Shepards Crook is a course you need to play, and probably twice so that you are familiar with the hole layout. Conditions were very good and place of play was good even with the number of walkers and people with pull carts.

The course is always in great shape.

The course is maintained very well and they even cleaned out some of the wilder areas which makes it easier to find wayward shots.

Great links style course on the IL/WI border.

This is a challenging course in calm weather. It becomes even more challenging with thick rough and the wind up. It is fun and the staff and patrons are always pleasant.

Fun design

Well kept course that is at a great price point. The course is definitely a bit harder than the slope on the card would suggest. If it’s windy when you play, good luck. Highly recommend the course for its condition and layout. If it was not an hour away I would play it all the time.

Spring Golf

It’s too bad we have had so much rain this spring but the greens they were outstanding as they are always outstanding at shepherds crook golf course that’s the reason we always come back no matter what time of the year it is. Can’t wait till the golf course dries out that way the whole golf course will be outstanding.

Very nice course, links style. We've had a ton of rain lately but the course was still playable if not soggy. I really like the course and the layout is great. We play here often.

Great track

This course is always in great shape even in spring. I am a 11.3 handicapper and pretty much play everywhere and always enjoy a round here. It's a links course so if the winds are blowing just add a few strokes to your round and enjoy. Greens are always challenging so like most courses, stay below the pins or it's going to be a long day. New patio deck is great to relax with a cold one afterwards. Oh and if you like a Brat, must try one here.

Great course

The course was in great November condition. The greens were quick with lots of undulations. Some of the pins were in very challenging placements, but I enjoyed the challenge. Shepherds Crook is one of my favorite courses to play. It’s worth traveling 40 miles to play. I’ll be back often.
