Cog Hill Golf & Country Club Overview
The golf mecca known as Cog Hill was born in 1926 when the three Coghill brothers purchased land in Lemont and hired David McIntosh to design a golf course. The first course debuted in 1927, followed by the second in 1929, right before the stock market crash that kicked off the great depression. In 1951, former Cog Hill caddie and employee Joe Jemsek bought the property, and the Jemseks have owned it ever since. In 2016, the property was annexed into the suburb of Palos Park.

Four golf courses coexist at Cog Hill, at a variety of price points ranging from sub-$50 (courses #1 and #3) to nearly $200 (course #4 -- Dubsdread). They range from ~6,300 to ~7,500 yards with course ratings to match. The premier course here is Dubsdread, which has hosted numerous professional and amateur tournaments throughout the years. It was the site of the PGA Tour's Western Open (1991-2006) and BMW Championship (2007, 2009-2011). Tiger Woods won the Western and BMW a combined 5 times, while other recent notable winners include Justin Rose, Trevor Immelman, and Dustin Johnson. Cog Hill also hosted the 1997 US Amateur Championship, won by Matt Kuchar.

While the courses have different personalities, they share some characteristics. There’s not a tremendous amount of water across all four venues. In addition, hills and elevation changes add flair across all four tracks. And of course, all are very well kept and nicely manicured. Cog’s practice facilities are excellent, with a huge Toptracer driving range and grass tees too. There’s numerous practice greens throughout the property, with a bunker and chipping area, and an entirely separate golf academy area with six PGA & LPGA professionals. Cog Hill has three separate pro shops, and all the merch you could possibly want, both of the logo and non-logo variety. Somehow the stately clubhouse feels both historic and modern at the same time; maybe classic is the best word to describe it. They host lots of weddings and events here. The restaurant has great food and all the American fare classics you’d expect. You’ll have a great golf experience here.

Cog Hill Course No. 1
Cog Hill’s first course debuted in 1927 and is the easiest of the four on the property, with a course rating of 69.9 and a slope of 120 on the par-71 layout. It’s also the shortest track, at 6,318 yards. Water comes into play on six holes. The fairways are relatively narrow and many are parallel to each other, particularly on holes 3 to 13. The longest hole is the 490 yard 1st hole. The 4th hole is a par-3 with two completely different green complexes and tee boxes, which offers variety for replays.

Miscellaneous photo of Cog Hill Course #1 in Palos Park, Illinois. Throughout the summer, Cog Hill has cool events where they setup Dubsdread as it was for the PGA Tour's BMW Championship from 2009-2011, with Sunday pin placements and all. 
In 2011, Justin Rose won at -13. Rose shot a ridiculous 8-under 63 in round 1, and finished the tournament with an even-par 71. Us mere mortals can play that setup for $195. They also have markers throughout the course showing the location of notable shots, like Tiger's ridiculous recovery shots from from the rough when he won in 2007 and 2009.
