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!

Arlington Lakes Golf Club -- Beware This Little Beast!
Review by: Dogtrack Master This is a tough little short course that plays to a par 68. I used to play it a lot in the summertime with co-workers before work and it is easy to walk. It can lull you to sleep with its short yardage, but beware the bunkers, water, and well-maintained greens. The "Road Hole" #4 is a miserable hole with out bounds on both sides and a tricky green that is well-bunkered. At about 270 yards, I have played about every club in the bag on this hole. I recommend just blasting a driver and hope for the best. A hospital is across the street and you may check yourself into the "looney ward" after playing this hole. The most difficult hole at Arlington Lakes is #9. A Par 5 playing at just 451 yards, players must avoid water hazards on every shot. The approach is over water to a narrow, sloping green protected by four deep-faced bunkers. Hole #15 is a straight away par 4 that is long and has o.b. to the left. Par is a good score. If you don't hit it straight and have a lousy short game, then this course is not for you.
