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.

Review by: Tiger Woods This course is amazing. It is the best course that i have ever played. It's in great shape, greens and fairways are kept up. The length of the course is just right. If you can play here, you can play anywhere. If you don't know what i mean by that, play the course and then you will. I almost forgot how wonderful the staff is. The bartenders, proshop personal, and greensmen are all a delight to be around. And if your hungry, they hold an incredible fishfry every friday from 5-9. Each week the special menu changes and each week it gets even better than the last, if that is possible.
