Welcome to The Rail Golf Course

The architectural genius of Robert Trent Jones Sr. turned a sprawling 240 acre dairy farm into The Rail Golf Course. Rated 4 stars by Golf Digest and continually voted as one of the best places to play golf in Central Illinois, The Rail was also home to The State Farm Rail Classic from 1976-2006. The Rail Golf Course is home to beautifully manicured fairways, great conditioned greens, and features 5 lakes and 82 sand bunkers. We are known as "Springfield's Finest & Friendliest", and we invite you to reserve your tee time today.
