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.

The Den at Fox Creek is a nice course for pretty much every level of player. Wide fairways help in your decisions to "rip it" on most holes. Greens are large and extremely fast and can cause lots of 3 putts if not gifted with soft hands. Course conditions are always very good and the layout and holes have lots of variety, never giving the same look twice. Par 3's are diverse and interesting, with 2 of the 4 requiring spot on ball striking. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Driving range and putting greens make for nice warmup and preparation before starting your round.

Very nice golf course, I will play this golf course again. Many high school kids were practicing when I went play there, but the staff were there at about 4:00 PM fixing the divots, and it shows that the golf course fairways and greens are well maintained. The pro shop staff were nice and friendly as well explaining what was going on that day.

There are a few water hazards, so bring extra balls...

This is one of my favorite courses in Bloomington-Normal to play. I was able to play the same day as their hardest pin tournament, and it was one of my favorite rounds of golf so far. We paid $18 for green fees and a cart, the course was playing fantastic. When we got to the first green we got to truly see how insane the pin locations where, but it made it that much better. By far, it is a fantastic value for your dollar, and the course is very well maintained!

Perfect weather for golfing. Got a great price for the day. Course was not in it's usual great condition. Sand traps were full of water, and the ones that weren't have far too much sand in them. You need a tractor to dig yourself out of those pits. Greens had been aerated and this made for lots of puts bouncing and getting off line when putting. The greens are normally very fast and smooth, but not this day. The course is very fun to play and challenges you to hit your shots in the right places, or pay a price. Even though this day was not the best conditions I've played on this course, I still recommend playing here, as most courses still don't offer the variety and conditions that are normally found here.

Have played in the past, but for some reason none of the tee boxes were labeled. carts have gps which is great, sand is well kept, and everywhere, greens were dry and fast. made for a difficult round that should have played much easier. Great course for the price I paid.

The course is in great shape. Lots of undulation both on the greens and fairway. Not a flat spot on the course. Greens are very fast compared to most courses in the area. More important to control your ball than hit it long.

We had a nice time at The Den. Only complaint that I have is that the old man behind the counter made as feel like cheapskates for using Golfnow. Hey, if you don't like people to use the deals, then don't put them on Golfnow. There was hardly anyone on the course, yet he would not allow my buddy and I to play as a 2some. He insisted that we had to be paired with the other 2some that bought the other spots on the tee time. Now, I understand that is a possibility for this deal, but when the course is emply why not just accomodate. With that said, the guys were great and we had fun.
