Roland Barkau Memorial Golf Course offers golfers of all skill levels swing-testing challenges in the form of 18 championship-style holes. The par 71 course dons 6,513 yards of zoysia fairways, fescue roughs, bent-grass greens, and cart-powered course traversing. As different as day- and night-sun tanning, the first nine holes adventurously take golfers through tiger-free woods while the back nine contest clubs with links-style layouts. Each hole offers four tee options, ideal for varying skill levels or four-armed mutant-phenoms.
Sculpted into the rolling hills of western Illinois, Clinton Hill Golf Course?s undulating fairways flow into large, challenging greens across two distinct, nine-hole layouts. Mature arbors pepper the landscape, threatening the autonomy of airborne balls while providing scenic, shady plots in which golfers can pause to gawk at the layout?s lush greenery and herbivorous golf carts grazing on native grasses. A longer layout and a higher concentration of bunkers supply the bulk of the difficulty on the front nine, and water hazards await at seven holes on the course?s back nine, placing a high demand on confident swings and deft club selection. Those looking for new gear can peruse Clinton Hill?s pro shop, which peddles golfletic apparel and accessories from the game?s top brands. After a round of aggressive pin-hunting, players can retreat to Clinton Hill Bar and Grill, where guests can enjoy live sporting events on one of several TVs or revive sleepy golf bags with an icy beverage.
Ste. Genevieve Golf Club makes good on its promise as a golf course accessible for all skill levels, and then some. Four sets of tees is something of an unwritten standard for most golf courses, though some more generous ones furnish five. Ste. Genevieve, meanwhile, has six. Beyond the Blue, White, Yellow, and Red tees lay a Level 1 and Level 2 set, ideal for youngsters just learning the game, those with slower swing speeds, and those desperate for a hole-in-one that will finally impress their fathers. These tee options make the course as short as 2,256 yards or as long as 6,396, though challenges lurk around every dogleg regardless of length. A stream cuts across several fairways on the front nine, and tree lines run along the fairways throughout.

Opened in 1960, Union Hills Golf Course's 18-hole layout presents a tale of two nines. On the front nine, golfers can swing freely?and find their rhythm?on a mostly open layout, easing their way into the round. The tone shifts on the back nine, where fairways tunnel through dense groves of trees that have grown tall in their half-century of maturation. Adding to the difficulty, water hazards come into play on four holes throughout the round.

Designed by golf-course architect Robert M. Lohmann, Eagle Valley Golf Course stretches 6,692 yards through rolling terrain and rising crags of verdant knolls, creating a diverse landscape of testy tee-to-green holes. Duffer duos can challenge one another or pair up to face the course's ball-swallowing bunkers, mature trees, and hungry squirrels. An included golf cart accommodates golfers as they traverse through lush green lands on the hunt for a treasure chest of errant golf balls in the bottom of the course's four bodies of water. Golfers can begin their day perfecting their pendulum swings on the property's driving range. With two buckets of balls, every club in the bag of trick sticks can see use, from the pitching wedge to the mannequin leg.
