The Yorktown Gold Course is a 37.2 acre golf course arcel situated in the southwestern corner of the Village of Shiloh, St. Clair County, Illinois. The course has been used by golfers since it opened in 1961 and was designed by renowned golf course designers, Bob Goalby and Pete Dye. Yorktown Golf Course is the only Goalby & Dye golf course in the Greater St. Louis Area. In addition, some residents visit the site to walk the golf cart path (during periods of slow or no play) and use the driving range.
The project site is flat to rolling topography, primarily turf grass with many mature trees (e.g., pine, maple, oak) species established. Two ponds on the site are fed by an intermittent stream from the west and are used to irrigate the course. HeartLands Conservancy assisted the Village of Shiloh with obtaining a state grant to purchase the property, which was at risk of closing, in 2012.
The property is now owned by the Village of Shiloh and managed by a management company. Learn more at: https://yorktowngc.com/
