Whether you are a low handicap golfer or a new golf about to play your first round of golf, The Hills Golf Club at McKendree University features 18 holes that will provide a challenge to every golfer.
The front nine layout requires proper club selection. Uphill and downhill lies along with several doglegs will make you think twice about your choice of club. Accuracy with drivers and approach shots is of the utmost importance.
As you turn from the front nine to the back nine, the focus needs to switch from accuracy to distance. Although the tenth hole appears to be a docile par 3, golfers of all abilities are often fooled by the upper level winds and wind up encountering the front bunker. Once past this short hole, golfers can hit it hard to improve scoring opportunities. What better way to finish a round than our challenging 18th hole! The last hole before the clubhouse requires a blind, uphill drive protected by a lateral hazard that runs the entire right side of the fairway. The a long, narrow green is protected by sand and water.
