Featured Golf Course Review:
Leroy Country Club -- Decent 9 hole course.
Review by: Anonymous This is not a bad little 9 hole track, but certainly not one of the best in the area. The course can play extremely slow due to crowding, and member outings and leagues. The fairways and greens are nice, however the greens are quite sloped and fast. Leaving the ball below the hole on approach is critical to scoring on this golf course. The couse is not long, and only requires driver on about 3-4 of the holes. A creek comes into play on a few holes, but no large water hazards are really in play unless you hit a very bad shot. The clubhouse offers full beverage and grill service, and there is a swimming pool for use by members only. You will certainly play better courses in the area, but can pay more an play worse courses too.

Cardinal Creek Golf Club -- Cardinal Creek-Scott AFB, IL
Review by: F.W. Lydic, CAPT (USNR-Ret.) A course perhaps more friendly for the long-ball hitter with more than enough water and some deviously placed sand. Access to the course requires a military affiliation or a friend who can host your play but, well worth the trip. Given its location (on base), play is seldom hampered by a crowded course which also makes it a most hospitable course for the slower player, the short ball hitter or those just learning the game. The placement of water (ponds and streams) makes for an interesting attack plan and invites disaster for the reckless. Improved traps, general landscaping and more attention to tee boxes and greens over the past two seasons has made the course much more enjoyable. The first six holes are a low rolling layout with a lot of trees in play along the fairways. The rest of the course is basically flat with several holes playing parallel to the runway and an occasional aircraft take-off or landing adding to the view. Course amenities are well maintained. Walk, pull a cart or ride in a relatively new electric cart. The golf carts are in great shape and an adjacent driving range is a plus for tuning up before hitting off of the first tee. The clubhouse has a small grill for lunch with a comfortable seating area for a beer after the game. The pro shop is equipped to handle most needs.
