Ok,  Does anyone have any hidden gems that they love to play in Illinois area that fly under the radar?  Mine is Lick Creek in Pekin.  If you are going to be in the area it is worth playing.


Anymore in the area...

If you're looking to get away for the weekend you can go to Eagle Ridge Inn & Resort near Galena, I'll. They have 4 great courses with The General being my favorite of the 4.

As Justin mentioned, TPC Deere Run. Love it!



I live just north of Bloomington and we love to play the Elks in Pontiac.  The Elks has the best greens in the Bloomington area and you can play there anytime.  For some reason they are never crowded and always very easy to get on the course.  Hole number one is the toughest starting hole around. 

Also, ISU Wiebering course.  ISU is dumping a bunch of money into the course to spruce it up.  The greens there are fabulous and they are constructing a new learning center range area.  It is the best course in the Bloomington area.

I am from the Lemont area and there are some great courses nearby.  Obvious is Cog Hill and Ruffled Feathers.  Old Oak and Big Run are also great.  Down in Channahon, Heritage Bluff is a great track.
