Where to Stay to Enjoy Kokopelli Golf Club

Southern Illinois is known for a breathtaking scenery, delicious wines, and relaxing lake life, but did you know we’re also home to an award-winning golf course? To round out the leisure activities travelers experience here, golfing is a family-favorite sport with a rich culture here at Southern Illinois’ longstanding award-winning golf club, Kokopelli Golf Club.

Kokopelli is a household name to locals. We all know, respect, and love every opportunity we get to enjoy the experience Kokopelli Golf Club has offered to Southern Illinois for generations. In addition to Kokopelli’s 18-hole course, Kokopelli offers a full-service pro shop, professionals who offer personal golf instruction and an eight-acre practice facility.

Kokopelli Golf Club is also home to The Turn. The Turn is a restaurant and lounge known for its forward-thinking cocktails and yummy entrees. The Turn is a beloved place to enjoy a drink made right with great company. Their website says it best: “This picturesque destination is the perfect backdrop for a lunch with friends or to escape and unwind with our extensive selection of bourbon, beer, wine, and signature cocktails.”

3. Dam Near Lake of Egypt Cabins

Dam Near Lake of Egypt Cabins are three waterfront cabins located near both Lake of Egypt and other Southern Illinois’ gems like Kokopelli Golf Club – just 17 minutes away. All three of the cabins are pet-friendly waterfront properties designed for total relaxation. We love these cabins for solo-travelers, best friends, couples, and small families who are looking peaceful landscapes that don’t skimp on clean modern interior design.

This review describes the experience the best:

“We loved this cabin! Our puppies could run around outside as we enjoyed swimming in the pond and paddle boarding. There are SO many things to do in the area so we had a perfect balance of being active with a hike or bike ride in the morning and then lounge by the pond in the afternoon. The cabin was spotless and had everything we needed for our stay. Allison was very responsive to any inquiry we had and her guidebook of local attractions and businesses was so helpful. We had an amazing stay and highly recommend this cabin!” – Lisa P.
