Channahon Tournament

Has anyone played this course and is it worth a 4 hour early morning drive? I can only play Sunday's right now and this is the closest thing I can see. Is the course long, short, wooded or open? Thanks

I played 4 or 5 years ago. From what I remember, I liked it. I remember it being not long, with some tight lines. Not just open crusher holes. However, Im sure the tour buddies would have a better review. Mike, Chad?

Are you kidding me? Any tournament run by Gary Lewis is worth a 4-hour drive! That being said, I won't be able to play because I'm going to run a race on Sunday morning.

The course itself is set in a nice natural area (basically a reclaimed prarie), with enough trees to define a fairway. The main hazards are tall grass and, in some places, thick shule. Frank Grimes has done a great job getting concrete tees installed and landscaping some of the holes. It used to be my favorite course when I lived in Joliet, and I'd say it's still one of the better courses in Illinois. Overall, the course isn't too challenging from the short tees (think -10 for a good score), but it can play tough from the long tees. All bets are off on Sunday though, since the forecast is calling for a replay of the weather we had at the Iowa Team Tournament.

Doug, get in touch with me if you need any more info.

Thanks guys, I saw the weather outlook, I hate more driving to and from than actually playing in it.
