The 9 holes of Beaver Creek Golf Course sprawl across a 60-acre parcel of Boone County abundant in wildlife and the tranquility of rural pastureland. The layout intertwines with the course's titular creek, which comes into play on 5 holes. With just four sand traps, one cozy sand castle, large greens, and five holes checking in at less than 350 yards, the course presents a welcoming venue for beginners to enjoy the game while building fundamentals.

Designed by course architect Dick Nugent, the acclaimed Aldeen Golf Course ushers club-toting clientele into a 7,131-yard grassy valhalla stretching across bucolic fairways and exceptionally maintained greens. Five sets of tees temper the difficulty of this lengthy and relatively challenging course, which requires astute club selection to adjust for subtle elevation changes, sound course management to cope with 62 treacherous sand bunkers, and one philologist to converse with the hillpeople living amid the well-mounded rough. Encroaching water hazards rear their hydraulic heads on a dozen holes including the signature par 3 eighth, where duffers clamber over a replica of the storied Swilcan Bridge of St. Andrews lore to access an island green that would make even the boldest of John Daly impressionists nostalgic for the predictability of putt-putt windmills. Loop the verdant links the old-fashioned, foot-intensive way with today’s first option, or enlist a trustworthy cart to tote a bag and golf mate with today’s second option.

Stretching across Rockford's south side since 1930, the 18-hole Sandy Hollow Golf Course has fielded fairway-threading drives, pin-seeking approaches, and birdie-sealing putts for more than 80 years. As one of five Park District Courses, the 6,228-yard loop presents lush fairways lined with trees, which aim to swat humans' shots as revenge for turning their friends into paper towels. The course also boasts a significant environmental pedigree, having been certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary and taking top prize in the Public Space category of the 2002 City of Gardens Rockford in Bloom awards.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total length of 6,228 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 70 from the back tees * Course slope of 120 from the back tees * Two sets of tees per hole
