Indian Bluff Golf Course Milan, IL
Indian Bluff Golf Course was built in 1920 and has just completed its centennial existence.
This golf course is considered to be a hidden gem by many. Indian Bluffs is a beautiful course, and for a public course, is well maintained too.
The fairways are lined with trees, and natural ponds and water bodies dot the course. However, water comes into play very rarely.
The terrain is undulating, especially on the back nines. The front nines are relatively flat and wide.
Although there aren’t many doglegs, this is a challenging course with strategically placed bunkers and some tight fairways that would require one to use most of the clubs in the bag.
Measuring 5700 yards from the back tees, this course is small in yardage compared to today’s standards. However, don’t let that fool you, it makes up for it in terms of some tricky holes, tight fairways, and elevation changes.
Accuracy is rewarded more than the driving distance.
With 3 sets of tees, the course can be fun and challenging for players at all skill and age levels.
