Featured Golf Course Review:
Tam Golf Course -- Nice little course
Review by: RT Before the village of Niles took over the course (I believe in the late 60's) this was once Tam O' Shanter Country Club of PGA fame. Unfortunatly the village only bought one part of the parcel of land which contained the original clubhouse and a few of the holes (the majority of the holes were located south of Howard Street now an industrial area). The course is kept in very nice shape and has a couple of the old greens still remaining. The best hole (and one of the originals) is the par 3 sixth. A branch of the river winds up the left side of the green while a large deep sand trap guards the right. The only glaring downside to this course is that every fairway but one, parrellels the other. You keep going back and forth.

Carmi Country Club -- hometown track
Review by: E J Balding Hailing from the fair city of Carmi, this is the "Best Around" for those who choose to stay close to home. Of moderate length, CCC will challenge even the most skilled player a few times throughout their 18 hole adventure. Though only a 9-hole course, the variety of tees will give a different view of the course the second time around. Very well manicured greens and fairways not to mention a staff to keep your thirst more than quenched, I'll give it a solid 4-out-of-5 stars. Here's to you guys...Dave,Herb,Proctor...Keep up the good work. ejb
