Wide-open but challenging, undulating layout

This is a great, unique course here in central Illinois. Most fairways are wide and greens are large, but requires strategy to find the right angles. Fairways are rolling with barely any level spots. Water comes into play on probably half the holes. Can be very tough but also fun to play due to variety of holes. Condition was very good - sometimes in mid-summer it can get hot and somewhat dry.

Great Hot Deal

Love being able to play the Den with GolfNow. The hot deals are a great value. The course was little wet, so the greens and fairways were beat up more than you would like. Greens were full of marks and goose poo. That being said, it's a great course and very challenging. If you're not a very good golfer, be sure to bring a few extra sleeves.
