Hawthorn Ridge is a public 18-hole, par 72 golf course, with four sets of tees, precisely contoured greens and sand traps, and a newly renovated club house. This course sprawls out across much of the 155 acre property, and with rolling hills, some long straightaways, beautiful mature oak timber, and eight ponds scattered across the property, the scenery is breath-taking. Designed by William J. Spear and built in 1975, this course has been revamped and brought up to a new level of luster, by the current owners. Rated a 4-Star facility by Golf Digest, Hawthorn Ridge is regarded by many as one of the best public golf facilities in the greater Quad City Area. A full schedule of tournaments and outings are booked for this season, and business is bustling. The club house offers a dining room that is available for reservations to host parties or business meetings, and has a capacity of 50 occupants, with picturesque views of Hawthorn Ridge. A golf cart garage is located under the clubhouse, and drives out directly onto some of the paved cart trails. Two sizable equipment storage and maintenance buildings, and most of the golf course maintenance equipment is included with the sale, to make this venture as “turn-key” as possible for the new owners. With excellent road frontage on Highway 94, and located just two miles south of Aledo, IL (the Mercer County seat), this is an excellent place for any business to be located.
The quality wildlife habitat this property offers, and frontage on legendary Pope Creek, make this one piece of ground that could offer outstanding hunting for those looking to harvest trophy deer, and turkeys, each season. With a few minor tweaks to the landscape, and some pond stocking and management, this property could easily become a world-class multi-use recreational wonderland that would be the envy of any golfer, fisherman, hunter or general outdoor enthusiast. When was the last time you saw a property that could offer this much year-round recreational enjoyment, with the revenue stream already in place to sustain and manage itself? They are very hard to come by! Contact for more information, or to schedule a private tour, today.
