Bull Valley is a course that just tries to be as hard as possible. I'm a scratch and had fun, but I couldn't see any double digit handicapper who hits it less than 250 having any sort of enjoyment out there. The piece of land it sits on is incredible for Illinois, and is well utilized on holes 4, 11, and 14. The green complexes are cool with a decent number of slopes and ridges. It would have been so cool to see what this course could have looked like were it built by a different, restorationist architect.
