A course with great lake view
If you're looking for a golf course with great lake view in central Illinois, this is the course! Unlike Lincoln Greens golf course at Springfield, Lakeshore gives a great full view of large lake on many holes. I think the golf architect of Lakeshore carved the rolling terrains along the lake very well. There are many courses near huge lake but have limited view of lake; this one doesn't.
The only drawback is the quality of fairway and slow greens with shallow bunkers. Otherwise, the beautiful tree lines and great view of lake can match the TPC Deere Run. I think this course is a hidden gem.
The speed of play was excellent. I started at 10:52am and could finish at 3:00pm on busy Saturday. The staff was very friendly and allowed me to start at earlier T-time than my original T-time when a group cancelled T-time at the last minute.
