|No matter how you spell it, this course is one of the most difficult but rewarding course you're likely to find in Illinois. No easy shots to speak of and it plays long and mean. Had fun, but out of the foursome, only three pars. I'm sure I'd feel different if I had actually paid for it, but it was a company outing.|
