I'm a 71 year old with no special talent for golf , but today was gold. I haven't broken 80 in over 2 years but that day I shot a 70 . No clue who was hitting the shots for me but certainly it could not have been me. The course was soft & everything hit near the flags stopped just like they should have. Putts went in when usually they do not and all the normal pains seemed to go away. Happy Great Gram-Pa

Kellogg is an enjoyable course insofar as layout and course condition. My only complaint (aside from all the on-course garbage cans overflowing with trash) is the number of twosomes allowed on the course on Sunday, each of whom expected to play through foursomes. Twosomes on Sunday should either find friends, pair up with another twosome at the course, or expect to wait on foursomes.

I must give credit where credit is due... the Peoria Park District has heard the numerous complaints and has greatly improved the way Kellogg Golf Course is being managed.

Previous issues with slow play have been worked on and the pace of play over the past few months has been average to good.

This is fantastic news for the Peoria golf community. Kellogg is by far the crown jewel of the Peoria Park District's golf course lineup and it truly is an enjoyable layout. The course is almost always in very good shape and they're very intelligent about when to not allow carts out (several holes do not have cart paths and are susceptible to cart damage in soggy conditions) and when to close the course for the day entirely.

The course itself is moderately challenging but not overly daunting. There are holes that offer decisions/challenges to golfers of any skill level (the par 5 8th hole is a great example). Greens are typically a little slow but not unfair. If you arrive early and take time to roll a few putts on the practice green it is usually a fair representation of the actual speed for the day.

The snack shop and clubhouse facilities are adequate for a public course but unspectacular. Kellogg's putting green is nice and well kept. The Park District's Golf Learning Center across the street is a great resource for those looking to hit a bucket of golf balls or work on their short game prior to their round.

Overall, I recommend Kellogg to anyone looking for an enjoyable, fairly priced round in the Peoria area.

Ok course. There are a couple of quirky par 5s that require less than driver off the tee. The greens would be better if people would learn to fix their ball marks.<br/> there are better courses in the area for a comparable price.

Everyone knows the Peoria Park District is inept (R.I.P. Donovan Golf Course) but the way Kellogg is run is comically poor.

This was the the 2nd (and final) time we have attempted to play this course and had to stop before getting 18 holes in due to the pace of play. 4 hours in and we were only on hole 14. They actually have a Marshall... He just does not care, apparently.

At $35-40 a round, this course is a terrible value when compared to other courses in the area that are similarly priced (Weaver is $49 after 3, Metamora Fields, Coyote Creek, etc.). The value is diminished even further once you factor in that the round will inevitably take you 6 hours.

It's really a shame... This should be a nice public course in Peoria. Sadly, you're much better off playing the other courses I mentioned or driving across the river and playing Quail Meadows (East Peoria) or one of the 3 public courses in Pekin.
