Northwest IL courses

Postby sportsdude25 » Sun Aug 26, 2007 7:11 pm

Anyone in the nw corner of Illinois has a fine array of choice courses to play. Living approx. 2 hrs. west of the windy city, this area has some fine (and challenging) courses. There is a long, tough 18 hole course in Sterling,IL that will test even experienced players skills. Freeport,IL offers a fine 18 hole course in Krape Park. There are 9 hole courses in Mt. Carroll and Savanna, IL in Carroll Co., as well as courses in Fulton, Morrison and Rock Falls, IL. So, next time you are in the area bring your discs and check them out. Loads of fun!!!!!

Sorry, the only courses in IL that I've played are in Peoria and the Quad Cities.

Hey Furthur,
If ya ever get up this way give me a holler and I'll turn ya on to a few of these courses. They are about an hour northeast of the Quad Cities.

I live in IL, Joliet to be specific. I can't say I have ever been west to play any courses. This is because I am limited because of school and well because I can't drive (I get my license next Thur!).

If you have the chance to take a drive to Mokena there is a really nice course there. Getting there sucks but it is worth it.

If you're looking for a drive, go to the QC and play West Lake. 24 holes of the best thought out golf I've ever played. Plenty of birdies, plenty of par 5's make this one of the funnest courses you'll ever play. Mature tree holes, open crushers, technical woods, elevation, and lots of water make this a course with nearly every type of shot.

Trust me. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

I've played six of the seven nw IL courses in my area this summer and hope to get to #7 this next week. I'd have to say Sinnissippi in Sterling is the toughest as they continue to change basket locations making this a VERY challenging course. Krape Park's course in Freeport is always a good play and a close second to Sterling for difficulty. The rest are almost short practice courses, which is good for me, as I need lots of practice. 8)
