Situated between creek tributaries of the Kaskaskia River, this property has attracted many inhabitants through the centuries. Of note among them is Thomas Bond, nephew of the first governor of Illinois, Shadrach Bond. Mr. Bond came to this place in 1851 with a pocketful of cash gleaned from the 1849 California gold rush and decided to settle. The farm remained in the Bond family for the next 120 years, until purchased in 1972 by the Warren Brothers, Bill and Halleck. In October of 1992, Illinois sitting governor Jim Edgar landed his helicopter on what is now the first green, to take part in ground breaking ceremonies for an endeavor that would transform the fields and creeks. The following spring, architect Don Horrell began to contour the flat farmland, creating a meandering network of woodlands, mounds, lake and prairie grasslands that is today the championship course at Governors Run. To delineate the course Mr. Horrell took advantage of the setting that lent itself to distinctively different styles. The front side is characterized by native prairie textures and lakes, promoting an open style of play. The back nine winds through woodlands, over creeks and around lakes, resulting in golf that places a premium on accuracy and shot making. With five sets of tees on every hole, the course can set up very playable. However, breezes off Lake Carlyle can turn this gentle test into a certain fury. Wait for your chances or take your cue from Thomas Bond and "Go for Broke". Either way we certainly hope you enjoy your golfing experience with us.
