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.

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.

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.

Great course giving a player all the challenges of hitting (slopes, hills up/down, water hazards), putting challenges, tee variations. Planning was very good. My partner states a "PGA course" and well worth a pro tour course.

I've only played this course a few times but it has been very well maintained each time I've been there. The layout is setup very well. There is a lot of challenge as the fairways are tight and in many cases surrounded by woods or bordered by water. The staff is always friendly. At full price it's a bit expensive but well worth the money. My group and I look forward to playing it a few times each season.

Beautiful course in excellent shape for early spring in Central Illinois. Weather was poor (cold and windy), but we still had fun. Greens are faster than other courses, but ran true and were in great shape! I will gladly play this course again and recommend it to others!

The course was in very good condition for this time of year. Not many people were playing. Played the senior tees and still tough. The staff could use some training. While not impolite, they are abrupt. The were not that busy so that is not an excuse. Kind of get the feeling that people who use GolfNow are not held in high esteem.

The weather was fantastic and the facility was clean and orderly. Employees are friendly and professional. They offer a breakfast menu that was smelling fantastic and they offer a phone number on hole eight to order any food items to be ready at the turn. The course was challenging and can be a ball eater if not careful. Holes are marked well.

The course was in great shape. It is a long compared to many other places I play. Greens are fast and the rough was deep. Not a course for a below average golfer like me but is very mice.

This course was a good time,great pace of play and would recommend to all,however I didn't like the fact that I booked as a twosome and then was made aware when I arrived that two more would be joining us,when I asked about playing at a later time during a gap in play I was told no way we are to busy..Ok no big deal,but they were not to busy..The lady behind the counter was very rude and on the turn when we came in to get a hotdog and something to drink it was like we were a burden to be helped and I heard other people complaining about the lack of work ethic from the lady behind the counter

Overall this course was a good challenge for a weekend golfer like myself. Tight fairways and mature trees called for one to put thought into his game. The only downside was the condition of the greens. Poor etiquette created for some rough greens(unrepaired divots)
