Where should I play between St. Louis and Flip City

This summer, some friends and I are planning to road-trip from St. Louis to Flip City. So far, we are planning to stay the night at Lemon Lake in Crown Point IN (we are camping at courses).

Any great courses with campgrounds you suggest playing/ staying at?

Any courses that can't be passed up that we should pit-stop at?

When you're at Lemon Lake, you're not far from Rogers Lakewood in Valaraiso, a must play imo with some great wooded holes and cool elevation. Up near Flip, the three courses in Mason County Park (Beauty, Beast and Goliath) and nearby Leviathan are all must plays too.

Thanks for the advice. I have no experience out of state so were going to try to play as many as possible.

You should stop in Joliet and get in a round at Highland Park, West Park, or Community Park with me

I was looking at West Park as a stop on the way home. What's the camp ground there like?

There isn't a campground there, but there are a few places not to far off you can camp at.

You'll also be close to Effingham (kind of like an Endicott) and Eagle Point in St. Elmo (kind of like a Rockspring). Definitely a great place to stop for a day or two.

^^^^Glad these guys chimed in; try and hook up with both of them to play and give the tour; their suggestions are good. Peoria also has a good selection.

There are good courses in southern Michigan to play on your way to Flip also. And, I assume you're aware, that the Ludington courses and Leviathan are near Flip and are must plays...
