Featured Golf Tip: Playing the Sand Trap

Playing out of a sand trap is many a golfer’s worst nightmare. The secret is to aim for the sand in front of the ball, to open the club face and to go through with the shot. Many golfers stop with the shot as soon as the club makes contact with the sand. The idea is not to get distance, but to pop the ball up in the air and let it fall softly on the green.

Just ten minutes from downtown Peoria, Pine Lakes is an 18 hole public golf course.  We have three sets of tees to challenge all skill levels.  The course has generous tree lined fairways with well placed bunkers and water hazards. The 10th hole maybe one of the most difficult par 4’s in central Illinois.  After your round grab a beverage and enjoy the beautiful view on the deck overlooking the 18th hole.
