Length 6420

Rating 71.0
Type Semi-Private
Crab Orchard Golf Club originally opened in 1959, but in order to keep up with modern courses, it has seen many beneficial changes over the years. Though the design of the layout has fluctuated, Crab Orchard is known among locals for consistently offering superb conditions. The scenic golf course features lush fairways winding through stands of mature oak trees. Water hazards come into play on half of the holes and the small greens have subtle breaks, which can make them difficult to read. The golf course is quite formidable from the championship tees but the forward and middle tees make it approachable for all skill levels. In addition to the course, a popular feature at Crab Orchard is the large driving range which boasts target greens and a practice bunker.

Not bad for the price

I've played this course for years. While it's still in fairly descent shape it's not what it once was. The greens have always been great and the fairways are usually beautiful as well , they seemed to be a little sparse but still pretty good. The staff hasn't ever been the best but you learn to deal with that , pay your money and go play. All in all if your playing the hot deal for $13.00 plus $3.00 booking fee $16.00 is a heck of a deal but I wouldn't pay much more to play it when you can play Hickory Ridge for $25.50 tax title license , Hickory is second to none in southern Illinois. If you haven't played there you owe it to yourself. If your tired of playing flat , str8 holes. Go play Hickory

Really like the layout of this course. The fairways were in really good shape. You could tell that time and effort had been put into this course getting it ready for spring play!

Great fall golf

Course conditions were excellent. However, the greens were just punched and there was a lot of sand so the greens were crazy slow. Unfortunately the greens were not cut in the morning we played so that added to the slow speed. Pace was great and we played in 3 hours and the price was great. Will play again !

Thanks for the positive comments. Just wanted to touch base about the slower greens following the aerification. That process requires quite a lot of sand. The day you played, we had a heavy dew and the sand was sticking to the bed knives/reels rendering a cut almost useless. It is one of the side effects of aerification which is necessary for good putting surfaces. Come back out sometime and try them at their normal speed.
