Here is a question we received from a guest of Farmers Guest House: My wife and I are staying at the Farmer’s Guest House …. We were thinking about going golfing one day. (and) would rather go to a more relaxed, simpler course that would not mind a slower pace, nothing fancy. We don’t mind driving a little bit either. Do you have any suggestions on a course?
Answer: We’re looking forward to your arrival in the next few weeks.
There are several golf courses in the area that fit your needs. The closest course is Galena Golf Club located only a 3 minute drive from Farmers Guest House. If you choose the Galena Golf Club, I would suggest an afternoon tee time when the pace of play and golfers are more relaxed. You can see more at Galenagolf.webs.com
You can choose the East Course at Eagle Ridge. The East Course is their 9-hole course and made for families and couples. The course has less play in the morning, as many golfers use the East Course to sneak in an extra 9 after playing 18 earlier in the day. You can research the options at EagleRidge.com
Lacoma Golf Club is about a 15-minute drive to East Dubuque, but the course is well-maintained, very scenic and relaxed. The course features 45-holes and their original nine-hole Red Course is a more forgiving test of golf and is perfect for families and those learning the game. An added bonus is that on Saturday, September 7 they are hosting a Couples 2-ball event which may be fun for you and your wife. Learn more about the club and the event at LacomaGolf.com
Finally, there is Woodbine Bend Golf Club which is located in the village of Woodbine in the town of Stockton, about 25 minutes away from Farmers Guest House. Woodbine is an open, fun, links-style course with rural views and great golf carts. Woodbine Bend also has a fun restaurant with specials on Friday and Saturday nights. You can research them online at WoodbineBend.com
Wherever you choose to play, you will have a fun day. Let us know if you would like us to reserve your tee time or make any additional recommendations for you. Looking forward to seeing you this September.
