The Panther Creek project began in 1989 in the far southwest corner of Springfield along Route 4 (Veterans Parkway). The area, once surrounded by undeveloped farmland, is now at the center of booming residential and commercial development. Located just south of Interstate 72 at Panther Creek Drive, the subdivision features 310 lots and an upscale condominium area amidst its 410 acres. The development is anchored by Panther Creek Country Club, a private championship golf course designed by 1991 U.S. Open Champion Hale Irwin. One of two private country clubs in Springfield, PCCC offers its members a beautiful clubhouse, fine dining, and several recreational amenities. Panther Creek remains one of the finest subdivisions in Springfield and is consistently recognized as one of the best places to live in the metropolitan area.
