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.

Stonehenge Golf Club -- Great course/staff/people
Review by: GK STONEHENGE is a "GOLF COURSE" not a 50,000 sq. ft. clubhouse with a golf course on it.Yet the people there treat you like it.From the very start everybody is very friendly and courteous.They want you to come back. The course is always in very good shape. Greens run true.Layout is very good.Challenging Par 3's,4's & 5's & yet some easy ones.Fairways are always in good shape,but sandtraps need "sand" not "grainy sand/gravel". I have never played a course time in time out everybody is very friendly!! Course etiquette is always,always in play here. Everybody is in a good mood when they check-in and this carrys on to the course.This reflects on the staff.Start/turn/end everytime,everybody is nice.Staff or members.Great course.Highly recommended.
