Turtle Run Golf Club in Danville, Ill. is known throughout central Illinois for its beautifully maintained conditions, due in no small part to the hardworking grounds crew. The course offers four different tee lengths from Snapper, the longest at 6,771 yards, to the shortest at 5,260 yards, the Tortoise. In keeping with the theme, the other two tees are called Boxer and Softshell. The varying tees allow players of all skill levels to enjoy a challenging but fair game. The interesting mix of holes will have you using every club in your bag. Creeks and streams meander through Turtle Run Golf Club, coming into play on several holes. Mature trees frame the greens, which already demand accuracy to navigate the strategically placed bunkers. In addition to the golf course, there is a practice facility with a driving range and putting and chipping areas to work on your short game.
