Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Illinois
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.
Very good experience. Best course in town
Great Palmer design, great way to honor Mr Palmer!
one of the top public courses in central illinois.
Love this course
Love The Den! Staff is always friendly, course is always in great shape and its a playable but challenging course. They usually have some Hot Deals on GolfNow. A must play course
Beautifully designed course
This course is beautifully designed and very well maintained. Just a joy to play.
hot day but good golf
with weather conditions we have had this summer we didn"t know what to expect. course was in great shape with very well kept fairways, bunkers and greens! greens very hard to read and extremely challenging.
Great layout. Course in good condition. Bunkers could use some attention as I was in them quite often, fun course that needs to be played. Will be back.
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.
Break from The Youth Classic
We booked this on GolfNow as we were in Bloomington for The Youth Classic. Everything was great. This is definitely a shot makers course. Challenging but fun.
Awesome staff, great course, made for an enjoyable day
Cloudy and cool
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.
Great course in central illinois
Always a pleasure to play at the Den. The course is very well maintained and offer so very good challenge to all level of players.
Challenging golf course
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!
Golfing at the Den
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.
Great challenging. Course
This course is her challenging. Both times we played the course the pace was excellent. The carts have GOs and pace time indicators.
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.
Great course with many challenges fair course if you hit the ball well. Several hard holes requiring accurate shots, but will reward you for keeping it play.
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.
