The 18-hole, par 72 Fox Bend Golf Course spans 6,890 yards of kempt fairways and rolling greens to form a well-maintained grassy monolith that has played host to three Illinois Opens and a 2010 USGA qualifier. Throughout the lush links, mature trees frame short-grass corridors peppered with a total of 34 sand traps and frequent water hazards that complicate each spheroid's passage onto slick, boldly contoured greens. Take a virtual course tour to begin preparing for the 175-yard shot needed to clear the par 3 15th's deep bunker fortifications while still landing the ball on the hole's relatively shallow green. Hone your fairway wood game to set up an eagle putt on Fox Bend's signature par-5 fifth hole, where bold duffers reckon with a watery ravine that sits right in front of the green and subsists on the souls of mishit orbs.
A relatively challenging course when played from the back tees, the course features four tee options to accommodate players of all abilities and those swinging with lightly modified salad tongs. With today's deal, divot-gouging duos and formidable foursomes alike receive the assistance of a gas-powered cart to traverse the verdant grounds and ignite the engine in competitors' backswings.
Fox Bend Golf Course's rates vary throughout the day, week, and year.
