Osgood Golf Course
2,760 Yards, Par 33, 9 Hole Course, 3 Hole Executive Course
Kevin Atkinson of Phelps Design had a great vision to turn barren farmland into one of the most unique courses in the area. After extensive and heavy earth moving, Osgood Golf Course formed into a visually intimidating course, but is laid out in a way that every golfer can enjoy.
Many fairways and greens are guarded by extensive – and oftentimes steep – mounding. Much of the course is also accented by sprawling native grasses.
If you’re looking for a quick practice session or are pressed for time, check out their three-hole Executive course. This three-hole loop has multiple tee boxes giving players the chance to approach different greens from different directions.
Be sure to hit the driving range and practice greens as well on this North of Normal course.
