Cog Hill Golf & Country Club (No.4 Dubsdread course)

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1927

Cog Hill Golf & Country Club (No.4 Dubsdread course): The internationally acclaimed Cog Hill Golf & Country Club, located in the southwestern "hinterland" of Chicago, is home to four championship golf courses. Most famous of all is the No.4 (Dubsdread) course, which has hosted the highest level of tournaments. Since opening in 1964, "Dubsdread" has been rated among the Top 100 golf courses in the USA, and has hosted numerous USGA and PGA Tour events. In 2008, Rees Jones headed a renovation of this classic Dick Wilson design, which places a premium on shot-making with heavily bunkered landing areas and undulating putting surfaces.

The No.2 "Ravines" course also features a challenging championship layout with tree-lined fairways, ravines, water hazards and plenty of threatening bunkers. The course, along with the Dubsdread, is recognised as one of the top courses in Illinois, and was a qualification course for the 1997 US Amateur Championship.

Cog Hill's original No.1 (Blue) course opened to the public in 1927. The course is routed through rolling, wooded terrain and provides a blend of playing lengths and difficulty to challenge golfers of all playing abilities. The No.3 (Red) course, a fraction longer than No.1, features enough sand, woods, and water to test the accomplished player without punishing the beginner.

Did you know?

The village of Lemont, Illinois was settled in 1836, and about 90 years later three brothers by the name of Coghill bought a farm from John McLaughlin on the west side of Parker Road. Like a snowball rolling downhill, this farm began the complex that today is Cog Hill Golf & Country Club.

The most famous of Cog Hills' four courses is the No.4 Dubsdread course, which has hosted many top level PGA Tour and national competitions (see our Tournaments section >by Venue > Cog Hill).

Published ranking

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
