Course Reviews


I love this course. The price and hole #4 bring me back every time. Just go into it knowing that there will be some problems with maintenance and you will not be disappointed. A really fun nine.

what more can you get with 15 dollars. nine holes, cart, and byob. although i went last fall and 2 of the holes didnt even have a green. i could see what looked like it used to be a green but, no flag, no hole, no green. also the grasshopper or whatever those bugs are, are all over the place, bring a face mask while driving the cart.

It's an old course and it shows at time. Tell where you can go pay low price for 9 holes and a cart where you can bring your own beer and still have some great fun. The course is a tough one. It is very deceiptive. It's great for beginning with not alot of money and it is good for the experienced that need to sharpin thier game up.

A must play golf course. Don't let this place fool you.
How many places do you play where you are totally surrounded by trees on all sides. I'm talking 360 degrees. And there are 4 or 5 wonderfully designed holes right out of the roaring twenties. Sure, conditions are not what you might expect, but tees and green surfaces are well cared for and the price is rock bottom low. Great course for seniors, ladies, or kids.
So if you're looking for an unassuming golf experience with a taste of the past, Midland Hills will always welcome you back.

Sounds like someone had a bad time. This course is not for the wannabe pro that thinks all things should be like glass. Yes the course could you some work but with being built in 1929 and not charging a arm or leg to play it is a great course to have fun and work on putting and swings. I have played this course to many times to count and i have taken some wanna be pro's to it also .
This course with its woods and small openings will put some pro's to shame. It might look easy but after your 2nd ball into the woods tell me how it comes out at the end. You might be keeping score from how many balls you have in your bag instead of strokes. The staff is very kind and the club house is realy just a meeting spot. But at least i am not paying over 60+ to play 18 with a cart.

This course is a terrible waste of time. The fairways are a nice combo of dirt and weeds. About a third of every green is dead with big dirt patches. The layout isn't even all that great. Don't waste your time or money.

The other reviewers are mostly correct. The course was opened in 1923 and hasn't been watered since, but what it lacks in beauty it makes up for in likability. The staff is very friendly, which may be due to the closeness of Makanda known to many as one of the friendliest places in Southern Illinois. True, the pro shop is virtually nonexistent, but I tend to do my ‘golf shopping’ before I get to the course. There are recycling bins located at every tee box for depositing of cans and bottles. The course is challenging with some tight fairways and its hilly terrain. I haven’t seen the place crowded yet so I believe it is a good place for a beginner to get some swings in without feeling rushed.

I think this may be the best value for the money in Southern Illinois. Grab some beer on the way, and a golfing buddy, and go have fun while playing on a piece of history.

A Sleeper

Clubhouse / pro shop needs more variety and merchandise; staff is very courteous; don't let the yardage fool you - this course is a very good challenge, even for low handicap players; fairways are dry and firm, but playable, greens are small, difficult, fast, and in good condition; very scenic area; course is definitely worth playing.

MIDLAND HILLS

THIS IS THE OLDEST COURSE IN SOUTHERN IL, BUT IT SHOWS. IT IS NOT WATERED SO THE FAIRWAYS ARE ALMOST ALL DIRT. IT IS HARD TO WALK CAUSE IT IS HILLY. THEY ARE NICE PEOPLE THERE AND IT WOULD BE A NICE COURSE IF THEY WOULD GET AN IRRIGATION SYSTEM.
