Near where we grew up – shame we didn’t take up golf earlier in life so we could’ve worked on mastering this course a lot sooner. We’ve had some great times here. Lake of the Woods Golf Course is consistently rated as one of the Favorite Golf Courses in Champaign County. It offers an 18-hole regulation course, a 9-hole Par 3 course and a practice range. You’re likely to see some deer on the green during your approach shot – no, they’re not going to move until you make your first putt.
The par-72 golf course at Lake of the Woods in Mahomet, Illinois measures over 6500 yards from the back (blue) tees. It was designed by Robert B. Harris, ASGCA, and opened for play in 1951. If you’re in Champaign to catch the Illini or to check out the town (for whatever reason), grab your sticks and hit this course up.
