Course #1 is the shortest and easiest of the 4 tracks at the awesome golf mecca known as Cog Hill. Built in 1927, course #1 is the oldest of the 4, with rolling hills and water on 6 holes. Amazing practice facilities with TopTracer driving range.
Cog Hill has 4 courses. Course 1 and 3 intertwine in the southwest portion of the property. Image courtesy of Google Maps.

Cog has smartly adopted a consistent color scheme for their courses. Course #1 always has blue signage, on course, in the scorecard, etc. Course #3 is red.

This is really cool. For one day in July, they setup Dubsdread as it was for the PGA Tour's 2011 BMW Championship, won by Justin Rose at -13. Rose shot a ridiculous 8-under 63 in round 1, and finished the tournament with an even-par 71. Us mere mortals could play that setup for $195.
