Rend Lake Golf Resort Complex
Rend Lake Golf was built in 1976 and designed by Larry Packard. Another 9 holes were added in 1994 making it a 27-hole course.
This hotel course is beautiful and scenic and has stay and play golf with varied packages and condos available and is a feature of this property.
The courses are pretty with flowering trees and with some holes having views of the lake.
Although the course is not hilly, it does have some undulations, a variety of left and right doglegs as well as water hazards that come into play in many holes.
One notable aspect of this course is the big-sized greens that feature on many holes.
The course also has a nice layout with a circular pattern and one can play the 3 courses in any 18-hole combination.
Each of the 3 combinations measures more than 6800 yards in length and so is relatively lengthy.
With 5 sets of tees and with 3 combinations to choose from, this course can be challenging and fun for both novice and beginner golfers.
