not plan to play there again unless I see lots of positive reviews indicating improvement. This is disappointing, because I used to play there several times a year.

Nice layout awful shape.

The tee boxes are all sand. Greens have bad (skunk?) damage. Just not in good shape right now.

Wow what a disappointment!!

Very unfortunate that a course with such promise has been ruined. No grass on tees or fairways. Greens were average at best. Don't waste your time or money on this goat path!

Needs a bit of love.

The greens were in great shape. With the lack of rain and intense heat the fairways need some water. Definitely needs some work on the bunkers and tee boxes, but this course layout is amazing. If we get some rain it will be back to one of the best around. Hope that happens soon cause the course is amazing when in good shape.

Great course for the price

This course is wide open for players who like the open air and does not destroy you if you don't hit perfectly straight. No trees on the fairways, but there is water to lose your ball into. Greens are large in size and are well groomed for a public course. Use a golf website to set a tee time and play here at great prices!

Great course design

Well designed course. Plenty of terrain, water, and sand. Course in good condition given time of year. Pace was OK, but not great.

Weekend pace of play

This is a nice course which is why it is busy; especially on weekends or holidays. Why is it anyone with 3 clubs in a bag think they should drink and play golf. One twosome in front had a guy hit 6 balls off a tee until he was happy with the result. It was wet from rain so it was cart paty only which slowed it down further. By the 14th I had enough and as I made my way back to the parking lot I passed 6 or 7 foursomes all backed up on the last 4 holes.
