Cinder Ridge Golf Course

Located in Wilmington, Illinois, Cinder Ridge Golf Course features 18-hole course, designed by owner George Kappos. Nominated for best design by Golf Digest and has been rated 4.5 Stars in Golf Advisor.

Cinder Ridge Golf Course is a public 18-hole championship golf course that spreads over 350 lush green acres. It winds over and through diving ravines, flat areas, and coal refuse that were created over 70 years prior by mining operations in the land. The course gets its name from the ridge of cinders still visible.

The Design

The course is tough off the tees but eases off on the fairways and greens. The tee areas are larger than average, providing the opportunity for varied tee positions that lengthen or shorten the hole and offer different playing angles. The course has 52 traps with relatively flat medium-to-large greens (about 5,000 square feet to 8,000 square feet). Additionally, the large tees on all par threes prevent excessive wear in any one area—providing golfers with consistent, quality conditions they deserve. The golf course was designed so each hole maintains its privacy, and golfers feel as if they are on their own private oasis in the wild.

A Course for Everyone

Five sets of tees enable golfers of all levels and abilities to enjoy the course at their pace and preferred challenge, from 4,840 yards to 6,968 yards. The course is also extremely well marked to yardage to speed play, meaning rounds should take no more than 4:15. For your enjoyment of the game, there is a 10-acre practice area.

Bar and Grill

Our deli offers a variety of snacks and drinks, along with our famous all beef franks, brats and sandwiches made fresh everyday. A small service bar is available.
