“The Den at Fox Creek became the City of Bloomington’s third golf course when it opened on August 1, 1997. This Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course measures 6,926 yards from the Palmer Tees and 5,345 yards from the Forward Tees. USGA Course Ratings and Slope Ratings are 72.9 and 128, respectively. Bentgrass tees, greens and fairways compliment the Wild Prairie Grasses which grow in the rough to make a picturesque Scottish Links Style golf course. The course features 131 strategically placed sand traps, making the extremely wide fairways even more attractive. Water hazards are located on 9 of the 18 holes.
Other amenities include an extremely large practice putting green, a large practice chipping green (with practice sand bunker) and a very large grass driving range with several target greens. A full-line Golf Shop offers golf equipment and apparel at discount prices. The Den at Fox Creek has become the host golf course for the Illinois High School Association’s Class AA Boys State Championships. Mr. Palmer himself shot 74 during his Grand Opening Round.” – Den at Fox Creek
