Walkable hilly course with Lake Decatur view on a few holes

The course layout is very interesting with lots of lakes, creeks, gentle hills, and tall trees. The fairway is covered with Zoysia grass, which is unusual in central Illinois. All par 5s except Hole 18 are tough with handicap 1,2,3. Par 4 holes with water (6, 11, 14) are very fun to play! Hole 9 is very scenic from the middle of fairway and it reminded me Mauna Kea golf course in Hawaii. However, you need to be careful at the tee box because Hole 9 is right next to a road although it is hidden by tall trees.

Here are a few disappointments that led me to give one less star in rating:

1. Only Hole 9 and 10 have lake view. It would have been a great course if it was built along the large lake entirely. Tennis court (is it under repair or closed?) looked ugly.
2. Hole 4 was noisy because of nearby national guard facility. A helicopter was constantly flying.
3. Driving ranges are below average.

Overall, this course is definitely worth playing.
