Course Details

The vision of Stone Creek Golf Club came to fruition in 1999 thanks to Clint Atkins and architects Dick and Tim Nugent.  The beautiful 18-hole course in Urbana, Illinois, provided a great test for locals and visitors for almost 20 years.  In 2020, ownership shifted as The Atkins Family made an incredible gift of over 300 acres of real estate to the University of Illinois and the University of Illinois Foundation.  Included in the gift, which was valued at $15 million, was Stone Creek Golf Club (which has now become Atkins Golf Club at the University of Illinois) and its associated buildings and equipment.  The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics partnered with architect Drew Rogers enhance an already strong golf course by rebuilding all greens, relocating many and rebuilding all bunkers using the Better Billy Bunker system, and adding length to allow the teams to stretch the course over 7500 yards.  The renovation has resulted in a championship venue that provides a fun and challenging golf experience to players of all skill levels.

Atkins Golf Club proudly serves as home course for the Fighting Illini Men’s and Women’s Golf Teams.
