Newer Front/Historic Back nine
Franklin County is a very well maintained track just north of Marion off I-57 in West Frankfort. An absolute must play if you're visiting or driving through that area. I'm a huge fan of Langford/Moreau golf course design and the back nine of this course built in 1922 is a architectural gem of golf....L&M disciples should seek this place out they won't be disappointed. Solid bones and well thought out golf holes. The front nine is okay....a decent nine but pales in comparison. So the routing is correct you have something to really look forward to making the turn.....or perhaps if you don't have the time slip on that back nine. Play it!!
Nice playable interesting course
Is a combination of early design and recent 9 addition it is fun to play the front line where they have placed sand and grass bunkers in strategic spots using dog legs to complicate some shots.
When you get to the back 9, you get to play the old course which clearly follows the lay of the land. There are lots of ponds and small lakes on the course but they seldom come into play.
It doesn't matter if you get on from a long iron approach or a tricky wedge shot, you have some neu interesting greens to deal with.
I look forward to playing here again.
Well kept course
Very well kept golf course with nice tee boxes ,excellent greens. and friendly staff. Some fairways seems a little burnt because of excessive spring rainstorms, but will become better as the Sumer goes on. I will play there once more before heading back hole. Highly recommended.
Franklin County Country Club is Southern Illinois finest golf course. Established in 1921, this 6,600 yard layout provides a test of golf for players of all skill levels. Rolling greens and beautiful fairways make this a "must play" course in Southern Illinois.
Course is in great shape
Course has improved greatly over the last few years. One of the nicest courses in Southern Illinois!
The course was in excellent shape , although due to the rain , it was cart paths only . But this was not a problem .
