Very challenging course, especially the back-9. Many holes really make you think and play the course. Club-house was very quiet and food was not readily on hand. This is a players course for all skill levels. If you 'spray' the ball...have plenty of ammo. Early morning rounds will have a number of Turkeys, Foxes, Deer, Turtles, Pheasants, and a few Skunks and Snakes too.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area

Love this course. Great conditions, fairways were lush and greens rolled fast. No houses anywhere in site. Layout was good. Only thing negative was hole 11 that just seemed out of place and tricked up. A must play course in my opinion.

One of the best courses in northern Ill. Great deal if get the online coupon. Beautifully natural environment. The greens can be brutal but they are fair....if you can adjust to the speed. Worst aspect-not on the way to or from any place. Longer drive than desirable.
