Lake Calhoun Golf Course -- beautiful course
Review by: lakesider on the course this course has just what every course needs - character!! the greenskeeper & his crew must really love their jobs because it sure does show in the beauty of the course! each & every hole & green are painstakingly maintained to perfection. not being a terrific golfer myself, i found the course challenging - but isn't that the point of a good course?! the clubhouse staff are wonderful, too! boy, can they pour a mean beer! and the food is to die for! i hope y'all come soon to experience the nirvana i did at lake calhoun outside tiny little lafayette, il!

Ravisloe Country Club -- PLus 4
Review by: Anonymous Originally designed in 1901 by James Foulis (from Old Tom's shop in St. Andrews), and revised by Donald Ross in the teens, Ravisloe is a classic of traditional golf architecture. Don't be fooled by its modest length; the trouble is thoughtfully placed, the fairways narrow, and the greens a tough defense. The stretch from 12-17 is awe inspiring, with great natural rhythm--i.e., pars 4-5-4-3-4-4. The bunkers throughout the course are some of the most unorthodox ever devised by Ross. This course is a gem!
