Tough course

My third time playing this course. I find it very challenging but yet really enjoyable. Pekin should be proud to have such a wonderful golf course.

Odd layout but well kept

The layout is odd, with more than a few holes where you’ll lose a ball with a perfect drive because they don’t give you yardages from the tees and/or you can’t see the landing areas. The greens keeper does a fantastic job, though, with what he’s working with. It’s hard not to let the 4/5 poorly designed holes affect the overall experience, but I still think it’s worth the $20 hot deal. Don’t expect much from the clubhouse. Really Nice putting green.

First day out in 19

Course was in great shape. Range and putting greens were packed full, but people moved through pretty quickly. Definitely a great value at the GolfNow price!

I Love Lick

Best bang for the buck in central Illinois! Freshly aerated greens made putting somewhat tricky, but we love Lick Creek and play it as often as we can!

Not a course for a beginner

Enjoyed playing the course but for a senior it was a tough layout. A lot of hills. They do not have a senior tee as you have to play at 6308 or the ladies at 5301. Several long par 4s over and close to 400 yards made it a tough layout for the over 70 set. Very nice greens but with any public course a lot of people do not repair their ball marks. A stretch of holes on the front were very tight with dog legs and a lot of trees. It was very warm the day we played and water in the course was not placed in obvious locations but close to several different holes. The sand was more like brick sand as opposed to what I am use to playing in the Carolinas. A lot of hills so this is not a walking course for the faint hearted. Very liberal on cart accessing the green areas so people with limited walking ability are covered. I will pay it again and this is a Muni course so the price is reasonable.

Great course

This is a very nice course, fair and challenging. Staff is very attentive, and adds to the pleasure of this facility. I’m an otr driver, and play a lot of courses. This has become one of my favorites. The course was in great condition, and the greens rolled true. If you ever get the chance, check this one out...

Great Course

Everything was wonderful here. Fairways, greens,staff. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Tough course, only my second round of the year. So the course kicked my butt. I shall return, to take revenge.

Outing

Should have known when I pulled up to course lot was full. There was a outing . Just can't figure why courses don't let daily play. The slowest round in history. Really not fair 3.75 hrs for 9 holes. Oh well played the front again to beat crowd. 1.75 hrs. But the course was awesome loved all of it. Hit the ball well but stay below the hole very fast. Hooked up with some good guys.

A Tough course

Great challenging course at a great value. Fairway was in great shape and the greens were extremely fast. I did not realize how tough greens can be at this course when the green were as fast as today. If you don't have your A game, you will lose lots of balls and score will balloon to your worst score of the year. I did not do well but really enjoyed the course.
