Here on the banks of the Kankakee River, the pair whittled dense forest into a string of captivating holes, capping each one with an elusive, undulating target. Kankakee Elks’ satin-smooth, vexingly swift greens are its calling card—the best surfaces south of I-80, some have said. They’re also the 6,430-yard circuit’s best defense, since only a handful of bunkers and a solitary water hazard come into play.
Our championship par 72 ranks among the finest in Kankakee county. With rolling hills, water on 11 holes and huge old oaks, Minne Monesse is a golf course that is enjoyable for both the professional and novice golfer.
