Chicago Golf Course Review

Cog Hill Golf Club - Course #1 | Chicago golf course

Located just SW of Chicago along highway 171, Cog Hill is easy to get to from any of the major freeways. Take 83 south to 171 and follow it to the clubhouse. The practice range is visible off the road and precedes the club entrance. Come early to practice and stay around afterwards for a drink or meal. This is a great environment for golf - and one that all levels of golfers can appreciate. Highly recommended. The spacious clubhouse features men's and women's locker rooms (the men's has 195 lockers, 6 private shower stalls and a shoe cleaning station) Dubs Pub Lounge (great atmosphere) and an expansive restaurant and patio serving breakfast, lunch and some dinners. Separate, fully stocked pro shops service courses 1 and 3 plus 2 and 4 and are furnished with the latest in golf clubs, shoes, attire and accessories. Cog Hill courses # 1, 2, and 3 are moderately priced layouts - and afford visitors an opportunity, as a guest, to experience all the Cog Hill amenities that the pros are accustomed to.

The practice facilities at Cog Hill include a secluded range and short game area for chipping and bunker practice. Expansive putting greens are located at three separate locations on property. Staff and workers at Cog Hill are unpretentious - willing to assist the average person and provide nearly the same service that is afforded players on the tour . Top service is one of the prime reasons Cog Hill assures a good time to as many as 1200 golfers a day during prime season - as well as hosting a myriad of receptions, banquets, golf outings, meetings and special events. Over 400 people are employed at the Club during peak season! The success of Cog Hill as a major player in the golfing industry is largely related to the perseverance and dedication of its owner, Joe Jemsek - who began his career as a caddie and worker on the original courses here in almost every capacity - truly an original American success story!

Course #1

With the help of local golf architect Robert McIntosh, the founding Coghill brothers opened the original Cog Hill No. 1 on the 4th of July weekend in 1927 to rave reviews. In 1963, in order to add a third course, designers broke up the original 18, to allow both #1 and #3 to start and finish at the original clubhouse. Since then, #1 is composed of the first four holes of the front nine, plus nine new holes, and then return to the clubhouse on the last five holes of the original front nine. The layout routes through gently rolling, wooden terrain and offers a nice blend of lengths and difficulty, requiring a range of shot-making ability.

The courses at Cog Hill are sufficiently marked with color coded stakes as yardage indicators - red for 100, white for 150 and blue for 200 yards away. Daily pin placement sheets provide hole locations, and the tee areas are marked with GAM's. At course #1, 31 Bunkers are strategically located near greens and fairways, and water comes into play on 3 holes. The course features enough sand, woods, and water to test the accomplished player without punishing the beginner.
