Comments

Island Green Golf Club is in Republic, MO, which is a western suburb of Springfield. The course started as 9-holes but, when Dale Boatright purchased the course in 2000, he added a back nine which included a true Island Green (#15). His daughter, Beverly, still owns the course and runs a first class operation. The GM, Regina Sarber, has been with the family for 30 years. As opposed to the Great Life course GM in Springfield, Regina is the one of the nicest and most hospitable General Managers in the state.

Overall, the course is in good condition, is very playable and offers a good test of your golfing skills. The greens are mostly small with some significant breaks/tiers . . . and fairly fast. The greens have a few trouble spots but the course is on top of it. And, they are in the process of renovating all of the numerous sand traps on the course.

If you are going to IGGC for the first time, be careful of your GPS system. Mine directed me to the neighboring farm.

If I lived in the southwest portion of Springfield, Island Green would be my “go to” course. It is a great community course and offers an outstanding value.
