This traditional "U.S. Open" style course was built on hilly terrain and is lined with maple, oak, willow, and evergreen trees. The greens are medium-sized, fast and sloping. The fairways are about average width. The most difficult hole on the course is #17, a 401-yard, par 4, with a sharp dogleg left fairway, and an extremely small green that is sloped from back to front. There is a huge flower bed surrounding the green on hole #18. There are sand bunkers spread throughout the course and mounds everywhere. A level lie is a rare occurrence on this course. Bob Lohmann redesigned the course in 1989. Guests must be accompanied by a member in order to play this course.

Greens are the big challenge, Aug 02, 2004
from Winnebago, IL USA
|The greens are the big problem here. They are extremely fast which makes chipping and putting difficult. The fairways are fairly tight, but the course is not weedy like some courses, so lost balls are not a big problem.|
