Definitely a Golf Experience

Had always wanted to play after watching one of the senior events here a number of years ago. Great blend of woods and water, and two excellent, challenging closing holes.

Amazing Golf Experience

Kemper Lakes is hands-down the best course I've ever played. It goes to show why they were chosen to host the 1989 PGA Championship. The course is in amazing condition. The fairways are smooth and fast and the same can be said for the greens. Very few blemishes in the greens, it is very well taken care of. White sand was added to the greenside bunkers last off season and it plays great and it's fair enough to get out of while still punishing you for hitting them. The rough is cut at an appropriate length where, again, its challenging but still manageable. Each of the par-3's are over 180 yards and are all very well protected by bunkers on 6 and 13, and water on 3 and the signature 17th. The 18th hole is a great finisher, a very sharp doglef left with water all the way down the left side of the hole and another water feature on the right side of the green starting at 100 yards out making the fairway very narrow near the green. It is private however, so unfortunately it can't be shared with everyone. If you do get the opportuny to play it, do not pass on it. You will really enjoy this track.
