Course Reviews


It's still a little early in the season, so I should probably cut them a little slack. The condition of the course is poor. The greens are full of imperfections, and do not roll - the bounce. Uneven mowing on greens and bare spots are also an annoyance. The rough is very long in some areas, some spots probably due to recent rainfall - others appear to simply be neglected. The layout is somewhat interesting for Bloomington, in that it's not flat and there are lots of trees. The gentleman in the pro shop was very friendly and helpful.

This is by far the cheapest course to play in Bloomington/Normal. However, it is still a fantastic course. Yes. It is very short. However, many of the holes play longer than their actual distance (for example, hole 5). This course does not force you to get your driver out more than 4 or 5 times in the round, but it plays very tight. Mistakes left or right make the course extremely difficult. This is a very fun course to play and I would recommend it to anybody. It is not the most difficult but will challenge you in ways other than length.

great course short but very tight

The front nine can be very challenging, especially for those that have trouble keeping the ball in or near fairways.

The back nine has too many short par fours, but still has two very nice holes, numbers 13 (a par 5) and the finishing hole.
