Central Illinois Golf Courses

Central Illinois Golf

Even though downtown Chicago gets all the fame, Illinois' real show-stoppers are the premier golf courses of Central Illinois. Located on flat farmland, the golf courses are perfect for beginner golfers, but pros shouldn't get too confident; the Illinois River provides flowing water features that prove an exciting challenge. Known as "The Land of Lincoln", Central Illinois was once home to Abraham Lincoln, and his house in Springfield can still be visited by golfers today. Lincoln, a golf enthusiast way back when, would have loved the discount tee times at numerous golf courses right in his backyard of Central Illinois.
