Blackhawk Trace Golf Club
Blackhawk Trace Golf Club's 27-hole layout can accommodate players of almost any handicap—nearly every hole has four separate tee boxes. But it's also challenged some of the world's best golfers as the host course of three NGA Hooters Tours events and qualifiers for the LaSalle Bank Open, a Nationwide Tour Event. Anyone who plays the course from the tips will get a taste of true Tour golf without having to lick the fairways at Augusta National.
The complex is divided into three nines called the Island, Woodland, and Highland Courses. At the second tee box of the Island Golf Course, golfers will stare down a 611-yard par-five that ends in an elevated green. It makes the mammoth hole even longer than its billing in the scorecard. But the layout doesn't just test a golfer's ability to grip-and-rip: the course's signature attraction might be its 155-yard par three with a true island green, which will challenge golfers' confidence with the shorter sticks. As a part of the Club's massive renovation 10 years ago, all tees, greens, and fairways are comprised of slick bent-grass. Dashes of fescue grass provide an eye-catching texture to the terrain but become less appealing when they get entangled with your irons.
Before taking to the course, feel free to warm up at the Club's practice facility, anchored by a 46-station driving range with four multi-tiered target greens. The facility also encompasses two large putting greens and sandtraps for practicing both greenside and fairway sand shots.
