Crane Creek Golf Course

  24 Reviews

So improved since playing 6 weeks ago. Email that enticed my wife and I to go mentioned Mr. Robbins returning to manage the course. We could see his hand print immediately. Nicely mowed, sand traps manicured. It appears that ownership is committed to restoring this former gem. Thanks Mr. Hirsch. Glad that Rod and crew are back. We look forward to coming back next year. It will be worth it if the effort so far gets carried over to next season. "Build it and they will come".

Very much worth the drive from any Central IL location. If you are driving down from Chicago to play Weaver Ridge, Coyote Creek, or The Den you should put this lost gem on your playlist while in the area. A few places a bit rough but the layout and challenge is worth this minor drawback. Unique and excellent hole designs unlike what is typically seen in this part of the USA. My hot dog was warm and beer was cold. Don't be shy.........give Crane Creek a try!

Tees and fairways are crabgrass. Many fringes just burnt up. Rough was not mowed in who knows how long. Appears that the only money invested is put in the greens, and they are average. Have played here since it opened-always looked forward to playing the challenging track. Sad to see such a neat place having gone so far downhill. The layout is phenomenal. Going to take a lot of money to get this place where it belongs. Just a shame.

Long fairways, rolling hills, very challenging from the Blue and White tees. Somewhat easier from the red and yellow tees. Some great views from the course hills of the surrounding countryside. Large greens to shoot for. Some very thick rough around some fairways so bring extra golf balls.
