New ownership sucks

Received two rounds of golf at a golf outing held their that was paid for. Went to use them and was told there not valid because of new ownership. I explained they weren't donated to the golf outing by Weaver Ridge but was paid for. Manager said new ownership won't honor anything pre ownership previous owner got the money for them and last owner gave alot of free passes away. I like the course but if ownership treats customers this way no reason to play there ever again.

Great layout

Have played Weaver in the past and have seen it in much better shape then this round. Tees and fairways have numerous areas where the grass is non existent.
Greens were smooth and fast but plagued by lots of ball marks. Wish golfers would repair them and repair them correctly. Nice to see they are redoing the bunkers. Cart paths are in need of repair in lots of places. Just to bad this course that was once a jewel has not had enough money put back into it to keep it that way. I would still recommend it just for the great Hurdzan/Fry design.

Awesome course, awesome day

I was in town visiting family and treated myself to an early morning round taking advantage of WV's great EB rate. I will be back! Course was in fantastic shape, especially the greens. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed my day on a perfect day to play golf!

Great course

It almost feels like a hidden gem to find a course this nice in central Illinois.
I played a twilight round for around $25. Unbelievable deal for a course this nice.
Clubhouse was really nice and the staff was very friendly.
The course itself was in great shape except for some greens that are speckled with ball marks. Could just be because it is still so early in the season.
This course has everything. Great scenery, elevation changes, forced carries, long holes, short holes, undulating greens.
This course is a must play anytime you find yourself in Peoria.

Excellent back 9

This course has a lot of elevation change on the back nine. A couple of the par 5s are short but you need to be accurate to score on them. For the most part the rest of the holes have plenty of room off the tee. Plenty of memorable holes on this course, especially the par 3s on the back. The only reason I didn't rate 5 stars was due to the course conditions. It had rained that morning and they hadn't fixed the bunkers by the time we played late afternoon. The greens were very bumpy from all the spike marks but the course is usually kept in great shape. Highly recommend

Good course, good shape, overpriced

All 4 times I have played here I left with the same feelings. Solid course, a couple of quirky holes (10 and 18 you run out of room with driver which on these length holes I don't like), medium speed slightly bumpy greens, but fun. Overall a good course. I payed 40 - it's worth that every now and again.

There are some great views on the back 9, but it's also a neighborhood course which detracts from it's visual appeal.

Course is typically green and lush, also not my preference. Fairways giving 0 - 15 yards of roll depending on the wetness of the ground. Greens soft and my 7 irons were backing up a few feet. This is niether a negative or positive, just a preference.

I enjoyed myself and will be back next year probably.

Poor Value for Top Dollar

I do not usually review, but for the fees normally charged I guess I expected more. I heard much about this course and gave it a try. I don't know what people were excited about. Staff was great, but course did not match. Greens spotty in many places. Fairways varied from spongy to rock hard. Traps in poor condition. I used golfnow and a few perks to get the price down, but still a questionable value. Great day and fun round, but medium course charging top dollar. Several local community courses are in better shape for much less per round.

Trapped at WeaverRidge

The course is beautiful with the exception of the bunkers. There are too many bunkers that are not properly maintained. Same issue last year.

If staff can't properly maintain them with essential amounts of sand, why not fill half of them in?

Top 5 public in all of Illinois

Play this course 1-2 a year and always look forward to playing at Weaver. Pro shop staff always have a smile on their face, which is a breath of fresh air. Weaver without a doubt is a top 5 public track in the entire state of Illinois. I know because I've played all of them....all of the top 20, except Annbriar. Layout is just breathtaking and the elevation changes are so dramatic you forget you're in boring Illinois. Only issue is the conditions weren't a 10, maybe a 7 but regardless play this course cause it's just so fantastic.

Best course in central IL - Great layout, elevation changes, fun to play

Really nice course with big elevation changes. Excellent layout with many interesting holes. Only drawback was playing a day after rain. Cart path only because of the rain made for a long, slow round... Not a course conducive to that at all. And its not a course you can walk. Still definitely worth playing. Easily the best course in central Illinois.

This course is beautiful and very well maintained. There are interesting elevations and the overall layout is fantastic. The greens are big and they run true. I was surprised to find this high quality course in this part of IL. It's a gem.

Expected better conditions for premier course reputation

While great conditioning was expected from its reputation and price, actual conditions were disappointing. Bunkers were packed with hard sand at bottoms, teeing areas had rough length grasses and tee markers seldom lined up at proper angles. Overall did not live up to reputation or rack rate price.

Great course!

Rough is thick. But course is in great shape. All in all a great track. Greens were a little slow, but it's still early in the year.
