The Links At Ireland Grove

Bloomington, Illinois | 9 holes | Par: 30 | 1590 yards

The Links was designed by Jeff Hunt in 2005. When most people think of The Links they think of a Par-3 course, which usually brings to mind a chip-n-putt with inferior conditions. However, The Links is a big course just without the first 200 yards on every hole. The Links gives golfers the ability to play golf, without having to be a great golfer. By shortening the holes and taking out the need to hit driver every hole, players still get to hit the Fun approach shots. Everyone enjoys hitting to a green because they occasionally get the thrill of seeing their ball run up next to the pin. Another benefit of shortening the course is that it also takes less time to play. On average no more than 1.5hrs.
