Detailed description
Blackhawk Run Golf Course, previously named Stockton Atwood Community Golf Club is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Stockton, Illinois.

Blackhawk Run Golf Course first opened for play in 1964 as a 9-hole facility. The course was expanded to 18-hole in 1996.

Blackhawk, has wide open fairways and a few elevated greens. The terrain is rolling, and there are trees that can alter your shots. There is a man-made lake that comes into play a few times on the original layout, and a creek running through the new design that also affects several holes. The signature hole is #18, a 189-yard, par 3, requiring a tee shot over water to a well-bunkered green.

Black Hawk Run was named after the Black Hawk of the Sauk Indians. Black Hawk (or Black Sparrow Hawk as he was orinally known) led a dissident band of Sauk and Fox indians into the rock river valley of northwest Illinois in the spring of 1832 in an attempt to reclaim tribal lands from American settlers. The move precipitated the tragic "Black Hawk War" and led to the decimation of the band by elements of the Illiinois Militia and U.S. Army.
