Little overpriced but a very nice open course that has some challenging holes. Definitely one of the best Springfield area courses.

Nice Open course

The Rail is a nicely laid out course. It's challenging, yet wide open so you can make mistakes and still recover. It's fun to play on a course that holds an LPGA event each year for a very reasonable price. (The State Farm Clasic) Once you play it, you'll want to play it again.
