Golf Deals: Green River Country Club offers a fun challenge in Walnut, Illinois

WALNUT, Illinois — Green River Country Club is a member-owned 9-hole course that offers a fun challenge because of its narrow fairways, difficult par-3 holes and abundance of mature trees.

"What makes it unique is, it's set up really nice for beginners as well as very challenging for people who have been playing a long time," said John Middleton, a board member of Green River Country Club. "Pretty much any time you would like to come out and play, you can come out, no tee time required."

The signature hole of the course is the 7th hole, a par-4.

"It's one of my favorites," said Middleton. "You just come off of two par-threes, very challenging par-threes and so this is a great opportunity to make birdie, as long as you have a nice drive. It's a high-risk, reward type of situation. The fairway narrows as you get close to the green but it's set-up really nice for birdie."

Green River Country Club is celebrating its 90th anniversary on August 25th.
