Crab Orchard Golf Club

Crab Orchard Golf Club is located off of Illinois Rt. 13 midway between Carbondale and Marion. The course was constructed in 1958 and features some of the best conditioning in Southern Illinois. Five sets of tees allow the golfer to select the yardage that will make the game fun. The course measures 6400 yards from the back tee, but par is 70, making golf demanding from the tips. COGC features Zoysia and Bermuda grass for tees and fairways with Bent grass on the putting surfaces. The many huge oak trees that line the fairways coupled with several water hazards make accuracy a premium. COGC also features great food in the Clubhouse. A fully stocked pro shop with a very experienced staff can help with any of your golf needs to include club fitting and lessons. Visit Their Web Site

The Gambit Golf Club

The Gambit Golf Club offers a superb championship layout routed through rolling meadows and woodlands in southernmost Illinois. The par 71 Richard Osborne design offers golfers, of all abilities, a challenging yet pleasurable golf experience. The term "gambit" means to take a calculated risk for a greater reward and each hole will present every golfer with that opportunity. Enjoy the magnificent vistas from our perfectly manicured bent grass greens or work on your games at our spacious practice range. We are located in Vienna, Illinois on Route 146 off Interstate 24 south of Marion, Illinois. In the club house, there is also a great pro shop for all your accessories and a place to relax and get all your refreshments. Visit Their Web Site
