    An awesome course with a great price. A former air force course that declined a bit but has been brought back as a must play course fin the area. I'm a 90s player and enjoyed the challenge of this course, supplemented by the scenery (including abandoned USAF buildings in the rough and a hole along old runways). Try it, you'll like it.

    Willow Pond is back on the map as one of the great courses in the area. The new owner Kevin Applebee has put a great amount of time and money into the course and clubhouse to give it a very welcoming feeling. The prices are very reasonable as well as the yearly pass. If you want to get a quick round of golf in and enjoy the day with your buddies, this is a great place to go. They can have a pizza ready for you in 4 minutes as well as many other great menu items. Make sure you check out the events they have during the summer. Always a good time at Willow Pond.

    When I played the course in the 60's and 70's it was one of the finest courses in central Illinois. It has since declined to an average course and not well kept. Hopefully the new owner will change all that in the future. Right now the price increases for 2014 does not match the quality of the course the way it is now. I plan on playing it sometime later in the year and hopefully that will change, so maybe next year I would be interested in buying a yearly membership at that price.
