Shepherd’s Crook Golf Course – Zion, IL
Holes: 18 Par: 71 Yardage: 6,827 Architect: Keith Foster
Opened in August, 1999 Shepherd’s Crook has earned rave reviews as a course that is both challenging and exciting to play. Designed by Keith Foster, who has designed some of the most interesting courses built in the last 10 years, is a links-style course that creates a feeling of playing Ireland’s Ballybunion or Waterville courses. Shepherd’s Crook’s design reflects the golden era of golf course architecture of the 1920’s and 30’s with bentgrass fairways, tees, and greens.
“Shepherd’s Crook is routed with classic and strategic design principles that cut features naturally to the terrain. The vision of Shepherd’s Crook returns golfers to the game’s past” – Keith Foster, Architect for Shepherd’s Crook Golf Course.
