— COURSE INFORMATION —
Located near the historic villages of Dixon and Oregon, Illinois — about 75 minutes west of Chicagoland — is Lost Nation Golf Club . . . a challenging, yet playable, 18-hole public beauty that awaits your test and enjoyment.
Built in the mid 1960s as a private course for the adjacent Lost Nation Woodland Homesteads community (now named Lost Lake), the course opened to public play in the 1970s. Today, the course is a local and regional favorite for many reasons, but most notably due to the course's scenic natural qualities provided by surrounding forestland. Aside from boasting quiet, serene and natural surroundings, the course features a Pro Shop with an ample supply of quality merchandise, a bar and grille with an outdoor deck overlooking the tee boxes for holes 1 and 5, a practice putting green, and a small practice area to work on the short-range and mid-range game. Additionally, Lost Nation is well conditioned and maintained, and is well known for its large and undulating greens that reward well planned and well executed approach shots. Hosting of group golf outings is truly a specialty of Lost Nation Golf Club and its staff.
