Detailed description of Crestwicke Country Club

Crestwicke Country Club is a Private 18 hole golf course located in Bloomington, Illinois.

The course was designed by Larry and Roger Packard. The first 9 holes opened on June 1, 1969. Watered fairways, big greens, and large bunkers were features far above those found on other area golf courses. The second nine holes opened for play in July, 1974. The second nine was not just added to the original nine. The plan was to build the front nine and intermingle the back nine when funds were available. The original 18 hole plan called for the nines to be reversed from how they are now played.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7,061 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,114 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 6, a par-5 that plays to 581yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 13, a par-3 that plays to 169 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 3, a 393 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 13, the 169 yard par-3.

The club secured a financial loan from Bloomington Federal in 1972 in the amount of $900,000 to purchase the 147 acres of land the club sits on from Brookside Farms. Shortly after this in December of 1974, Crestwicke faced foreclosure action. By February of 1975, Bloomington Federal purchased the club for a little over $1,000,000. Crestwicke enjoyed prosperity for several years after that. In 1992, Crestwicke was sold to a Japanese investor and managed by a group from Texas led by D.A. Weibring. They soon realized the difficulty in managing a private club from offsite and the current owners, Hurley Enterprises, purchased the club in 1996. The new owners soon put in over a million dollars in capital improvements.

I am a member of the course. The last review I wrote was during the renovation of the course. The course had come out in fantastic shape, the bunkers are difficult and smaller with the edges of the bunkers playing difficult. There is little or no inconsistent grass in the fairways or greens. The renovation planted more drought resistent grasses and they have held up very well. The greens are fast to really fast and have a lot of break on every green. The course holds up to the best of golfers and is challenging to most golfers

Would travel: 30-60 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

The course has undergone extensive renovation in 2012. The renovations have not taken completly, but the major work was to improve the turf throughout the course and change two greens. The new turn should allow the greens to be quicker and more drought resistent. I am a member at the course and the membership is looking forward to the vast improvement. A number of tournments and qualifiers are scheduled for the Summer of 2013.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Better than average course for the area
