This course offers a challenge to all your abilities and will require the use of all the clubs in your bag. The fairways are wide and the greens are of medium size. Water and sand bunkers have been incorporated into the course design. One of the more difficult holes is #16, a 442-yard, par 4, which requires a tee shot over water to a dogleg right fairway, then an approach to a well-bunkered green. Water must also be carried on the approach shot on hole #1, a 356-yard, par 4, and off the tee on hole #7, a 135-yard, par 3.

Byron Hills, What day is it?, Apr 07, 2004
|reviewer: John Bailey
from Bettendorf, IA
|Depending on the day, Byron Hills can either offer a pleasant diversion for a summer day, or the golf equivalent of World War III. The character of the course changes dramatically depending on Pin and Tee placements. Hole #5 is a perfect example of this phenomenon. If the pin is placed in the middle to back of the green, it is very approachable and in some locations, the ball will collect near the hole. If the pin is placed in the front, it is nearly impossible to putt and keep the ball on the green if you are above the hole. When the summer heat hits, the greens become very firm, lightening fast and the nearly impossible becomes the absolutely impossible. The staff is friendly and courteous. The course is kept in excellent condition and the carts are mint. To sum up, the course provides an excellent test of shot making and course management, with plenty of opportunity to play the "Risk/Reward" game thrown in as a bonus. I enjoy Byron Hills very much and you probably will also.|
