Hidden Gem of the Day: “Oak Grove Golf Course in Harvard, Illinois”

Published

on

These aren’t the traditional “top-100” golf courses in America, or the ultra-private golf clubs you can’t get onto. These are the hidden gems; they’re accessible to the public, they cost less than $50, but they’re unique, beautiful and fun to play in their own right. We recently asked our GolfWRX Members to help us find these “hidden gems.” We’re treating this as a bucket list of golf courses to play across the country, and the world. If you have a personal favorite hidden gem, submit it here!

Today’s Hidden Gem of the Day was submitted by GolfWRX member gardnerfuller, who takes us to Oak Grove Golf Course in Harvard, Illinois. Despite being out of the way, gardnerfuller believes this course is well worth a visit should you find yourself in the area.

“The course is built out in the middle of nowhere between the Wisconsin and Illinois border. A lot of really good holes out there (one “mickey mouse” par 5). If you are ever in the Lake Geneva area and want to head out there, it’s <25min drive, and you can get away from the resort style courses. A lot of fun for sure. Be sure to sign up for their email club and check the website for coupons as they ALWAYS have some sort of promo going on.”

According to Oak Grove Golf Course’s website, 18 holes during the week will set you back around $49, while the rate rises slightly to $59 on weekends.

    Im impressed. I live about 1 hr from here near the city and was blown away by this course a few years ago. Just so picturesque with fun holes and a heck of a challenge. People forget to get the rolling hills of golf you need to steo away from Chicago and go about 35-45 minutes in any direction. Im not getting into the Best Hidden Gem argument but if you can play this course , juz do it! Well Done GolfWrx

    This is not even the best hidden gem in that county. Blackstone is.

Today’s Hidden Gem of the Day was submitted by GolfWRX member Gizmogolf, who takes us to WildHorse Golf Club in Gothenburg, Nebraska. In Gizmogolf’s description of the course, he singles out the fast greens as being the main attraction for a visit to this track.

“Nearly as good as Sand Hills.  Less isolated just off I-80.  Best greens you’ll ever play–lightning fast.”

According to WildHorse Golf Club’s website, walking 18 holes during the week will set you back $51.50, while the rate rises to $61.50 should you want to play on the weekend.

Hidden Gem of the Day: Cape Arundel Golf Club in Kennebunkport, Maine

These aren’t the traditional “top-100” golf courses in America, or the ultra-private golf clubs you can’t get onto. These are the hidden gems; they’re accessible to the public, they cost less than $50, but they’re unique, beautiful and fun to play in their own right. We recently asked our GolfWRX Members to help us find these “hidden gems.” We’re treating this as a bucket list of golf courses to play across the country, and the world. If you have a personal favorite hidden gem, submit it here!

Today’s Hidden Gem of the Day was submitted by GolfWRX member gvogel, who takes us to Cape Arundel Golf Club in Kennebunkport, Maine. A Walter Travis designed course, Cape Arundel is a short links-style track, and gvogel has a good rationale as to why this place is well worth a visit.

“Cape Arundel in Kennebunkport ME is $50 before May 18 or after October 2. I would think that after October 2, this Walter Travis course would be a hidden gem. I haven’t played it, but many Presidents have. That’s good enough for me.”

Gvogel isn’t the only member who thinks this course is a hidden gem either, with fellow GolfWRX member runningdog stating

“The course is well worth the price of admission. It’s short but tight and tough.”

According to Cape Arundel Golf Club’s website, 18 holes from October-May will set you back $50, while to play after 4 pm ‘in-season’ it costs $55.
