Golf course is beautiful; however, the sand pits are hard as rocks with hardly any sand in them. The fairways don't have a good stand of grass.

This is pretty interesting if you are a history fan of Lincoln. This deals with Abe's parents. Well kept grounds and restrooms. Was supposed to pay a small fee but no one was around and no envelope to place fee in. Great little stop though....More

This is the place to start your Lincoln trail. The marriage certificate of Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks is filed in the Washington County Court House in Springfield. Many people feel that Abraham Lincoln was actually born in Washington County. This is where it started!
