|Kankakee Elks is a replication of a real course located near Kankakee, Il., and along the Kankakee River.
The course was built in 1926 by William Langford and Theodore Moreau. They carved dense forest into a string of captivating holes, each with a elusive, undulating target. The greens are the courses best defence, since only a handful of bunkers and one water hazard come into play. I’ve created this course in honour of my father, Donald R. Kraft, who introduced me to golf here when I was 10 Yrs. Old (1958). As the 9’s were reversed, I struck my first, on course, shot on the 10th tee. Thanks Dad.
This updated version of Kankakee Elks GC is more accurate than my memory of the course. I thank John, who provided me with recent pictures he had taken while playing the course. Thanks John. I would like to thank Chad and Adelade and others for their review and Chad for finding an original scorecard.
