Shambolee Golf Course, located on the west end of Lake Petersburg in Menard County, has a rich tradition as a well-maintained course with beautiful greens, fairways and surroundings.

The 6,748-yard, par-72 course, on Rye grass, was designed by Charles Maddox and opened in 1964; it has a 72.1 rating & a slope of 119.
