Pace of play was slow due to so many people being out on the last nice day of Fall. Had to wait for a cart since so many people riding single due to COVID but staff was friendly and quick to a get a cart cleaned and sanitized to me as soon as one came in off the 18th. Was a fun course to play for a beginner.

Easy Course

Lots of bare ground just off the fairways. No Trick Shots required here. Pretty short course. Greens were in decent shape considering no one that plays here repairs their ball marks. Not that great of a deal at $25.

Madison

This course layout is very open. There isn’t a bunch of hills or water in every direction which is sometimes a good switch up. My dad who has played all over Central Illinois said that he will definitely be coming back to this course and I say the same. The staff was extremely nice and they all had masks on to comply with COVID-19 safety which is awesome. All around great place to golf!

Historic Gem

Peoria is lucky to have an early Tom Bendelow design as a muni. Although the course is flat and relatively hazard free, it has some great intricacies that anyone with an appreciation for course architecture can appreciate. For example, on #2 there is a bunker shaved into a raised green! Although it is an easier course, there are still plenty of dog legs that allow you to take some risk/reward type shots and a few tee shots where you cannot see fairway bunkers up around the green. The course was in great shape despite having been drenched the last few days. For the condition it is currently, it is one of the best values in Peoria.
