    Don't use the coordinates on that website. That is wrong. Puts you near Litchfield, which is north of St. Louis.

    Try

    38° 11' 16.3" N

    -89° 45' 25.5"

    Or, in decimal:

    38.1878

    -89.7569

    That should get you pretty close.

    I have tried to input the "1 Event Lane" address for the Grand in my Garmin StreetPilot c530, but it does not recognize that. I updated the c530 tonight & still no luck. I cannot figure out how to enter the GPS coordinates in my unit. Does anyone have a street address that is close to the entrance? Thanks in advance. Tim Hall

    39.188, 89.755 should be the spot.

    I had a different address from last year in my GPS.

    It was

    1320 Melmar Dr.
    Sparta, Il

    So I did a Mapquest using this address and the address that V10 put on here and from my place, they showed there was 3 miles difference and 5 minutes in time.

    I suspect either addess will work.

    They both ended up at the same spot.

    Thanks to all. I know how to get there just like playing with my gps. See if it goes the same way I do.

    Shot there the first year. I guess it looks different with grass and being green.
