I would recommend this golf course and the Iron Grille restaurant highly. Booking the tee time was effortless and a great savings. The course exceeded my expectations and the scenery was breathtaking with the autumn colors. We had a light lunch before teeing off at the on-site restaurant which offered high quality food, beverages and service. Very highly recommended!!

Great price, even at full price, had some rain issues lately but is usually the best conditioned course around. Better greens and fairways than most in the Fox Valley and it's really pretty. People play golf in Iola, apparently, so the pace is fast and there's no drunks out on the course screwing up everything. We'll stocked pro shop and friendly, courteous staff.

What a wonderful time I had with my 3 sons playing this top notch course! Each hole seemed like it was cut out of the woods. Beverage cart girl was super accomadating. We saw deer, turkey, and geese while playing. Would highly recommend this gem to anyone. Thank you!
