Beautiful day, beautiful golf course.

Picture perfect day for golf which is a blessing in October for Illinois.

Lucked out on tee time that allowed me to play at my own pace. Seemed to get very crowded shortly after but who could blame anyone on a day like this. ..

Course was in very good condition.
What I love about this course is that you are in the middle of a natural setting. No houses, cars, noise, nothing... one of the prettiest course you'll find.

Great value

Great course for the money. Staff very friendly. Good pace of play for a Sat morning.Only issue , bathrooms have to be one of the worst condition I ever have been in. I would rather have used a porta potty.
But I would definitely play again and refer it to a friend.

About as backed up as I have ever seen it.

Love the course but when you are backed up 3 to tee???? Just takes all the fun out of playing golf. What's the point of setting up a tee time?

Even at 90 degrees it was still so great!!!

Loved it this time and every time before.
I have to admit it was a bit too warm but can’t keep the golfers from playing excellent courses and this is definitely one of them.
