Baker Park…

Baker Park, located at the intersection of IL 81 & Lexington Ave, offers a par 71, 18 hole golf course.  The front nine is all flat holes, while the back 9 offers a little more of a challenge with the hills.  Need to warm up before your round? Or just need to perfect your swing? Then take hit some practice balls at our driving range.  Tokens can be purchased at the driving range or from the clubhouse.  Also, remember to stop in at the 19th Hole Restaurant, located at 1095 Cambridge Rd., for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant offers a full menu plus snacks and ice cold refreshments to take advantage of.
Men’s, women’s, senior’s, couple’s and junior’s leagues are available.  Playdays/golf outings can be scheduled, typically on Saturdays and Sundays.  These are assigned on a first come, first serve basis.  Contact the Kewanee Park District Office at 309-852-2872 for more information.
Baker Park is more than just a golf course.  The park also consists of the Pleasure Drive.  This wonderful, scenic drive offers a relaxing tour through the park.  You can drive through to simply enjoy the view or walk through to give yourself a nice cardiovascular workout.  Gate to gate the distance is approximately 2 miles.  Whether you are driving or walking the Baker Park Pleasure Drive, please do so with caution as the drive travels through portions of the golf course as well.

During the winter, you can cross-country ski through the Pleasure Drive or go sledding down the suicide or twin hills.  Participation in skiing or sledding is at your own risk so please take precautions.
